Product to be Showcased at Cisco Live Event in London

LOS ANGELES and NUREMBERG, GERMANY - (Jan. 26, 2012) - Paessler AG, the innovative network monitoring solutions specialist, today announced the availability of version 9.2 of its PRTG Network Monitor software. Key enhancements include complete VMware 5 support and a full rewrite of the solution's Mobile Web GUI, which is now optimized for browsers on all common mobile operating systems. Also new are several improved sensors,  including a chromium-based full Web page sensor that improves website loading time measurements, and additional AJAX Web GUI features and improvements. 

The new version, which Paessler will showcase later this month at Cisco Live in London (January 30-February 3), includes more than 400 improvements. Significantly, PRTG 9.2 now supports VMware 5, which addresses ESX 5, Virtual Center 5, and even viewing VMs which are located in vApps. Another important enhancement is its rewritten Mobile Web GUI based on jQuery Mobile 1.0, which supports a variety of mobile devices and permits PRTG's web interface to be viewed on virtually any mobile web browser. Among the supported platforms are iOS 3.2+, Android 2.1+/Honeycomb, BlackBerry 6+, Windows Phone 7+, WebOS 1.4+, Meego, Kindle 3+, Firefox Mobile, and Opera Mobile 11+. 

"Virtualization has been a continious trend in 2011/2012, and we're seeing more and more of our customers who already use PRTG to monitor their virtual environments upgrading to vSphere 5," said Dirk Paessler, founder and CEO at Paessler. "They want the ability to include these systems in their monitoring to ensure system operability, and PRTG simply grows with their demands."

Paessler continued, "At the same time, the use of smart phones continues to grow at a rapid rate and our customers desire the ability to monitor their network while on the go.  They need to have the capability of monitoring their network's health any time, and to react much faster to any monitoring alarms. Full VMware 5 support and PRTG Version 9.2's new Mobile Web GUI meet these requirements and further fortify our aim to offer our customers a comprehensive, very powerful, yet easy-to-use network monitoring solution."

Version 9.2 also includes a WMI time sensor to measure the time difference between the system clock of a target device and the PRTG system, which can trigger an immeditate alarm when detecting any inconsistencies. Correct time settings for all clients are important, for example, to ensure consistent storage of log files and other time-critical data, or for the correct functionality of scheduled tasks, etc. Another improvement makes the measurement of web page loading times more reliable and quick to set up: The rewritten "HTTP Full Web Page Sensor" can now use the Open Source "WebKit" engine and allows loading time monitoring without the need to have Internet Explorer installed.

PRTG 9.2's AJAX Web GUI enhancements include new navigatable "breadcrumbs," which save the user time by navigating through the device tree even quicker, as well as an easier, rewritten sensor selection that is shown when creating reports. Nested groups for libraries let the user create custom tree views even more flexible, and extended management tab functionalities allow multi-edit of object settings in a very fast and intuitive manner.
