Jalasoft Releases New MP for HP LaserJet Printers

Today Jalasoft announced the release of its latest Management Pack for HP LaserJet Printers, as part of the Xian Network Manager  for System Center Operations Manager 2007. Jalasoft always endeavors to create MPs that suit our client’s specific monitoring needs. The new HP LaserJet SMP is an effective MP that allows users to constantly be informed on the overall status of their printers, thus being able to spot potential problems before they have a chance to escalate to more complex issues.

The HP LaserJet MP will allow you to check up on many aspects of your HP Printers, to make sure that no issues go undetected. Number of pages printed, toner status, storage, Supplies are only some of the monitored characteristics that this MP offers users.

Additionally, all other generic rules available for other Jalasoft SMPs are also present in the HP LaserJet MP. Therefore, as in any other Xian NM MP, you can still monitor traffic, port status, ICMP/SNMP availability, etc.

“Printers are used widely in companies and cause big problems for end users when they are failing. With this brand new MP, the IT staff can be ahead on problems and so preventing angry end users”, says Arnold Hagens, Jalasoft Product Marketing Manager.

Jalasoft Releases New MP for Cisco ASA

Today Jalasoft announced the release of its latest Management Pack for Cisco ASA, as part of the Xian Network Manager’s MPs for Operations Manager 2007. In constant strive towards customer satisfaction, we’ve developed a unique but powerful Management Pack. As is the case with our other MPs, the Cisco ASA MP includes all of the standard features found in Xian NM. Smart monitoring, automatic thresholding and advanced policy templates are some of the features that Xian NM users have become accustomed to and will find present in our newest MP.

Our brand new Cisco ASA MP has been designed from the ground up to provide useful and relevant monitoring data for network administrators. Besides a wide array of configurable rules, it also includes dynamic monitoring of Sessions and Tunnels. All the rules that a user would need to monitor the VPN and Firewall capabilities, will be present as out of the box rules in our latest Cisco ASA MP. In the unlikely event that the built in rules are not enough or do not cover specific aspects of your network that are significant to you, a user has the possibility of applying our “custom rules” feature to create monitoring rules that are tailor made to fit your specific monitoring needs.

We strive to give our customers the most potent and robust network monitoring tools available. “The Cisco ASA MP gives users a simple but powerful tool that will allow them to keep an eye on their VPN activities and Firewall status” says Arnold Hagens, Jalasoft Product Marketing Manager.

Jalasoft Releases its latest version of Xian NM Io R2 SP1

Service Pack 1 includes the following features:

  • Automatic Interface Selection (Disable Elements) – This feature has been added to prevent any unnecessary data from being sent to OpsMgr, which could in turn, affect its overall performance. With SP1, you can set up traffic rules that disable elements when the average traffic during a certain period is below a specified limit.
  • Multiple Connectors – This option allows users to connect with two Management Servers from a single NM server in order to increase the number of performance data points being sent to Ops Mgr.
  • Enhanced Topology Discovery – We have refined our discovery tool to prove more detail for Network Topology Maps. With Service Pack 1, scan tasks can be executed over multiple network ranges/segments, making the discovery process more accurate and allowing scans to better match the layout of your network.
  • New Top N reports – We have added a new set of reports that show the Top “N” objects based on Network Traffic, Packet Loss, Error Discards, Response Time and Interface Utilization over all monitored devices. Users can define the number of elements listed on the report and get a better view of what is happening at a specific point in time.
  • Cache Control – This feature has been added to improve communication efficiency between Network Manager and OpsMgr by controlling the amount of data cached on the Network Manager server. If necessary Xian NM can be configured to control the number of performance counters sent to OpsMgr at one time.
  • New Bandwidth Rule – An additional rule has been added to all SMP’s, which calculates Interface Traffic Usage as a percentage of the maximum bandwidth.

Along with many other enhancements, these key features help make Xian NM Io R2 Service Pack 1, one of the most powerful and manageable network monitoring solutions available. Anyone who’s interested will be able to download Xian Network Manager Io R2 SP1 as of today.

“This version far exceeds our expectations, and will prove to be very useful for all people who want to keep a close eye on the overall health of their environments” says Arnold Hagens, Product Marketing Manager at Jalasoft.
