NetIQ’s Chariot Available to Test Itanium Processor

NetIQ Corp. today announced that its network testing tool, Chariot 4.0, will be available for use to test the performance of software and hardware built on Intel Corp.’s forthcoming Itanium processor.

Chariot enables enterprises to predict how well their network infrastructures will perform.

By providing comprehensive reports, corporations can take the necessary steps if the tests show that the applications are now performing up to standards. 

Using Chariot, service providers will be able to evaluate Itanium-based servers, enabling them to optimize performance for future deployment. Network equipment vendors planning on selling devices based on the Itanium processor will be able to use Chariot to ensure that their products will perform at their expected levels.

Chariot Performance Endpoints can be installed on more than 20 different operating systems, including beta versions of 64-bit Windows and Turbo-Linux.

NetIQ will release updated Performance Endpoints for 64-bit Windows and Turbo-Linux to coincide with general availability of Itanium-based hardware and operating systems this year. Chariot 4.0 is available today. Pricing for Chariot begins at $14,000. – Jim Martin
