Codima Inc. (CDMA) Unveils Codima Toolbox 6.9. - Introducing One Point Access Report Manager And Traffic Priority Tracking
The new Report Manager used across the entire Codima Toolbox gives IT professionals an invaluable resource, harvesting network information from one single point of access and creating highly visual reports. Report styles can be customized, and reports can be converted into local languages, for example reducing language barriers within organizations. The user friendly Report Manager arrives with more than 90 predefined reports for users to choose from. Created daily, weekly or monthly in Microsoft Word and HTML, reports can be filtered to focus on specific items.
Utilizing passive analysis, the new Traffic Priority Tracking feature, performs deep priority traffic analysis. Based on preset rules or rules set by the user, the Traffic Priority Tracking feature automatically tracks protocols and nodes, to determine traffic priority. For example, protocols and nodes with incorrect priority that can damage VoIP traffic flows can be identified and reassigned, potentially improving call quality.
Other new features include the Device Editor, enabling users to manually edit devices types and add comments to network maps created in Microsoft® Office Visio®. Though existing network information is used to draw the topology maps, manual edits may be required to better describe the actual network topology. The edits can be retained even after another discovery is performed making the Device Editor a true time saver when completing regular chores. The Codima Toolbox uses the network maps to translate raw IP addresses into system names, directly displaying the identity of any IT asset visually.
"The Codima architecture is built from the ground up, so there is no need to integrate with other software technologies. This enables us to rapidly respond to market demands and provide IT teams with advanced integrated network technology that is highly automated thus easy to use. Codima Toolbox 6.9 is a good example on how we collaborate with customers to fully bring the user perspective into our solution and add more customer value. " said Phil Friend, CTO of Codima Inc.
"Driving down IT costs is key in every organization today. Our new release is designed to improve usability and deliver information required to reduce problem resolution time, to save valuable time. This contributes to real savings. " comments Codima's CEO Christer Mattsson.
