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.
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.

We haven’t been updating our Total Network Inventory 3 user manual for a long time, now it’s time to fix this.
First of all, a new section dedicated to the professional version of TNI has been added. It describes how to operate the software and license management modules.
The new section consists of four parts:
We admit that software accounting and license management isn’t the most trivial task for a corporate network. However, our team has tried to make the interface simple and friendly. We believe that our new user manual section will help you to catch up with all the nuances and reveal every feature of Total Network Inventory even faster.
TNI updates regularly, so we have not missed any single feature that was added recently. All of them have also taken their rightful place in our new user manual:
And of course, we haven’t forgotten our FAQ section. Now it is completely updated and supplemented, so finding information you need became even easier!
It was painstaking, a little boring, but very necessary part of work. At the same time TNI development doesn’t stand still. Soon we are going to please you with some new features: scanning network assets via Telnet, … anyway, we’ll tell you very soon.
Until next time!
