Paessler Moves to HTML 5 and Previews Improved PRTG Network Monitor at Cisco Live, London

BURLINGTON, Mass. and NUREMBERG, Germany, Jan. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Paessler AG, the innovative network monitoring solutions specialist, today announced that its PRTG Network Monitor software has switched to a new HTML 5 based web interface. By converting the User Interface (UI) to a Single Page Application (SPA), the new PRTG features a faster web experience and the ability to view and digest more information on a single page, creating a more streamlined and intuitive workflow for network administrators. Paessler will showcase the new interface for the first time at Cisco Live in London (January 28th - February 1st 2013, booth E66).

In the updated version, the existing web interface code has been completely rewritten in HTML 5 moving to a Single Page Application (SPA), now using pure AJAX. Reducing the reloading and reparsing of CSS, HTML and JavaScript allows for a faster user experience. PRTG's new web interface now rarely loads complete pages--instead page elements only refresh when necessary. Many tasks take place in pop-up layers within the browser instead of loading new pages, ensuring network administrators can focus on the task at hand.

The rewrite has also resulted in an improved design, which offers better functionality with fewer clicks, making PRTG more efficient to work with. Both the sensor and device pages now offer more information at a single glance, making features and information easier to find. In addition, network admins can now change the priority and favorite status of objects with just one click.

Also included in the update is a new heuristic calculation that matches sensors showing similar behavior, helping the user find interconnections in the network. For example, port X on router A has similar bandwidth consumption compared to port Y on server B, but the admin wasn't aware of a connection at all. This knowledge can lead to better planning of network resources and help the user detect unexpected influences and interactions between systems, which could be the result of security leaks.

"Creating software that is powerful and intuitive has always been a driving force here at Paessler," said Dirk Paessler, founder and CEO at Paessler. "The key to this is a great user interface that displays exactly the right amount of information and is easy to use, making every day tasks more efficient and information easy to find.

"Our new architecture not only enhances the user experience but it also allows Paessler to make future improvements to PRTG much faster. This is important given the growing list of feature requests we receive from customers and our desire to continue improving PRTG as quickly as possible in step with this demand."
