Codima, a provider of integrated network management software products, has announced the availability of Codima (News - Alert) Toolbox 6.9, which now features support for Windows 7.
"Codima Toolbox 6.9 is a good example on how we collaborate with customers to fully bring the user perspective into our solution and add more customer value," said Phil Friend, CTO at Codima.
For the IT professionals, the newest version comes with a one point access platform to visual reports that deliver critical information and traffic priority analysis that diagnose network performance to better manage Data and VoIP networks.
Thanks to the new Reports Manager -- used across the entire Codima Toolbox -- IT professionals have an invaluable resource, harvesting network information from one single point of access and creating visual reports.
Company officials said that report styles can be customized, and reports can be converted into local languages, for example reducing language barriers within organizations. Also, Reports Manager features over 90 predefined reports for users. Plus, created daily, weekly or monthly in Microsoft (News - Alert) Word and HTML, reports can be filtered to focus on specific items.
The new Traffic Priority Tracking feature uses passive analysis to perform priority traffic analysis. Company officials said that based on preset rules or rules set by the user, the Traffic Priority Tracking feature automatically tracks protocols and nodes, to determine traffic priority.
Additional features include the Device Editor that enables users to manually edit devices types and add comments to network maps created in Microsoft Office Visio. Company officials said that the Codima Toolbox uses the network maps to translate raw IP addresses into system names, directly displaying the identity of any IT asset visually.
Friend said that the Codima architecture is built from the ground up, so there is no need to integrate with other software technologies. "This enables us to rapidly respond to market demands and provide IT teams with advanced integrated network technology that is highly automated thus easy to use."
The new release is designed to improve usability and deliver information required to reduce problem resolution time, to save valuable time, said Christer Mattsson (News - Alert), CEO at Codima.
