Dartware LLC’s network monitoring and alerting software for the Mac, InterMapper, has been updated to version 3.0.4. The new version is ready for download from the InterMapper Web site.
InterMapper enables Mac-based system administrators to create graphical views of their networks complete with detailed information about devices, servers and links on the network. The software monitors various network services to make sure they’re functioning properly and can notify the network manager when failures and errors occur. A built-in Web server enables the manager to check the network status from any Web browser, as well.
InterMapper 3.0.4 was originally released on January 26, but was released with the version number 3.0.4b1. The new release is identical to that release, with its version number updated to reflect its final release status.
Changes in InterMapper 3.0.4 are as follows:
Changed OT TCP code to restart TCP listeners that close on their own. This should fix a reported problem where the web server occasionally goes deaf.
InterMapper will no longer run on a Mac OS 9 machine running Open Transport SNMP. Instead it will quit with a warning message.
Fixed a bug in logging strip chart data which could cause an assertion fail.
Added support for ‘NFRr’ type serial numbers.
InterMapper was originally developed by Bill Fisher and Rich Brown as a network monitoring tool for Dartmouth College’s own AppleTalk and IP-based network. The software was later released as a commercial product in 1996.
System requirements for InterMapper 3.0 call for a 68030-based Mac or faster; Mac OS 7.0 or later; 8MB RAM; and a network connection. A Carbon-compliant version for Mac OS X is planned, as well.
InterMapper is sold in varying license formats depending on the size of the network it will monitor, ranging from US$295 to $1995. Academic discounts and upgrade pricing is also available. A downloadable demo of the software is available.
