We are pleased to announce that SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor (NPM) version 10.5 is now available for download.


As today’s dynamic networks grow in size and complexity, the number of active routing topology states grows exponentially.  With the new network route monitoring feature, SolarWinds NPM takes fault and performance monitoring to the next level by providing real-time network route information alongside device status and performance statistics.  With support for major routing protocols including RIP, OSPF, and BGP, IT pros can now view routing tables, changes in default routes, and flapping routes in an intuitive web-based console.


Additionally, many advanced network services including multimedia distribution, finance, education, and desktop imaging rely on IP multicast to reduce network bandwidth usage. SolarWinds NPM’s new IP multicast monitoring feature enables IT pros to monitor routers, switches and end-points that receive and forward multicast packets by automatically detecting and importing existing multicast groups and applications.


Other new updates to SolarWinds NPM include advanced interface filtering by hardware type, name, VLAN and more for importation of new nodes and interface; and interface auditing.


You can learn more about NPM version 10.5 and download a free fully functional 30-day trial so you can see how it works in your network.
