Neon Puts CyberGauge Bandwidth Measurement Tool On Windows NT

Neon Software announced a Windows NT version of its Internet bandwidth measurement utility CyberGauge, which can monitor and analyze the throughput of nearly any type of Internet router and determine how much bandwidth is being used on various switches and hubs.

Using Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), CyberGauge outputs its results in an easy-to-understand graphical format.

CyberGauge displays Internet bandwidth information in real time on a trend graph, saves the information for review, and exports or prints it on demand. It creates JPEG graphs automatically so that bandwidth data can be included on web pages. It can monitor multiple interfaces on multiple devices, and enable an administrator to view multiple data channels as a single virtual network interface.

"The crucial decision of balancing bandwidth needs and budget requires a thorough knowledge of current bandwidth utilization," said Michael Swan, chief technical officer, Neon Software. "CyberGauge provides the answers to critical questions facing businesses and schools today. Is my network connection 'maxed out'? Are users being turned away from my Web site during peak periods? Have my connections slowed down due to increased Internet traffic?"

Available in 5, 10, and 20 device versions, CyberGauge costs $295, $495, and $695 respectively. It is available immediately from the vendor and from resellers and international distributors.
