NEW YORK -- AdRem Software, provider of network management solutions, announced a major upgrade to its NetCrunch solution for the agentless monitoring of heterogeneous networks. NetCrunch 4 is designed to ensure high-level network/systems performance and availability across major network platforms (Windows, Linux/Unix and NetWare) and SNMP v1,v2, and v3 devices.
NetCrunch 4 introduces several key performance enhancements that substantially extend the program's monitoring capacity. Central to the version 4 is the prioritized monitoring and advanced alert suppression (via node dependency) mechanism. As a result, NetCrunch efficiently uses available bandwidth and computing resources while monitoring more than a few hundred of nodes.
Other highlights of NetCrunch 4 include:
- Policy-based remote access (via a Web browser) to program objects and operations
- Support for the secure version 3 of the SNMP management standard
- Report customization capabilities
