Simple Monitoring For Any SNMP Device (Free Download)

SolarWinds has just released a new free tool called the Network Device Monitor.

The Network Device Monitor can watch a single network device like a router, firewall or server. It can monitor any SNMP variable, and the desktop dashboard will display current status to help alert you if the system is in trouble.

The Network Device Monitor includes support for devices from many major manufacturers. In addition, Network Device Manager is fully integrated with the Thwack online community. Through Thwack, you can download Solarwinds and user-generated templates that make the Network Device Manager work with hundreds of different manufacturers’ hardware.
