Scrutinizer Netflow & Sflow Analyzer Introduces Support For Autonomous Systems And Quality Of Service Reporting.

Jon Mills

Sanford, ME — Sep 25, 2007 — Plixer International Inc. today announces the arrival of Scrutinizer NetFlow & sFlow Analyzer version 5.5. The latest version of Plixer’s industry leading network traffic analyzer expands its feature set with Quality of Service (QoS) reporting and Autonomous Systems support.

Adding support for Autonomous Systems allows network administrators to see how much traffic is traveling between registered collections of IP networks and routers that use the same routing policies. Grouping network devices in a variety of ways for performance and utilization monitoring purposes can be a challenge. Plixer has made data presentation a priority in version 5.5.

The new QoS reports are based on Type of Service (ToS) and Differentiated Services (DiffServ) standards. Users can now verify that priority protocols are being routed appropriately; answering the question, “Who is using these priorities and with what applications?”

Some additional new features found in Scrutinizer NetFlow & sFlow Analyzer 5.5 include:

More Data Options
Trends in bytes and packets per second (i.e. no longer limited to bits/second)

Custom Report Enhancements
Source and Destination IP address ranges (i.e. from these IPs to these IPs)
Excluding any criteria (i.e. no longer limited to includes only)
QoS and Autonomous Systems

MPLS Reporting
Experience advanced custom reporting that supports MultiProtocol Label Switching.

Custom Report Grouping
Useful when creating tremendous amounts of Custom Reports.

Mapping Enhancements
Create more detailed and comprehensive network maps with the ability to add text boxes, shapes, etc.

Alarming Enhancements
Expanded alarm conditioning that makes recognizing irregular traffic patterns easier.

System Requirements
System requirements can vary depending on specific product implementations. Operating platforms include Windows 2000/2003/XP.
