SolarWinds introduces new network monitoring tool


SolarWinds, launched a new tool Network Performance Monitor 12, featuring NetPath and Network Insight.

The company said these features give network administrators the hybrid IT visual insights and analysis needed for visibility into the performance of services across the networks they own and those of their service providers and cloud vendors.

According to recent SolarWinds IT Trends Report, 87 percent of organizations have migrated some infrastructure to the cloud, yet 60 percent state they will likely never transition all services offsite, making hybrid IT the reality for the foreseeable future.

According to the company, in such complex hybrid IT environments, network administrators need the ability to view the performance details of and pinpoint bottlenecks on all the networks connecting critical services and applications, whether they be on-premises or in the cloud.

The addition of NetPath makes SolarWinds NPM 12 the only network monitoring software that visually maps hybrid network paths alongside on-premises data.

At the same time, Network Insight provides depth by monitoring load balancing environments.

“With NetPath and Network Insight, SolarWinds NPM 12 is delivering the dynamic visibility and actionable insights IT professionals need to effectively manage all the networks impacting the applications their organizations rely on in a hybrid IT world — every node, every path, every network,” said Christoph Pfister, executive vice president of products, SolarWinds.
