BMC Rolls Out Patrol for Diagnostic Management

BMC Software Inc. today added a new management package to its Patrol 2000 suite of network monitoring software.

Patrol for Diagnostic Management automates the detection of system failures, reducing the time between failure and correction. When problems occur on the network, the plug in attempts to isolate the root causes of the issue, allowing administrators to focus on correcting the problem, rather than engage in hit or miss diagnosis.

“The ability to do this in real time is dumbfounding,” declares David Wagner, director of product marketing at BMC (www.bmc.com). Wagner also points to Patrol for Diagnostic Management’s use in large network changes. If administrators expect significant changes in the computing environment, such as the addition of new applications or users, Diagnostic Management can pinpoint what systems are liable to fail.

All components of Patrol 2000 are certified for Windows 2000, and integrate with the Windows Management Interface (WMI).

Patrol for Diagnostic Management exploits technologies BMC gained with its acquisition of Evity Inc. (www.evity.com). Patrol for Diagnostic Management is one of the first examples of BMC’s integration of Evity products into the BMC line. - Christopher McConnell
