InterMapper is the only network analyser software that runs on Mac OS computers.
Schools, media companies, advertising agencies, the publishing industry, all rely
on InterMapper for network analysis on their chosen platform.
As a Linux network monitoring
tool, InterMapper runs on most popular Linux distributions. If you are looking for
a Linux network monitoring tool, InterMapper should be your network analyser software.
server monitoring continually tests your servers to ensure that they are working
properly. It sends queries to the server, measures the response time, and also verifies
that the responses are correct. It sends alerts when the service stops operating,
the response time exceeds your thresholds, or some other problem is detected. InterMapper’s
server monitoring probes will monitor:
• WMI and Windows/NT Service tests
• Host Resources MIB via SNMP
• Exchange Server
• Barracuda Spam Filter (and other Spam filters)
• Integrated Processor Management Interface (IPMI)
• Lights out management (LOM)
Windows Management Interface (WMI) probes see deep into the Windows OS to show the
server’s conditions. The Host Resources probe provides a powerful view on the CPU,
disk, and memory state of your server by querying the RFC 2790 MIB using SNMP v1,
v2c, or v3. Windows Services ("NT Services") are monitored directly, and you can
receive an alert if a particular service stops operating.
The software works identically
on all platforms, leaving the choice up to you. You can also mix and match: run the
InterMapper server on one operating system, and let your users run the GUI from their
favourite desktop environment. InterMapper and InterMapper RemoteAccess are also
remarkably frugal in their system requirements. The polling engine has been optimised
to handle even large networks easily.
Although some of the hundreds of built-in probes
are designed to monitor specific hardware or vendor’s equipment, most of the probes
work with virtually any gear. For example, the Ping probe tests access and response
time for anything with an IPv4 or IPv6 address; the SNMP Traffic probes retrieve
traffic and other data from any vendor’s hardware, and the web, mail, ftp, and dns
probes all work with multiple vendors as well.
Furthermore, InterMapper is designed
to monitor any network. Its straightforward graphical user interface and ease of
use make it suitable to smaller networks. Installation is simple and it’s easy to
map and start monitoring a network within minutes.
Larger organisations appreciate
its ease of use and the clarity InterMapper offers with its overview of the network.
architecture permits it to scale easily from single-building LANs to multi-national
WANs, meeting the network monitoring needs of large environments with minimal overhead.
