Allows users to report any deviations from predefined monitoring parameters
Paessler has launched a new iPhone application iPRTG, designed for network administrators who already use, or plan to use PRTG Network Monitor. It enables administrators to view the monitored environment and to actively manage the monitoring any time, from anywhere.
The company said that, relevant data is acquired directly from the central PRTG server and are displayed in a format developed for the iPhone. It allows network administrators to check the status of server availability and if necessary, take action to avoid the negative economic impact of system downtime, even when travelling.
The new iPRTG also provides access to data about bandwidth and network usage, enabling administrators to make changes on the basis of these data to improve the performance and efficiency of the network. It continuously monitors the network and reports any deviations from predefined monitoring parameters. It also allows the iPhone to request all necessary monitoring data directly from the PRTG server.
Dirk Paessler, CEO of Paessler, said: “iPRTG will allow them to stay informed about the health of the network, diagnose issues and take the appropriate action from anywhere in the world, improving efficiency and response time to network events.
“Now you can have an entire network snapshot right in the palm of your hand. It’s an incredibly powerful tool that can save a tremendous amount of time and money, especially in small organisations with small IT staffs. And the best thing: iPRTG was developed using PRTG’s open API, which has already been used by thousands of independent software developers worldwide.”
