PLEASANTON, Calif. — July 12, 2012 — ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, today announced the immediate availability of its flagship network monitoring software (NMS), OpManager. Launched in 2011 to deliver an easier, more affordable NMS option for enterprises, the award-winning OpManager 9.2 adds new features and functionality, including agent-based log file monitoring, discovery rule engine, faster discovery, IPAM plug-in, tab customization and more.
Enterprise IT organizations need solutions that can be quickly deployed to production as well as cover every aspect of IT without requiring multiple tools or expensive frameworks. OpManager makes this a reality by adding features like faster discovery, now five times faster than before so that you can discover up to 5,000 interfaces per minute. The new discovery rule engine reduces the time to deployment and brings in a new agent approach to IT, enabling in-depth and critical monitoring, such as log file monitoring of critical apps. It also adds an IP Address Manager as a plug-in, in addition to the existing NetFlow and Network Configuration Management plug-ins.
“One of the primary reasons why SMEs love OpManager is that it is really faster to set up,” said Dev Anand, director of product management, NPM division, ManageEngine. “They can download, install and configure it within 30 minutes. With version 9.2, we have made it attractive for even the large enterprise networks. With a faster discovery option and the rule engine module, it’s now possible to discover and configure thousands of devices in less than an hour.”
The demand for effective monitoring tools continues, whether it’s for BAU monitoring and troubleshooting, or as a tool to identify and resolve bottlenecks for those low latency electronic trading or hpc systems which becomes ever more important as we deploy more complex and consolidated infrastructure and applications, being able to trace, monitor and report on network performance, to eliminate components of the infrastructure can be the difference between deploying infrastructure unnecessarily or removing service and not.
