Paessler AG has released version 9.2 of its PRTG Network Monitor with a few new features.
In addition to complete VMware 5 support is a rewrite of the Mobile Web GUI, which is now optimized for browsers on all common mobile operating systems. Also new are several improved sensors, including a Chromium-based full Web page sensor that improves Web site loading time measurements, and additional AJAX Web GUI features and improvements.
The company says in a news release it counts more than 400 improvement in v. 9.2, including 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 immeditate 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. 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.
The rewritten Mobile Web GUI supports iOS 3.2+, Android 2.1+/Honeycomb, BlackBerry 6+, Windows Phone 7+, WebOS 1.4+, Meego, Kindle 3+, Firefox Mobile, and Opera Mobile 11+.
