Heroix to Demonstrate Agentless Performance Monitoring and Reporting at LinuxWorld 2005

Newly Introduced Heroix Longitude Provides Linux, Unix, Windows Monitoring Depth With Quick ROI

NEWTON, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 1, 2005 -- Heroix, a leading provider of application performance management software, today announced its participation in LinuxWorld Expo, August 9-11, 2005, at the Moscone Center, San Francisco, CA. Heroix personnel at booth #350 will demonstrate the company's recently released Heroix Longitude, a new agentless monitoring and reporting product that is easy to deploy and use, yet provides comprehensive monitoring and detailed reporting capabilities. Longitude is designed to help organizations optimize the availability and performance of applications and systems without having to install software on the monitored computers.

Longitude provides true multiplatform support for Linux, Unix and Windows, with no preferred platform. "Unlike many monitoring products that have added Linux support as an afterthought, Longitude was designed from a clean sheet of paper to utilize all of the latest standards and technologies, and is just as robust on Linux as it is on Unix or Windows," said Howard Reisman, Heroix founder and CEO. "In addition, Longitude delivers the kind of deep monitoring that historically required the installation of agent software; customers can enjoy enterprise class monitoring more affordably and with dramatically reduced deployment times."

Longitude collects over 250 critical operational metrics for RED HAT® Linux, SuSE® Linux, Microsoft® Windows Server™ 2000/2003, Microsoft Windows® XP, Sun Solaris™, Hewlett-Packard HP-UX®, IBM AIX®, Apache™ Web Server, Microsoft IIS, Oracle®, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Exchange Server 2000/2003, IBM WebSphere®, BEA WebLogic®, and JBoss®. Over 125 prepackaged reports presented via an intuitive dashboard allow users to quickly and easily assess the "big picture" of historical performance problems, and then drill down to view problem details. Longitude requires little to no configuration and can be up and running in the production environment within 15 minutes.
