New Product Enables Web-Based Performance Trend Analysis



May 29, 2001, 01:00 ET from Enlighten Software Solutions, Inc.

    SAN MATEO, Calif., May 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Enlighten Software Solutions,
 Inc. (Nasdaq:   SFTW), a leading provider of system management software for
 Linux, Unix, Windows and FreeBSD, today announced a new solution that
 significantly enhances and extends the abilities of the EnlightenDSM
 (Distributed System Manager) product suite.  The new product, Enlighten
 WebDSM, is scheduled to roll out in June.
     Enlighten WebDSM provides managers with browser-based, real-time network
 monitoring tools of exceptionally high quality. Enlighten WebDSM features a
 straightforward and easy to understand graphical interface that lets network
 managers remotely view system health, set up test monitors and analyze trends
 in CPU, RAM, disk and network usage.  Enlighten WebDSM's ability to perform
 remote, Web-based performance trend analysis reporting allows administrators
 to significantly expand their overall network monitoring capabilities.
     The launch of Enlighten WebDSM comes on the heels of a major cash infusion
 from Maden Technologies, known for helping engineer some of the most complex
 end-to-end networking, IT and security solutions in the federal government.
     "Enlighten WebDSM is an important new enhancement to Enlighten's total
 software offering," said Omar Maden, President and CEO of Enlighten.  "With
 its extremely well-designed graphical interface, and its ability to run trend
 analysis reports via the Web, Enlighten WebDSM is destined to have a major
 impact on how networks are managed."
     Enlighten WebDSM works in conjunction with EnlightenDSM, which measures
 and stores data values from hundreds of computer and network sub-systems.
 Enlighten WebDSM accesses stored data and displays the information in a
 variety of graphical forms including bar charts, line graphs and candle
 graphs. Users can view high-level overall system health through a combination
 of system status screens which display real-time data, and the Quick View
 Report, a one-page graphical summary of overall service availability including
 network bandwidth, memory usage, swap space utilization, free disk space,
 along with CPU and OS kernel performance statistics.
     With Enlighten WebDSM, administrators can solve problems fast. By
 providing a quick, comprehensive overview of current and real-time system
 health, managers can quickly identify and head off problems. In addition,
 Enlighten remote agents can be configured to take hands-off corrective action,
 even while system administrators are away.
     "EnlightenDSM and WebDSM together provide one of the most comprehensive
 systems management solutions available today," Maden said. "Enlighten
 continues to lead the way in solving the real-world problem of monitoring and
 maintaining complex, geographically diverse networks of multiple machines from
 multiple vendors."
