InterMapper Turns Five with Version 3.5

Hanover, NH – 9 July 2001. Dartware, LLC announces the immediate
availability of InterMapper 3.5, the latest release of its network
monitoring and alerting program. InterMapper which enters its fifth year of
sales with over 1200 customers worldwide, started life as a product sold by
Dartmouth College. In April, 2000, Dartware spun out from the College and
began enhancing and marketing InterMapper.

InterMapper 3.5 monitors network web, mail, DNS, and other servers, routers
and other switching equipment. It also monitors LAN and WAN links to detect
troubles in the network and alert the network manager to the problems. It
quickly and easily creates maps of the network that serve as a
documentation and troubleshooting aid. The built-in web server also allows
a network manager to see the health of the network remotely using a
standard web browser.

A demonstration version of InterMapper 3.5 is available from:

Cisco CPU utilization and temperature; MGE UPS probe; temperature and
relative humidity via APC UPS environmental monitoring card; CVS

switch port numbers instead of subnets for less clutter.

* Built-in Users and Groups: InterMapper’s web server can allow or deny
access to web pages using the MacOS Users and Groups, or using its own
built-in users and groups facility for MacOS X and AppleShare IP servers.
