InterMapper points out network problems -- often before users and customers suffer downtime or poor performance. SNMP and ping probes discover and query elements across your distributed network - whether it spans several rooms, a building, an office park, or distributed locations. Synthetic transactions test critical applications and alert you to email, web, or directory server problems. It's easy to set up - you'll be working in a couple hours.
What's New
Version 5.7.1:
  • Fixed the logic that implements the activation grace period. This resolves the "missing maps" problems seen after a license that requires activation was installed.
  • InterMapper server can now be controlled from InterMapper Control Center on OS X 10.9.
  • If set to SNMPv3, the default SNMP settings are now being used for automatic probes.
Requirements
Intel/PPC, OS X 10.5 or later

I've always loved InterMapper. It's one of the best Mac tools for actively monitoring network utilization and just about any other SNMP info.

My initial purchase years ago for an unlimited license was quite reasonable. As time passed, the cost of keeping the product current increased out of my budget. That's not to say the product and its developer isn't worth it.

Forced to look for alternatives, I found The Dude from MikroTik. I dabbled with it on its native Windows occasionally, finding it to be quite complex, but full of potential. Recently, I used WineBottler to install it as an app within OS X and was surprised to find it working quite well (2.8 Quad Xeon with the Dude server running on a separate Win box).

The Dude doesn't have the beloved marching ants of InterMapper, but it can gradually change the link colors as utilization grows. I still have much to learn, but with some effort, I imagine it's possible to do many of the things that IM once did for me. Not bad for free. Of course, you have to ask yourself, how much time do you have?

> [LATERAL] The Mac installer repairs permissions on /usr/local/bin to 0755, in case they have inadvertently changed.

That's naughty. Don't mess with permissions on a directory that's sharable with other applications.

I tried Intermapper to see if it could be a replacement for the now-Windows-only LANSurveyor. For my needs, it did not work out well.

Intermapper had a much steeper learning curve than LANSurveyor and did not seem as well polished. It did seem VERY detailed and capable of some complex reports, but was just not what I was looking for.

Are these five-for-free licenses still available?

Positive: Powerful and very versatile. It has a great diversity of monitoring choices.

Negative: Not at all obvious. The good stuff is hidden. Desperately needs a GUI redesign and window reorganization! It has maps and pictures, but so what. Many of the great features are anything but obvious and even when you discover a feature accidentally after lots of searching around, it is not obvious what you are actually setting up.

If you are looking for serious network monitoring and notification, Intermapper is awesome! It includes a huge set of probe types and has the abilty to customize your own. The built it webserver is great and notifications easy to configure but powerful. Best of all, you don't have to be unix admin to get it setup and working, unlike Nagios. I personally think the licensing is a bit steep, but if you want to use it for a small home network you can get a FREE 5 device license!

$449 - $2399 is too expensive for home use but if you can afford that the tool does work as advertised.

We would use it in our company (>100) servers to monitor everything; unfortunately its way too expensive for us. Instead of this we use Nagios and MRTG; it gives you the same features -- which are definately harder to set up than InterMapper, though. :)

Well, if you go to www.intermapper.com you can apply for a free 'home' license that can monitor 5 devices.

And to the price point issue, compare IM to apps like HP Openview and other commercial packages and IM is a bargain!

Also, HP OpenView takes a highend server to monitor half the devices IM can monitor on a Mac mini...

Hope it helps,

The 5 node license is not without expiry either. I've had to renew mine twice, each time I get a new serial with 30 days to expire. The web site is mis leading to suggest otherwise. Nice app though.

Bosie - your Five-For-Free license should work forever as long as you're using a particular version of InterMapper.

If this doesn't seem to be the case, please contact me, or, better, send a note to support@dartware.com.

Thanks.

Well, I do not find the 5-node for free version on your site? :-(
