What's New in InterMapper 5.6?
The release of InterMapper 5.6 features numerous enhancements requested by customers to our industry leading network monitoring and mapping solution. Taken as a whole, the new capabilities make the InterMapper network monitoring tool smarter, more reliable and easier to use:
Web server identification
InterMapper can now identify HTTP servers during auto-discovery, and automatically creates probe groups to monitor them.
InterMapper now uses the ARP table to find additional devices during auto-discovery, broadening its view of the network.
We’ve modernized many aspects of the user interface, and are continuing to consolidate menu items and improve usability.
- The Info Window has expanded and now allows you to adjust every setting for a device from one place.
- InterMapper greets new users with a Welcome window to help them get started more quickly.
InterMapper Reports now works on the iPad and other modern web-capable mobile devices.
- Datasets are better organized, and user-created datasets are now labeled with their probe and variable.
- Many improvements to charts, including a cleaner visual design, smarter axis scaling and value selection, and a legend.
- Across-the-board improvements to load times, interface responsiveness, and overall performance.
- Units of measurement are now shown throughout Reports, for datasets that specify them.
- The Adobe Flash plug-in is no longer required to display charts.
InterMapper 5.6 provides additional tools to manage how data is exported to the database.
- The probe <autorecord> section is deprecated in favor of a new <datasets> section, which can be used for any dataset.
- The new <datasets> section gives probe authors the ability to specify the units in which the data will be shown.
- Added probe, variable and units columns to the dataset table, making it easier to write SQL queries against user-created datasets.
- The information on the database overview page has been condensed into a more useful form.
New fields in labels, notifiers and status windows
