NetMinder Ethernet enables administrators to capture and decode packet data. Neon said NetMinder Ethernet is useful for alerting you to security issues, conflicts and traffic bottlenecks. What’s more, its “Packet Inference” rules-based system can interpret unusual network events like Bugbear, Code Red worm and duplicate IP addresses.
LANsurveyor provides admins with network mapping, troubleshooting and management capabilities. The software automatically discovers and maps computers, SNMP and ICMP nodes, including routers and printers. LANsurveyor can be used to develop asset management reports, and also provides features like restart/shutdown, software distribution, application quit/launch and other capabilities.
CyberGauge monitors network and device utilization, and provides graphs in real time. Data can be produced for Web pages or Quality of Service (QoS) and billing reports.
