Dartware has updated InterMapper (http://www.intermapper.com/), Mac OS X compatible network monitoring software, to version 5.2.7. It’s a maintenance update with some bug fixes.

The probes test Apple’s Xserve, Xserve RAID, and Mac OS X Server component services including Web, FTP, AFP, NAT, Print, and QTSS. Debian builds are now built against libstdc++6 instead of libstdc++5; all currently supported Debian/Ubuntu releases ship with libstdc++6 by default. (78819, 78875)

The update also adds a Cisco IP SLA probe, an authentication server component that supports Kerberos, LDAP, RADIUS, ActiveDirectory, and IAS directories, new probes for Motorola PTP400 and PTP600 wireless equipment, VLAN ID information for the Cisco or 802.1Q Bridge MIB, and more.

InterMapper is a cross-platform network monitoring and alerting application. It can monitor the operational health of a Xserve, including the server version, RAM and OS Version, hard drive capacity, power supply statistics, network traffic, ambient temperature of the server, and state of the blowers and security lock.

InterMapper uses SNMP to monitor the network infrastructure, and has probes for monitoring many kinds of servers, including web, mail, LDAP, FTP, etc. More information and a free 14-day demo are available at the product Web site. Pricing starts at US$495.
