NerveCenter 3.0 monitors critical parts of data networks and can automatically take steps to keep traffic flowing in the case of an outage or a problem with a particular piece of networking gear, the company said.
The software, which Seagate calls an "event correlation" tool, works with both Unix- and Windows NT-based networks, so overall network health can be monitored on almost any corporate system.
NerveCenter includes technology that studies a network and allows an administrator to program alerts based on a series of interrelated problems on a network.
NerveCenter also can pinpoint a series of events on a network and invoke a command from the Windows NT operating system to solve the problem. The product can be distributed across a network to remote sites and branch offices as well as correlate data and simple network management protocol events from networks, systems, and applications, which minimizes diagnosis time for a manager, according to the company.
NerveCenter 3.0 costs $2,195 for a single server license, good for managing up to ten nodes, up to $24,995 for a single server license managing an unlimited number of nodes.
