SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - July 29, 2010) -  While inexpensive is good, complimentary is better. Kratos Networks announces the release of a free desktop utility that helps IT and network managers monitor the availability and performance of one of the most critical business communication applications -- Microsoft® Exchange. The Kratos Exchange Monitor continuously tracks the elements that are critical to ensuring optimal Exchange health including support services, mail queue, and Outlook Web Access (OWA) performance.

IT managers can use the Kratos Exchange Monitor as a quicker and more convenient way to track the entire Exchange email service from their desktops without the need to launch a full blown management program. It monitors critical service dependencies from the Exchange application itself, down to network connectivity, server performance, Active Directory, DNS and more.

The Exchange Monitor identifies growing mail queues that can indicate larger issues, like transport delays or server over utilization. Performance issues can be prevented before users are impacted by setting mail queue size thresholds with built-in color coded health indicators. The utility also delivers the ability to monitor the status of your Outlook Web Access, to set thresholds and to load automatically at start-up so there is always an at-a-glance view of Exchange health.

To view additional and deeper metrics, manage multiple Exchange servers and other critical applications including IIS and SQL, Kratos Networks offers dopplerVUE®, an easy to use network monitoring and management tool, and NeuralStar®, an enterprise management solution used in some of the world's most advanced and secure networks, which monitors applications across multiple installations in distributed environments.

The Kratos Exchange Monitor is the latest in Kratos Networks' family of free IT management gadgets. Since their debut, the series of utilities has logged over 100,000 downloads. The full line up includes:

  • Exchange Monitor -- tracks services critical to Exchange performance
  • Website Traffic Monitor -- helps managers identify why users may experience website performance issues
  • Service Level Monitor -- measures upload and download speeds
