InterMapper 5.1.3 Ranking & Summary
InterMapper 5.1.3 description
It's on-screen maps can be printed to document the network configuration. InterMapper also monitors the utilization and traffic and error rates on WAN and LAN links within the network. When InterMapper detects a problem, it sends notifications to one or more responsible individuals. InterMapper has a built-in web server that allows the network manager to view the network health from a standard web browser.
- Network maps provide at-a-glance views of device status and real-time traffic flow.
- Color-coding shows elements that are slow or having problems
- Intuitive animation depicts traffic flows
- Maps show interconnections between elements
- Network elements appear in physical or geographic locations
- Status badges indicate severity level (down, alarm, warning, critical)
- Multiple views highlight device details, interconnections, and staff assignments
- Map "slideshow" rotates at user-defined interval
- Maps are continually saved (every minute or so) to prevent data loss
- Strip Charts graph network performance for elements and connections.
- network data includes percent utilization, error counts, packet and byte counts, etc
- Router and server data includes link, temperature, CPU/memory utilization, etc.
- Charts present day, week, month, and year intervals
- Graphs generated by clicking on mapped element or connection.
- Status Windows quickly display data collected from the network.
- Interface Status Windows detail transmit and receive statistics for that interface, utilization rates, and the devices name, link type, description, status, and IP and MAC address
- Device Status Windows display DNS name and IP address, uptime, availability, packet loss statistics (if relevant) round trip time, and many other device-specific data values
- Status windows appear when you click and hold the mouse button on a mapped element or connection and disappear when the mouse is released
- Windows "tear off" for persistent viewing
- InterMapper Authentication Server (IM AuthServer) provides the ability to check logins against a company-wide directory, such as Active Directory, LDAP, Open Directory, Radius, IAS and others.
- The directory lookups will supplement the names in InterMappers built-in user/password database, to simplify the creation of accounts at organizations with dozens or hundreds of technicians.
- Take advantage of outside data sources (device information, latitude/longitude data) to describe and position network devices. Share InterMapper data with other network monitoring tools and network management solutions.
- Import customer information as you acquire new customers
- Simple import process reads tab-delimited, CSV, or XML files containing customer information (IP address, name, equipment type, and latitude and longitude.)
- Export data in CSV format.
- Export a list of maps and their associated status and/or a list of device interfaces.
- Smaller geographies and more detailed portions of your network are viewed by "drilling down" (clicking on) from top-level network maps.
- Icons on top-level map can show state of most serious condition on a sub-map
- Sub-maps can be hosted on a remote InterMapper server
- Access controlled by username and password or IP address restrictions
- Submaps work across direct IP connections and VPNs and through firewalls (through a user-selected port) to allow viewing via browser without exposing network details to the broader Internet
- Rather than poll thousands of devices from a single server, InterMapper servers can be placed at strategic locations on your network. InterMapper hosts sub-maps at remote locations and accesses that data at a central location to scale easily from single-building LANs to multi-national WANs
- Most monitoring traffic remains local to site to reduce network traffic
- Access can be granted/denied to branch office staff
- Central office staff can access submaps directly or by drilling down on top-level maps
- Remote InterMapper servers may be configured from central location
- Remote data is firewall protected, user-selected firewall port provides secure data access with SSL encryption
- One or more network managers can be alerted to network problems.
- Alerting methods include sounds, email messages, pages, SNMP traps to selected receivers, WinPopup messages, and syslog notification
- Notification schedules (time of day, weekend only) can vary by individual
- Time delay options minimize "nuisance" alarms
- Escalation options help track unresolved issues (page when server goes down, second page if it remains down for two minutes, third page if it remains down longer, etc.)
- Command-line notifications provoke action in response to failure
- Accounts allow or restrict access to network maps and data.
- User and Group accounts supported
- Read/write, Read-only, or no access is set on a map by map basis
- Administrator users have full access to maps, configuration settings and options
- Use LDAP, Active Directory, Radius, IAS, Open Directory, Kerberos to authenticate users
- Set data collection options
- Ignore "outages" that are triggered by desktops that have been shut off or laptops that have been disconnected
- Automatically reprobe (or dont probe) devices every 12 hours
- InterMapper employs a variety of highly reliable methods for discovering and reporting on your networked equipment.
- Any device with an IP address can be pinged
- Traffic on Routers and switches can be monitored using versions SNMPv1, SNMPv2c, or SNMPv3
- Nearly 100 built-in probes can test the health and performance of various kinds of servers, routers, switches, UPSs, environmental monitors and other networked equipment.
- Synthetic transactions test mail, web, and directory servers from over 50 vendors
- Windows NT services are monitored directly
- Host resource probe monitors CPU and disk activity as well as free space on drives.
- LDAP and LDAP-SSL probes support an optional password when binding, allow you to specify an alternate search field, and can trigger an alarm if an insufficient number of records are returned
- Custom probes can be created to test TCP or SNMP-speaking devices
- Command line probes test devices using a program or script. Pre-written Nagios and Big Brother plug-ins/scripts can be used as command line probes.
- Install InterMapper and begin viewing your network in hours " not days, weeks, or months.
- Fixed links in the web interface to SNMP Traffic devices that had originally been created with the Automatic probe.
- Changing the polling interval on a device will now flag a recount of monitored devices.
- Fixed crash that could occur while attempting to translate a previous error number into its textual equivalent on Windows when the error number was out of range.
- Remove "phantom" network oval entries relating to probe groups by removing the largely-unnecessary "guessed from address" interface.
- Encode results of request for device-name attribute for XML.
- Fixed a hang when opening the status window of a Proxim wireless device.
- Reset TAPI when Windows modem configuration is changed.
- Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista/Windows Server 2008 (IPv6 support requires Windows Vista SP1 or Windows Server 2008)
- MacOS X 10.4 and newer
- Solaris SPARC and x86*
- Linux distributions, including Red Hat, Mandrake, Debian, FreeBSD and others
