connections based on the availability and load of the Web servers that
comprise the site, routing traffic around slowdowns.

WebSpective Crisis Manager automatically resolves crisis situations by
restarting failed Web servers and informing the Traffic Manager to route
traffic around them while they’re down. Also it prevents crises by predicting
failures and taking proactive prevention measures, including alerting Web site administrators.

WebSpective Site Administrator gives operations personnel centralized
observation, configuration and control of all of their Web servers and

WebSpective Performance Monitor keeps its fingers on the pulse of a site’s Web
applications, Web servers, host machines and network interfaces, monitoring
their load and performance metrics.

Finally, WebSpective SiteStats Manager centralizes the collection and logging
of traffic and performance data for a site’s Web applications, Web servers and
host machines. The data is centralized in a relational database for flexible
reporting and analysis.

Pricing for a complete WebSpective package is $15,000 per server. Atreve
provides consulting services, training and 24-x-7 technical support.
WebSpective runs on Sun Solaris 2.51 or higher and Windows NT 4.0 or higher,
