Surprised that your enterprise network spending is slowly outpacing IT spending? Don’t be. As networks grow in complexity, monitoring performance across the entire network, optimizing efficiency and improving visibility have all become so important that network management software is a “must-have” for all organizations.
But is there a single tool that serves all the needs of network admins? AdRem Software (News - Alert) is quick to offer its “network panacea” – NetCrunch 7 – an easy to deploy, agent-less network monitoring and mapping software for medium-sized businesses and organizations.
It allows IT departments to graphically represent network infrastructure, address problems in real time and perform capacity planning, optimizing performance and fault management of multi-platform TCP/IP networks.
With NetCrunch, practically any SNMP-enabled device that is on the market can be monitored.
Reportedly the only solution currently available that can integrate the broad range of features network admins need to monitor and troubleshoot their network, NetCrunch 7 allows businesses to better control and maintain their IT networks by centralizing and automating all activities of an organization’s network assets.
NetCrunch 7 doesn’t need to be manually configured for different devices or servers, as it recognizes what is present in the network and the type of device being used, and automatically enables monitoring and alerting rules specific to that device.
Tomasz Kunicki, founder and CEO at AdRem Software, attributes this to the number of predefined monitoring packs that are included in the software. The MIB Compiler included in the software lets admins add any MIB to the predefined database of almost three thousand MIBs that are already included in NetCrunch.
NetCrunch runs on Windows Server and is licensed per number of monitored nodes. With the new NetCrunch Open Monitor, any external data can be fed to NetCrunch for the complete overview and monitoring of all key elements in the network.
In the highly fragmented network management and monitoring market, where different players perform different network tasks for network managers, does the all-in-one NetCrunch 7 have an edge?
