SAO PAULO and PLEASANTON, Calif. - April 7, 2015 - ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, today launched the beta version of OpManager version 12. Available immediately, the beta release brings NetFlow monitoring and configuration management functionality to OpManager. The new add-ons help network admins at large enterprises and data centers analyze their traffic and manage network configurations for changes in addition to performance monitoring.

ManageEngine is demonstrating NetFlow monitoring and configuration management in OpManager in booth 515 at the Gartner IT Infrastructure, Operations & Data Center Summit, being held April 7-8, 2015, at the Sheraton Sao Paulo WTC Hotel in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

"Today, network issues extend beyond health and performance to application-specific traffic problems and DDoS-type attacks," said Dev Anand, director of product management at ManageEngine. "Troubleshooting such issues requires capabilities such as real-time network traffic analysis and rapid configuration change detection in addition to the regular network monitoring capabilities. That's what we have done with OpManager by making NetFlow monitoring and configuration management into a single integrated product."

NetFlow monitoring and configuration management were earlier available as downloadable plug-ins to OpManager in previous versions. However, with this new version, customers don?t have to install the plug-ins separately. It comes pre-bundled with OpManager v12. This not only saves time but also provides much-needed correlation between the monitoring data and the traffic and configuration data.

For example, the new OpManager add-ons let a retailer with hundreds of stores nationwide create a map of all stores and display the application traffic on the links between each store and the ERP running at the data center. Deterioration in link quality could affect billing at the given store, resulting in loss of revenue; but typical, legacy network monitoring tools treat those links as one big pipe and alert on overall traffic problems. However, overall link volume may be fine, but the application traffic is not being adequately prioritized and packets get queued. OpManager v12 can prevent revenue loss by identifying deterioration on specific application traffic or specific DSCP QoS code traffic.

Pricing and Availability

The new NetFlow monitoring and configuration management functions are available to use in the beta release of OpManager v12 and can be downloaded at https://www.manageengine.com/network-monitoring/integrated-network-management.html.

OpManager Large Enterprise Edition starts at $29,995 for 1,000 devices. When OpManager v12 moves out of beta, the NetFlow monitor add-on will start at $2,000 for 25 interfaces, and the configuration management add-on will start at $795 for 10 devices.
