Total Network Monitor 2.0 is Finally Here!

Splash 3R

Today we have great news! After a long period of thorough beta-testing, we are officially releasing Total Network Monitor 2.0. This release becomes the first major update since 2010. We’ve given the product a complete overhaul, having developed a brand new monitoring engine from scratch, redesigned the user interface and re-written the documentation. Was it worth the wait? You tell us!

In this release, we changed the monitoring engine completely. The new engine is able to make better use of the multiple CPU cores, offering smoother performance on today’s multi-core CPU’s. We also optimized network load to ensure that monitoring does not affect your network operation in the slightest.

In addition to performance and stability optimizations, we built new monitoring features into the engine. The new engine can now work over the secure HTTPS protocol, supports UTF-8 Web pages, and is able to handle HTTP redirects the same way your Web browser does . We’ve also improved FTP monitoring, adding the ability to specify a custom FTP port to monitor. Finally, we’ve added the ability to perform checks on a certain file on a remote server to ensure the correct file server operation. If you have more than one system administrator on your network, you can now specify multiple email addresses for email alerts.

The redesigned user interface becomes prettier and more usable. Have a look at the screen shot:

We’ve added a graphical representation of your entire network, allowing you to glance over the status of your corporate LAN and determine immediately which node needs your attention.

Affordable Pricing

With this release, we slashed the prices. We are literally giving the product away! Even the standard price of $90 per license is a steal, considering that you’re getting a lifetime license with unlimited free updates and free technical support. We are offering volume discounts to our corporate customers; please contact us for more detail.

Who Can Get Total Network Monitor 2.0 for Free

If you were part of our open beta testing and actively participated in the program by submitting bug reports or feature suggestions, thank you! In return for your hard work and valuable contributions, we’d like to offer you a free license worth $90. We’ll send out the free licenses next week .

Meet Total Software Deployment: the new Tool for Network Administrators!

The System Administrator Appreciation Day 2015 may be over, but we’re not yet done with surprises: meet your new assistant! Softinventive Lab is happy to announce Total Software Deployment, a perfect deployment tool for your entire network. We already had a software inventory management tool. Today, we complement that tool with another one – to help you deploy software to remote computers.

Total Software Deployment

Why We Made Total Software Deployment

Why yet another remote deployment tool? Aren’t Microsoft guys good enough building the MSI deployment tool for Windows? We love Microsoft Windows, especially the latest Windows 10, but its remote deployment system is sorely lacking. Restricted to MSI packages only, Microsoft’s deployment system just doesn’t work if you have legacy software to distribute. Our new remote deployment tool supports all types of installers including MSI as well as EXE files produced by all popular third-party installers. System administrators rejoice! You can now deploy and maintain those products easily in a fully automated, discreet manner without distracting your users.

A Tool for a Lazy Sysadmin

No, we don’t call you “lazy”. In fact, we think you work hard enough to deserve a little break. Total Software Deployment will help you automate remote software distribution by building a custom deployment script – no matter what type of installer the product may use. Create a deployment package, test it out and click “Launch” to automatically deploy the new product to your entire network.

Have multiple packages to deploy? Total Software Deployment will save even more time by enabling concurrent deployment of multiple packages to multiple computers at the same time.

Convenient Maintenance

Deploying a package is not everything. Once a product is successfully installed, you’ll need to make sure it gets all the fixes, updates and security patches promptly. Total Software Deployment helps you keep your computers up to date by automatically scanning your network computers and building software inventory lists. You’ll see exactly which software is installed on each computer, discovering outdated installations at a glance and having the possibility to install the latest updates.

We’ve set the official page about the product features. If you have any questions or need more information, please feel free to ask on our support page.

Total Network Monitor 2.0 вeta!

Splash

As you know, the development of Total Network Monitor was suspended back in 2010. Over the years, the software has received a lot of positive feedback from you, but it still contained some known bugs that kept reminding of themselves.

We hope you enjoy this news, because we’ve found time to breathe new life into the project.

Main_window

Just look at this changelog, which is far from being exhaustive:

  • BIG FEATUREAll program elements have been updated and modified: engine, UI, documentation.
  • NewHTTP sensor: UTF-8 support added for page content check.
  • NewHTTP sensor: Pages availability check via HTTPS.
  • NewHTTP sensor: Web servers redirection support. Now the sensor redirects in the same way as Internet browsers do.
  • NewFTP sensor: Ability to specify your own port number for an FTP server.
  • NewProtection from entering a random server port number for the TCP sensor.
  • NewAbility to add multiple addresses for the “send email” action.
  • NewAbility to check file availability on a remote server.
  • ImprovedICMP sensor mechanism. Now it has improved logic and allows you to specify timeout in milliseconds.
  • ImprovedOverall stability of the application (several critical errors that caused application to crash fixed).
  • FixedError caused by checking inaccessible files (e.g. pagefile.sys) for several FILE sensors (file existence, file size, file compare).
  • FixedICMP sensor logic (if at least one packet has passed, the monitor will turn green).
  • FixedWindows sensor: Event log error. Now the sensor check behaves correctly when a large number of events is added.
  • FixedInterface error while changing (adding) an HTTP sensor.
  • FixedThe ICMP sensor now works correctly with IP addresses ending with 0 or 255, if the subnet mask defines them as being valid.
  • FixedCount number mismatch for monitors of a certain color (monitor list header).
  • FixedIncorrect behavior of TNM notification balloons in system tray.
  • FixedError when trying to launch TNI.
  • FixedFile format mismatch error in Project Editor.
