- By Scott Bekker
Cisco Systems Inc. today announced the availability of CiscoWorks Windows 5.0. The new solution provides users with a set of tools for detection and resolution of network problems before they become critical. CiscoWorks Windows 5.0 includes Ipswitch Inc.'s WhatsUp Gold, which provides network-wide discovery, mapping, monitoring, and notification capabilities.
WhatsUp Gold also enables users to monitor all network hardware, workstations, servers, and printers from a single application. In addition, CiscoWorks Windows 5.0 includes a threshold manager for remote monitoring (RMON)-enabled Cisco devices; StackMaker, for combining multiple Cisco devices into a single stack and managing them in a single window; and displays router operational information without requiring Cisco IOS commands.
