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:

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!
