ManageEngine, a provider of network, systems, applications, and security management software solutions, announced the availability of the ninth generation of OpManager, its flagship network monitoring software.

Optimized for large networked enterprises, OpManager now delivers an enhanced user interface and new features ranging from IT workflow automation, advanced virtualization monitoring, and REST APIs to custom script monitoring, and more. A fully-functional version of OpManager 9.0 can be

"OpManager 9.0 offers a compelling alternative to legacy tools from HP, CA and IBM," said Dev Anand, Product Manager of ManageEngine OpManager. "The probes have been built for high availability, and a single console can monitor as many as 50,000 interfaces. APIs make it easy for IT organizations to integrate OpManager into their existing environments, and the new custom script monitors enable administrators to support their organizations in the ways they are already used to if they're familiar with HP OpenView and other large platforms."

Version 9.0 of OpManager includes:

* An enterprise-grade, distributed architecture that can monitor more than 50,000 interfaces or 5,000 servers through a single management console.

* An IT workflow engine with an intuitive drag-and-drop GUI and out-of-the-box support for actions, checks and scheduling to help administrators resolve issues faster and with reduced MTTR (Mean Time To Resolve).

* Support for Microsoft Hyper-V, with more than 70 deep metrics on the availability and performance of Hyper-V hosts and guests. This extends virtualized environment monitoring to include environments from VMware and Microsoft.

* APIs that facilitate integration with existing help desk and IT management solutions.

* The ability to convert standalone OpManager instances into remote monitoring probes for improved scalability in large enterprises.

* The ability to go beyond SNMP or WMI protocols, enabling administrators to use their own network monitoring scripts within the console. Supported scripts include PowerShell, Linux shell script, VBScript, JavaScript, CScript, Perl and Python.

* Remote monitoring probes that can return real-time information to a central server, enabling an organization to monitor the health of its broadly distributed network from a central location.
