Dartware and Plixer Announce InterMapper/Scrutinizer Integration

Network Monitoring Data Now Available Alongside NetFlow Analysis

HANOVER, NH -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 28, 2006 -- A new integration between InterMapper network mapping and monitoring from Dartware and Scrutinizer NetFlow and SFlow analyzer from Plixer, allows network traffic slowdowns to be spotted early and traced to their points of origin. InterMapper presents real-time data on device and connection location, operational status, and diagnostic data while Scrutinizer returns traffic flow analysis details and trends.

"Together, InterMapper and Scrutinizer give network managers all the data they need to tune devices and connections and maintain uptime," explains Rich Brown, Dartware CEO. "InterMapper points out traffic slowdowns or underperforming devices way before end-users start complaining. Scrutinizer shows you exactly where traffic increases are originating."

The integration was engineered at Plixer. According to Mike Patterson, Plixer CEO, "Scrutinizer tells you who or what is causing traffic increases, the application and protocol that is being used, the timeframe of the problem, and the network connection that is affected. InterMapper locates and describes the devices and connections that are involved. It's a powerful combination."

The InterMapper/Scrutinizer integration is currently available. Products are licensed separately. Both Dartware and Plixer offer "five for free" licensing, allowing network managers to experience benefits before expanding their installations. For more information, visit or
