Network Performance Monitoring
Maximize uptime and prevent network interruptions or outages with InterMapper. InterMapper monitors every device in your network and provides you with real-time statistics on everything from packet loss and response time to temperature, bandwidth usage, and availability.
High-Speed Network Monitoring
Independently poll every device in your network
InterMapper's lean and efficient network performance monitoring engine independently polls every device on your network. Even if one device is slow to respond, the polling process continues at high speeds. Polling is separate from graphics rendering, allowing the network monitoring process to proceed at high speed.
Designate custom polling intervals depending on the network monitoring data desired and the importance of the information you're gathering. Whether you have 20 network devices or 2,000, InterMapper's wireless device monitoring capabilities can handle the devices you have today and scale to provide equally powerful monitoring for the network as it grows and expands.
Server Monitoring Software
Keep your servers up and running
InterMapper's server monitoring abilities continually test your servers to ensure that they are working properly. InterMapper sends queries using SNMP, TCP, HTTP, and other network protocols to the server, measures response time, and also verifies that the responses are correct. With server monitoring software like InterMapper, you can configure alerts and receive notification when the service stops operating, a response time exceeds your thresholds, or some other network health issue is detected.
Because it is a comprehensive server monitoring software solution, InterMapper's probes will monitor:
- Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) and Windows/NT Service tests
- Host Resources MIB via SNMP
- Exchange Server
- Barracuda Spam Filter (and other Spam filters)
- Integrated Processor Management Interface (IPMI)
- Lights out management (LOM)
Windows Management Interface (WMI) probes see deep into the Windows OS to show the server’s conditions. The Host Resources probe provides a powerful view on the CPU, disk, and memory state of your server by querying the RFC 2790 MIB using SNMP v1, v2c, or v3. Windows Services ("NT Services") are monitored directly, and you can receive an alert if a particular service stops operating.
Application Monitoring Software
Proactively monitor applications to ensure quality service
When InterMapper is used for application monitoring, it enables your organization to monitor and control the performance of your mission-critical software tools. Whether at a small-to medium-sized business or large enterprise, application monitoring software helps to improve the user experience by notifying you of any degradation in quality of service (QoS monitoring). Application monitoring tools let you proactively respond to slowdowns or failures of important applications.
Application monitoring software provides:
- Faster resolution of application performance and availability issues
- Visibility for both IT management and business stakeholders
- QoS monitoring to enable adherence to service levels agreements (SLAs)
- Greater organizational productivity with fewer incidents and lower time to resolution
The robust network mapping and monitoring tool uses synthetic transactions to monitor and report on your business-critical applications including:
- Email (POP, IMAP, SMTP, message round-trip measurement)
- Web (GET, POST, Redirect)
- Printers and LPR
- Videoconferencing and VoIP (IPSLA, QoS, SIP, multicast, RTSP)
- Other applications (FTP, DNS, LDAP, SSH)
A "synthetic transaction" is a simulation of the actions that a real customer would perform to give end-to-end proof that business critical servers and services are—or are not—operating properly.
Monitoring Across Multiple Protocols
Use multiple protocols
InterMapper can monitor network performance for virtually any equipment using one of its built-in probes. View the state of a device using any protocol: SNMP, TCP, HTTP, UDP, etc. Probes gather real-time information about network performance so that network bandwidth issues can be promptly addressed.
Keep a close eye on your network no matter where you are
Use InterMapper's responsive web interface to ensure proactive server monitoring from near and far. Our web interface supports modern browsers on tablets and phones, which gives you the ability to acknowledge a network capacity issue directly from your device at any time.
InterMapper's mobile monitoring functionality increases the efficiency with which you can monitor your network health, allowing your team to be more responsive to network issues than ever.
Create your own notifiers for custom actions
Alerts on bandwidth or network performance issues can be sent through standard mechanism such as email, text message, or sound.
Notifications can be customized to fit a network administrator’s needs. For instance, set a delay to avoid notifying for short outages or minor problems. For more major issues, you can set a repeat interval and count to be sure that the alert gets delivered.
Escalation of problems is made easy with InterMapper. If a device goes down, you can immediately alert the tech on call. You can also set a delay, and if the device remains down for that time period, you can send an alert to other people; another longer delay could even be used as belt-and-suspenders alerts to other administrators.

Device Status Windows
Status Windows give quick access to the most important information for a device. Click and hold the mouse on a device's icon or on a link to open the Status Window; the Status Window disappears when the mouse is released. For persistent viewing, Status Windows will stay open if you “tear them off” by dragging the mouse outside the window boundary.
- Device Status Windows display static information (such as device name, IP address, sysLocation and sysContact) as well as dynamic data including response time, packet loss rate (if applicable), uptime, availability, CPU and memory utilization, temperatures, transactions per second, and other data that has been collected from the device.
- Interface Status Windows display transmit and receive statistics, utilization rates, and the device's name, link type, description, status, and IP and MAC address.
