Greetings, friends! Today, we bring you another update of Total Network Monitor 2. We’ve implemented the long-awaited functionality to quickly move devices between groups and an easy way to copy monitors in the main window. Additionally, we’ve added the ability to check the contents of HTTPS resources and fixed some other flaws present in the previous versions. Let’s look at the list of changes:
- BIG FEATUREAbility to Drag & Drop monitors and devices.
- NewCopying monitors using Drag & Drop, including copying into device groups.
- NewMoving devices between groups using Drag & Drop.
- NewAltering the structure of groups using Drag & Drop.
- NewCutting, copying and pasting monitors via the context menu.
- NewMenu option to run Total Software Deployment.
- NewSupport for HTTPS links in HTTP sensor.
- ImprovedDevice information refresh in the Network tree.
- Improved“Show message” action.
- ImprovedRunning TNM as a service.
- ImprovedRendering of the monitor list and of the Network tree when refreshing.
- ImprovedNew program icon and new graphics in the installer.
- ImprovedNew image in exported HTML logs.
- Fixed“Insert macro” button when setting up an action.
- FixedCounter errors on stopped monitors.
- FixedCrash when removing black monitors for most Internet sensor types.
- FixedEncoding for the “Send email” action.
- FixedSeveral option items.
- FixedCrash when working with a large number of monitors.
Not too long ago, when Total Network Monitor 2 was still at the stage of open beta testing and you sent in feedback to help us improve the functionality and usability of the program, the one request we received most often was for Drag & Drop functionality, which has now been implemented! The Project Editor is no longer needed: now it’s all quick and intuitive. Copying monitors and moving devices between groups in the Network tree is done using Drag & Drop, while moving monitors is available from the context menu. It’s easy! Update the program and try it out for yourself.
We hope you enjoyed the news. See you soon!
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.
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 . If you actively participated in the beta testing program but haven’t received your license within a week, please drop us an email.
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.
And that’s not all! The release version of TNM 2 shouldn’t take long. Now we offer you early access to the new version and a chance to take part in its beta testing.
