PLEASANTON, Calif. — June 11, 2012 - ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, today announced that attendees of Cisco Live will be the first to preview the newest version of its flagship network monitoring software (NMS), OpManager. Launched in 2011 to deliver an easier, more affordable NMS option for enterprises, the award-winning OpManager 9 adds new features and functionality, including agent-based log file monitoring, discovery rule engine, faster discovery, IPAM plug-in, tab customization and more.

Get a sneak peek of OpManager 9.2 before its official Q3 launch by visiting ManageEngine’s booth #518 at Cisco Live in San Diego, California, June 10-14, 2012, or at http://www.manageengine.com/network-monitoring/beta-signup.html.

Enterprise IT organizations need solutions that can be quickly deployed to production, as well as cover every aspect of IT without requiring multiple tools or expensive frameworks. OpManager makes this a reality by adding features like faster discovery, now five times faster than before so that you can discover up to 5,000 interfaces per minute. The new discovery rule engine reduces the time to deployment and brings in a new agent approach to IT, enabling in-depth and critical monitoring, such as log file monitoring of critical apps. It also adds an IP Address Manager as a plug-in, in addition to the existing NetFlow and Network Configuration Management plug-ins.

"In the past, high R&D intensive features, such as agent-based log file monitoring or word-class discovery, were only available in expensive frameworks," said Dev Anand, Director of Product Management, NPM division, ManageEngine. "At ManageEngine, our goal is to bring these features to all enterprises irrespective of the business size and nature. We are thrilled to demo all the exciting changes to OpManager at Cisco Live, an event that promises to bring together the industry elite once again this year."

OpManager is a complete, end-to-end network and IT infrastructure monitoring platform that offers advanced fault and performance management across WAN, VoIP call paths, network devices, servers, applications, databases and other IT infrastructure such as printers and UPS. OpManager features a single-pane-of-glass console for the entire network and IT infrastructure, ensuring continuous and proactive management. And unlike expensive solutions such as HP OpenView and CA Unicenter, OpManager provides a comparable, extensive feature set at an affordable price - 90 percent of the functionality at 10 percent of the cost — to meet the needs of small, medium and enterprise companies alike.

Enterprise Network Management Enhancements

The latest version of OpManager introduces advanced functionality that facilitates effortless and effective enterprise network management. The Q3 release of OpManager version 9.2 includes:

  • Agent-based Log File Monitoring: Track the existence of a particular string (string or a regular expression) in any log file. Previously a part of luxury high-end NMS frameworks and now made available to SMBs and large enterprises.
  • Discovery Rule Engine: Associate the relevant monitors based on the type and nature of devices. For example, you can associate all IIS devices to IIS business view automatically and add IIS related processes and services automatically.
  • 5x Faster Discovery: Discover up to 5,000 interfaces per minute using the new improved discovery engine.
  • Tab Customization: Technicians can now drag and drop or delete the default OpManager tabs and can also bring in web consoles of other network devices and applications as custom tabs. For example, add helpdesk as a tab in OpManager and embed the organization’s helpdesk web pages right into OpManager without needing to open multiple browsers.
  • IPAM Plug-in: Gives administrators the power to manage their network, IP space, and switch port to devices from a single point.
  • Integration with other NMS: Forward OpManager events as SNMP TRAP/Syslog events to another NMS Platform viz. HP OpenView, IBM Netcool.

Pricing and Availability

The general availability (GA) of version 9.2 will be released during Q3 2012. The beta builds for trial run are already available at http://www.manageengine.com/network-monitoring/beta-signup.html. The pricing information will be announced during the GA availability.
