Annapolis, MD — Apr 28, 2009 — Zenoss Inc., the leading commercial open source network and systems management provider, today announced the addition of NetFlow reporting through a partnership with Plixer.

The added capability – available as an extension to Zenoss’ award winning IT infrastructure monitoring solution – provides enterprises with even greater visibility into their network health and performance for a fraction of the cost of comparable solutions.

“Our enterprise customers smartly requested that we add NetFlow reporting capability to Zenoss Enterprise and we’ve quickly delivered,” said Bill Karpovich, Zenoss co-founder and CEO. “The integration of Plixer’s Scrutinizer with Zenoss Enterprise provides network engineers additional visibility into router performance and availability, reducing the time required to resolve network problems.”

With the integration complete, network engineers that are users of both Zenoss Enterprise and Plixer Scrutinizer can quickly identify network problems and immediately troubleshoot them. Network engineers can directly navigate from Zenoss Enterprise to Scrutinizer, which provides access to NetFlow and bandwidth utilization reports.
