Paessler AG announced the availability of its latest update to PRTG Network Monitor.

The new version introduces a new Single Page Application (SPA) architecture based on HTML5 for a faster web experience, allowing network administrators to view and digest more information on a single page.

Through the use of HTML5, PRTG Network Monitor offers an improved user interface. Data presentation is cleaner and easier to understand, with more overall functionality and fewer clicks needed. The improved design allows both the sensor and device pages to offer more information at a single glance.

To further improve workflow for network administrators, tasks now take place in pop-up layers within the browser instead of loading new pages, enabling network administrators to easily focus on the task at hand. Users can change the priority and favourite status of objects with just one click.

The updated version, now using pure AJAX, reloading and reparsing of CSS (Cascading Style Sheets), HTML and JavaScript have been reduced. PTRG's new web interface will rarely load complete pages; instead, page elements will only refresh when necessary.

"Administrators are busier than ever - which means their critical applications must provide information quickly and intuitively. We believe the new version of PRTG Network Monitor will satisfy our users' most demanding requirements," said Dirk Paessler, founder and CEO at Paessler AG. "The power, speed, clarity and utility of our new updated version will allow administrators to stay on top of every aspect of system performance."

Also included in the update is a new heuristic calculation, which identifies sensors that show similar behaviour helping the user find interconnections in the network. For example, port X on router A has similar bandwidth consumption compared to port Y on server B but the admin wasn't aware of a connection at all. This knowledge can lead to better planning of network resources and help the network administrator to detect unexpected influences and interactions between systems, which could be the result of security leaks.

Paessler's new release is now available to all PRTG Network Monitor customers with a valid maintenance contract.
