Network Route and Multicast Monitoring Now in SolarWinds Network Performance 
Latest Version Offers IT Professionals Greater Depth Navigating
Growing Network Complexity, Reduced Errors and Time Saved 
AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 05/23/13 --   SolarWinds (NYSE: SWI),
a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software,
today introduced new network route and multicast monitoring
capabilities within its flagship network management product,
SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor (NPM). SolarWinds NPM offers
IT professionals powerful network fault, availability and performance
management, simplifying detection, diagnosis and resolution of
network issues before outages occur.  
As today's dynamic networks grow in size and complexity, the number
of active routing topology states grows exponentially. With the new
network route monitoring feature, SolarWinds NPM takes fault and
performance monitoring to the next level by providing real-time
network route information alongside device status and performance
statistics. With support for major routing protocols including RIP
v2, OSPF v2, and BGP, IT pros can now view routing tables, changes in
default routes, BGP transitions and flapping routes in an intuitive
web-based console. 
Additionally, many advanced network services including multimedia
distribution, finance, education, and desktop imaging rely on IP
multicast to reduce network bandwidth usage. SolarWinds NPM's new
network multicast monitoring feature enables IT pros to monitor
routers, switches and end-points that receive and forward multicast
packets by automatically detecting and importing existing multicast
groups and applications. 
Other new updates to SolarWinds NPM include advanced interface
filtering by hardware type, name, VLAN and more for importation of
new nodes and interface; and interface auditing.
