    tunnels found within a user-defined subnet range during auto-discovery.

    environments and acquire data immediately.
--  Self-service application traffic monitoring -- Klir Analytics now
    enable IT professionals to better identify and manage traffic sampling data

    click interface.

    leverage a newly released API to build a custom log in to Klir Analytics

    distributors can provide a custom log in from any web page, retaining
    control of the look, feel and experience of the customer.

"The 2.10 release underscores our commitment to deliver IT professionals a high value product with enterprise level functionality, combined with ease of use and low cost of entry. Transparency of data is evident to stakeholders, providing a clear direction with respect to IT infrastructure trends, improvements and resource allocation."

    uptime and optimization.

    potential problems in a proactive manner.
