Heroix Expands Network Monitoring Dashboard with New Capabilities
November 19, 2012
Network diagramming and monitoring has been a tedious task for both IT and non-technical staff. To reduce the efforts associated with application performance and network monitoring, Heroix has added a new dashboard called Heroix Longitude to its network monitoring software.
The network monitoring solution from Heroix is designed to provide comprehensive performance monitoring, immediate results, rapid deployment, ease-of-use, agentless architecture, and intuitive Web interface, in an affordable solution, the company said.
Heroix Longitude simplifies network monitoring by delivering an up-to-date summary and detailed information on the status of applications, servers, and networks. Thanks to the user-friendly visual display, IT administrators or businesses can see, in a single glance, any threats to continuous IT service.
An important upgrade that comes with this release is the monitoring for the newest version of Microsoft SQL Server: SQL Server 2012. Longitude monitors a broad range of platforms such as Microsoft Windows, Red Hat (News - Alert), SuSE, AIX, HP-UX, Solaris and VMware and categories such as OS, Web, database, messaging, network, infrastructure, and user and business metrics.
“CIOs and CTOs, as well as IT directors and other high-level managers, want the ability to see - in an instant - the health of their applications and the IT resources they manage,” said Dick Levin, VP of Development, Heroix, in a statement.
“Their responsibility to meet SLA commitments is closely linked with their ability to immediately understand the status of the company’s IT environment, without spending hours learning overly complex monitoring software,” Levin added.
Reports are presented via large, color-coded pie charts, allowing users to quickly know if an application or server is at or approaching a pre-determined threshold that could create problems for individual or groups of users. A color code ranging from green to red is used to indicate different status.
Longitude has also expanded the solution’s customization abilities to dashboard and reporting, so that companies can make the software truly meet their own unique needs. For example, Longitude’s new grouping capability allows users to view their IT resources based on line of business, geography, or any other organizational groups of their choosing. Users can perform the customization within seconds. The process is so intuitive that even users brand new to Longitude can do it quickly.
Another innovation in the network monitoring tool is the reworked reporting options. The company has used the latest version of Ext JS. Users can get to reports faster, with more detail and fewer clicks and see reports in easy-to-read full-screen graphics.
