Designed for network administrators and system managers who need to maintain a visual idea of what's happening on their network, InterMapper can tell you how network traffic is flowing, along with detailed information on routers, switches, hubs and other SNMP-compliant devices that are attached.

InterMapper 4.0 now supports Windows NT, Windows 2000 and Windows XP, along with Mac OS X and "Classic" Mac OS. Dartware is working on versions for Unix and Linux as well.

The software now features a "Map Status" probe that enables you to view sub-maps whose contents can then be manipulated with InterMapper Remote. You can also configure multiple devices with a single action using "Aggregate Actions." And almost every aspect of operation on an InterMapper server can now be configured remotely using InterMapper Remote.

Dartware also claims that with Map Status, InterMapper is more scalable -- you can place InterMapper servers on remote locations and monitor them from a network operations center, minimizing traffic and thus decreasing server load. InterMapper 4.0 also gains enhanced remote network monitoring with security.

InterMapper licenses start at US$295 and scale upward depending on how many devices you want to add. Support subscriptions provide you with free updates, enhancements and bug fixes for a one year period. More details and demo links are available from the InterMapper Web site.
