Features & Benefits


Maintenance Mode
Schedule and manage maintenance windows across your monitoring environment to suppress alarms when you know a device is down. Create multiple windows, schedule reoccurring events, and quickly handle ad-hoc situations.  We are excited to introduce this new capability as this was the top customer requested feature within our Customer Support “Ideas” system.


HTML5 Custom Dashboards
A new, fresh implementation of the popular Dashboard Designer, created in HTML5 for broad browser compatibility without plugins. It’s fast and robust to simplify dashboard creation and streamline implementation. Another top feature our customers requested.


Dynamic Thresholds
Provides flexibility to limit alarms to just those that matter most. In addition to static thresholds, customers can now set thresholds based on a percent over a calculated baseline or by standard deviations from this baseline. This was designed to help our customers focus on alarms/performance issues that are real problems and reduce those that aren’t.


VMWare views

Enhanced support for monitoring of mission-critical vSphere environments.   Informative summary views of vCenter, ESX Hosts and VM’s with easy drill down capabilities to navigate hierarchical relationships.  Additional support for detailed monitoring of vCenter servers; ESX hosts and their associated resource pools and data stores; VM health and resource consumption.
