PathViewAs you may have seen from a press release earlier today PathView 2.0 is very near to release, and I wanted to give you a glimpse into what’s new in this major release. This is just a brief overview and there will be more detail on key features in this blog and on the ApparentTools.com site in the coming days and weeks.

PathView Report Server – PathView has some great information on your networks performance, and now you have an automated, scalable and customizable way to share that information with other users. PathView Report Server enables you to create or customize reports and dashboards through a simple web based drag-and-drop interface, then schedule these reports for automatic generation and delivery to any number of users.

Virtualization Support – This has been a major focus for us in 2.0, and there is more to come in the near future as we are now part of the VMware Technology Alliance. You can now run the PathView Server on VMware ESX and the performance analysis and diagnostics to VM targets is better than ever. Stay tuned for even more capability in the VM space in upcoming releases.

VoIP Enhancements – VoIP environments have been a strong point for PathView from day one, but 2.0 includes continuous VoIP specific analysis and diagnostics, so that voice specific metrics like MOS, Voice Loss and Voice Jitter are available at all times for Voice Paths.

QoS Enhancements – Support for QoS has also been enhanced in 2.0, so now you can actually see QoS values in the hop-by-hop breakdown provided with diagnostic tests. You can also model multiple paths between the same source and destination with different QoS values to directly correspond with different service levels between offices.

Performance Improvements – PathView’s diagnostic engine has also been enhanced so that problems are identified and diagnosed up to 600% faster. These performance gains enable you to resolve problems on slow WAN links many times faster than before with no drop off in accuracy.

PathView Team – Along with 2.0 we are also announcing new models of PathView to support larger customers’ network environments. PathView Team supports multiple, concurrent users, remote access to PathView and up to 40 network sequencers. If you have already purchased PathView and want to upgrade, you will get 100% trade in credit to upgrade for your current license towards PathView Team.
