I thought some of you might appreciate an update on some of the nifty Google™ mapping features we are working on for Scrutinizer v7.0.   In the next release we have added the features supported in our flash maps:

  • Clickable links bring up the top hosts/applications/conversations etc. specific to the connection
  • The connections change color based on definable thresholds
Google Map Support in Scrutinizer v7.0

Other Google Map features include:

  • multiple Google maps
  • improved GPS placement for icons
  • icons changing color based on the device status across multiple 3rd party applications
  • linking to other map applications (e.g. flash maps with Visio backgrounds, WhatsUp Gold, etc.)

Version 7.0 will include many new features.  Improved Google map support is only a fraction of what we are working on.  I’ll leak more later.

Michael is one of the Co-founders and the former product manager for Scrutinizer. He enjoys many outdoor winter sports and often takes videos when he is snowmobiling, ice fishing or sledding with his kids. Cold weather and lots of snow make the best winters as far as he is concerned. Prior to starting Somix and Plixer, Mike worked in technical support at Cabletron Systems, acquired his Novell CNE and then moved to the training department for a few years. While in training he finished his Masters in Computer Information Systems from Southern New Hampshire University and then left technical training to pursue a new skill set in Professional Services. In 1998 he left the 'Tron' to start Somix which later became Plixer.
