Trinagy's New Open Agent Suite Allows Service Providers and Enterprises to Meet Service Level Commitments Using Data From All Applications and Systems

VANTAGEwatch(TM) family includes Linux support and extends visibility to the

edge of the network

    TORRANCE, Calif., Jan. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Trinagy has developed the
 VANTAGEwatch family of agent products to give service providers and
 enterprises the intelligent insight necessary to meet service level
 commitments through all system and application resources on their networks.
 The VANTAGEwatch suite -- TRENDwatch(TM), SYSwatch(TM) APPwatch(TM) and
 RMONwatch(TM) -- delivers truly integrated data to give a complete picture of
 the network, top to bottom, in real time and in any user-chosen report format.
 The entirely standards-based architecture means users do not have to view
 separate reports and draw correlations from the data themselves.  Instead,
 they can measure any variable they choose within any context instantly,
 leaving nothing on the network to chance.  They avoid possible downtime on the
 network affecting their ability to meet service-level commitments that often
 come with financial penalties for non-compliance.  VANTAGEwatch is also the
 first complete agent suite to support Linux, in addition to Windows and UNIX.
 Linux is fast becoming the operating system of choice for service providers
 and large enterprises for use on systems and servers within their
     How VANTAGEwatch Works
     Trinagy's VANTAGEwatch family gathers reliable metrics of performance and
 response time of systems and applications.  With VANTAGEwatch, users can
 isolate and identify the source of potential performance issues anywhere in
 the network, answering that all-important question -- is it the network,
 system or application?  As a result, users can identify and respond to
 performance problems or even proactively circumvent issues before downtime
 results in financial loss or even worse, the loss of customers.  When coupled
 with TREND's robust analytic and reporting capabilities, VANTAGEwatch enables
 service providers and enterprises to document and deliver the guaranteed level
 of service specified in the service level agreements they have with their
     The fully programmable VANTAGEwatch solution suite includes:
     -- SYSwatch, which is RFC 1514 compliant and can look at the servers
        themselves to monitor system performance.  Users can identify
        overloaded systems, disk/file space shortages and poorly performing
        servers before they impact users.
     -- APPwatch, which tracks actual user response time of applications and
        monitors availability of services.  This ensures high availability and
        peak performance of mission-critical applications.
     -- RMONwatch, which has the functionality of APPwatch and SYSwatch as well
        as all 20 groups of RMON I and II that measure network and application
        traffic in real time.
     -- TRENDwatch, which will be installed on all TREND(R) servers at no
        additional charge and will monitor server resources and processes of
        TREND, Trinagy's performance management software.
     The products bear the Trinagy stamp of full modularity, scalability and
 openness to extract data from any source.
     Notes Steve Grinder, Trinagy's director of product management, "Our
 VANTAGEwatch products will make a difference to service providers' and
 enterprises' bottom lines.  Service providers can accurately predict and
 respond to issues affecting their service level agreements with customers,
 before they lose money for not fulfilling their end of the bargain.  Global IT
 managers can sleep at night knowing they can get a unified, instant picture of
 end-to-end performance across the enterprise, eliminating potential problems
 before they result in downtime and angry end-users."
     The Technology Behind Trinagy's TREND
     TREND's network data repository is a powerful, open, relational database
 that provides the links for integration into other OSS/BSS systems such as
 network inventory, event correlation, billing, and provisioning systems.
 Trinagy's TREND solution suite automates the collection and analysis of
 performance data, couples it with its industry-leading predictive tools to
 warn users of impending network problems, and delivers comprehensive reports
 with full interactive access from Web browsers. Built on a distributed open
 architecture, TREND scales to meet the demanding requirements of even the
 largest networks.  TREND supports custom report design, tailored threshold
 definitions, and specialized service level calculations required with today's
 IP-based, e-business infrastructures. With TREND, service providers and
 enterprises can proactively manage service level agreements and optimize
 existing resources. Further, they can gain a competitive edge through
 proactive network planning and differentiated, revenue generating services.

     Prices for SYSwatch and APPwatch start at $100 and $150  (U.S. list)
 respectively, depending on platform, when purchased with TREND.  The price of
 RMONwatch starts at $450 (U.S. list).  Volume pricing is available.  The
