December 29, 2000, 2:46 PM — NETPRO HAS ENHANCED its software to make managing directories easier for network managers.
DS Analyzer is a software solution for Novell Directory Services (NDS) eDirectory that lets network managers troubleshoot and tune their directories for optimal performance.
NetPro added an enhanced user interface and scalability, improved reporting, and plugged in a context-sensitive knowledge base. The knowledge base lets users make sense of the data they retrieve from directories so that they can diagnose problems and make intelligent decisions about their directories as they grow.
The knowledge base also gives interpretations of graph data, recommends architectures, offers detailed NDS eDirectory reference material, and suggests possible solutions to NDS eDirectory problems.
DS Analyzer is part of a family of network management solutions, including DS Expert, which monitors NDS eDirectory and provides alerts on out-of-threshold settings. DS Analyzer and DS Expert may be purchased together for a bundled price of $18 per NDS eDirectory user object. The bundle is currently available.
