CA Nimsoft Monitor Snap Announced

CA Technologies announced on Tuesday the availability of a new monitoring tool, CA Nimsoft Monitor Snap, which allows users to monitor up to 30 devices for free.

The tool is a free version of its CA Nimsoft Monitor solution, and provides monitoring capabilities for network resources, physical and virtual servers, storage, and databases in a fully-integrated solution.

CA Technologies says its new tool is unlike other open source or free products for monitoring in that it can be set up quickly and can be managed from only one panel, rather than requiring multiple solutions to monitor each different aspect of the network. Open source monitoring solutions do exist, but it can require a large investment in customization.
