Dartware LLC — a company that develops network monitoring, alerting and troubleshooting software — has updated their flagship product, InterMapper, to version 3.6.1.
The Mac OS X compatible product now allows a network manager to monitor the status of their Apple and Cisco wireless access points. InterMapper 3.6.1 displays the number of clients associated with a base station, along with the client name or MAC address and the signal strength for each client. In addition to the wireless enhancements, Dartware has added several other features that extend InterMapper’s utility, according to
MacTech magazine .
InterMapper can now send notifications to SMTP servers that require authentication. With an improved Log File, you can now control the interval at which data is written to chart log files (and values will only be written once per time interval). InterMapper 3.6.1 uses OpenSSL on the traditional Mac operating system to avoid memory leaks and to test servers that use private SSL Certificates.
It has new SNMP v2c versions of the Cisco and Basic OID probes. There are also new probes to test MeetingMaker and VNC servers. InterMapper 3.6.1 also supports InterMapper Remote, a remote viewer application that provides a live display of maps of the network via the Internet. This means it’s no longer necessary to be on-site to see the extent of a network glitch.
InterMapper 3.6.1 is priced by the number of devices being monitored. Pricing ranges from US$1,995 for an unlimited number of devices to $295 for 10 devices. All licenses include a 60-day support subscription. Educational discounts are also available. What’s more, Dartware is offering a 10 percent discount on all purchases made through April 30.
