Monitoring of Windows Servers and Workstations using SNMP Helper

PORTLAND, Ore, and FUERTH, Germany – November 28, 2006Paessler AG, the network monitoring company, today announced that SNMP Helper together with PRTG Traffic Grapher and IPCheck Server Monitor enable network administrators to selectively collect detailed information from Microsoft SQL, ISA, Biztalk, and Exchange Server Systems.

Monitoring several thousand system parameters is easily accomplished by configuring the software with just a few mouse clicks. Immediately after installation, the system administrator begins to receive significant values such as "write accesses/second", "DHCP Server requests/second", "Exchange Server messages/second", "SQL Server requests/second" and many more.

"SNMP Helper gives an IT administrator the power to essentially watch thousands of details on their system at one time," said Dirk Paessler, CEO of Paessler AG. "Time saved by using software to automate monitoring tasks can be put to good use in other areas of support, planning and development."

SNMP Helper’s performance counters have been integrated into both Paessler PRTG Traffic Grapher and IPCheck Server Monitor tools and are created with simple mouse clicks.

PRTG Traffic Grapher monitors and analyzes the data stream in networks and provides exact figures on network traffic and utilization trends. The results are shown in individual and easily understandable reports. IPCheck Server Monitor monitors active network components, servers, or applications and provides instant alerts if problems occur.

The Pro Edition of SNMP Helper offers the ability to monitor over 2000 counters for Windows 2000, XP, and 2003. With the optional SNMP Helper Extensions, administrators can also monitor hundreds of performance counters of Microsoft Exchange Server, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Biztalk Server, Microsoft ISA Server

The fully functional freeware version of SNMP Helper supports monitoring of 80 performance counters for memory, disks, network, and processors, and comes included with the free download of PRTG Traffic Grapher or IPCheck Server Monitor. The Pro Edition is available for US $99.95. Optional Extensions are available for in-depth monitoring of MS Exchange Server, MS ISA Server, MS SQL Server and MS Biztalk Server for US $99.95 each.
