Introducing the most up-to-date tool for troubleshooting and network performance optimization

Nuremberg, July 16, 2008 – Paessler AG, a world leader in network monitoring tools, today announced the availability of the latest version of Paessler Router Traffic Grapher, PRTG Network Monitor version 7. The new solution provides systems administrators and IT managers with an easy, cost effective way to ensure network availability. Using PRTG’s comprehensive monitoring and analysis tools, network administrators can reduce costs and save valuable time by avoiding outages, optimizing connection performance and controlling service level agreements.

Network administrators need a streamlined approach to monitoring that will enable them to better plan, prevent issues and improve system performance,” said Dirk Paessler, founder and CEO of Paessler AG. “We’ve combined the powerful features included in IPCheck Server Monitor and PRTG Traffic Grapher into one solution, to deliver comprehensive network monitoring in an elegantly simple interface.”

The newly architected software includes enhanced features to automate network monitoring and reporting tasks and leverage best practices for configuration and analysis. For example, the new Auto-Pilot feature constantly scans networks segments for new devices, automatically determines types of devices and configures appropriate set of sensors for those devices, saving time and resources for administrators responsible for large networks. Pre-configured device templates provide recommended alarm and warning limits for many standard devices to help administrators save time and reduce configuration errors.

Recent polling at Gartner’s latest Data Center Conference indicates that longstanding pressure exists to troubleshoot network faults faster and prevent network performance problems.

Using Paessler network monitoring software, network managers can quickly identify unusual traffic or usage patterns and gain valuable insight to affect changes that reduce server and bandwidth bottlenecks and identify which applications or servers strain bandwidth.

This insight also allows IT to strategically plan infrastructure upgrades, deliver better service to both external and internal customers, and reduce network costs by matching expenditures with actual bandwidth needs.

With this version, Paessler now also provides extended support for more than 30 sensor types for monitoring servers, analyzing network traffic and surveying the behaviors of users in the network.

Paessler Network Monitoring solutions can be purchased through the Paessler online store at starting at Euro 195.-. Freeware and Free Trial versions of all products are also available at
