Paessler AG, a provider of network monitoring solutions, announced the availability of version 9.2 of its PRTG Network Monitor software.

The new version includes more than 400 improvements.

PRTG 9.2 now supports VMware 5, which addresses ESX 5, Virtual Center 5, and even viewing VMs which are located in vApps. Another important enhancement is its rewritten Mobile Web GUI based on jQuery Mobile 1.0, which supports a variety of mobile devices and permits PRTG's web interface to be viewed on virtually any mobile web browser. Among the supported platforms are iOS 3.2+, Android 2.1+/Honeycomb, BlackBerry 6+, Windows Phone 7+, WebOS 1.4+, Meego, Kindle 3+, Firefox Mobile, and Opera Mobile 11+.

Version 9.2 also includes a WMI time sensor to measure the time difference between the system clock of a target device and the PRTG system, which can trigger an immediate alarm when detecting any inconsistencies. Correct time settings for all clients are important, for example, to ensure consistent storage of log files and other time-critical data, or for the correct functionality of scheduled tasks, etc. Another improvement makes the measurement of web page loading times more reliable and quick to set up: The rewritten "HTTP Full Web Page Sensor" can now use the Open Source "WebKit" engine and allows loading time monitoring without the need to have Internet Explorer installed.

PRTG 9.2's AJAX Web GUI enhancements include new navigatable "breadcrumbs," which save the user time by navigating through the device tree even quicker, as well as an easier, rewritten sensor selection that is shown when creating reports. Nested groups for libraries let the user create custom tree views even more flexible, and extended management tab functionalities allow multi-edit of object settings in a very fast and intuitive manner.
