TNM 2.3.0: Map background and other improvements

Greetings, friends. As we promised, the long-awaited update for Total Network Monitor 2 has finally arrived. Many elements of the program received our attention. It’s now possible to load custom images as network map backgrounds, and the program has become more stable when working with a large number of monitors. The Activity diagram gained a time filter, and there’s other minor improvements. Let’s not hesitate and examine the full list:

  • NewAbility to set a background image for the network map.
  • NewStoring Activity diagram records.
  • NewAbility to filter Activity diagram records by time.
  • NewNew parameter in email options: Security.
  • ImprovedRestrictions on group contents were removed (groups can now contain both devices and other groups).
  • ImprovedAll check results and links to online resources were localized.
  • ImprovedSignificantly reduced interface response time in projects with a large number of monitors.
  • ImprovedEngines responsible for selecting, copying and display of monitors were streamlined.
  • FixedVarious errors when deleting monitors.
  • FixedProgram crash when opening or creating projects.
  • Many other fixes and improvements.

 

First off, let’s take a look at the feature many of you have been asking for: the ability to upload any background image in Map view. Add a world map, a floor plan, or just a picture with cute kittens – the map will become more functional or just pleasing to the eye. The images can be JPEG, PNG or BMP format. When the image loads, select the appropriate scale using the slider, and the background is done.

The Activity diagram was slightly updated. Entries in the chart can now be filtered by the time interval that interests you. It’s possible to narrow it down to the 3 last days, last week, last month, or 3 months.

Last but not least, major strides were made in optimizing performance on huge projects. Whether you have 5 or 500 monitors for each device, it won’t matter much. The program will now be able to cope with even that much load!

That is all for this update. Today we can with all confidence say that Total Network Monitor has never been better!

TNM 2.2.0: TLS encryption support

Good news, everyone! Finally, we’re ready to unveil a long-awaited update for Total Network Monitor 2. We’ve addressed several stability issues and implemented 2 of the most requested features. Let’s see the complete list of changes:

  • BIG FEATURESupport of encrypted connections for SMTP and XMPP protocols.
  • NewAn option to automatically backup the project file.
  • NewNew interface language (Chinese: Simplified and Traditional).
  • ImprovedActivity diagram is now scrollable.
  • ImprovedOptimized performance when working with large projects.
  • FixedDuplication of log file contents.
  • FixedErrors in the interface, as well as in operation of a number of sensors and actions.
  • FixedOperation as a service in Windows XP.

 

The most requested feature of all has long been the ability to send email alerts through mail servers that require SSL/TLS-encrypted connection and a username and password for authorization.

We’ve optimized the interface: now, TNM will be able to deal with many more monitors and devices than before.
And, to limit the possibility of losing important data should something nasty happen to your project, you can now enable automatic backup of your project file at set intervals.

Furthermore, a small but much requested addition – a scroll-bar – was added to the Activity diagram for individual monitors. Now you can see much further into the past than before.

We thank you for your attention.
Safe networking!
