InterMapper is a multiplatform and commercial graphical software that allows system administrators and end-users alike to monitor their networks by using alert capabilities and in-depth mapping functionality. It can also be used as a network mapping tool.
With InterMapper, you will be able to view everything that happens on your network like never before. The software boasts live maps that will give you a real-time, visual view of traffic flows between network links and elements.
Features at a glance
Key features include auto-discovery, custom notifiers, physical and geographic maps, historical trend analysis, small install footprint, as well as visual traffic flow. While the auto-discovery function will ensure that every device on the network that has an IP address is automatically discovered and listed in the application, the custom notifiers make sure that you never miss an alert.
In addition, the physical and geographic maps feature has been implemented to display customized views of both your devices and network, the historical trend analysis functionality collects and compares network data, alerting the user if issues are found, and InterMapper’s visual network maps provide uses with real-time views of their network’s health.
