InMon Corp. introduces server performance monitoring with sFlowTrend
San Francisco, California — October 18, 2010 — InMon Corp. announced the immediate availability of sFlowTrend v4.2. sFlowTrend v4.2 uses the new extensions to the sFlow® standard, which includes physical and virtual server performance metrics, linking network, server and application performance monitoring to provide an end-end view of networked system performance.
"sFlowTrend integrates sFlow data available from hardware switch vendors’ devices, virtual switches, and servers to provide visibility into all the physical and virtual resources in a converged environment," said Peter Phaal, President, InMon Corp. "The result is a scalable performance monitoring solution which makes it possible to optimize workloads, isolate performance problems and charge for services at the same time as reducing costs by eliminating layers of monitoring."
