Delivering on part of its plan to broaden its LAN-based OpenView suite of network management applications to the internet, Hewlett-Packard Co will next week deliver an internet service manager which can collect performance statistics from Netscape and Microsoft web servers. HP says the data is useful for planning internet configurations and load balancing and for investment decisions. The module has a link-auditing subsystem HP says can monitor all world wide web links across a company’s web servers that can help ensure uninterrupted service. HP has already partnered with Checkpoint, Raptor and TIS and says all three allow polling, mapping and management of network devices through their firewall products. The internet service manager runs upon HP OpenView IT/Operations which runs on a Unix console and has agents for Unix, NT and Windows 95. It costs $800 this month. The long-awaited NT version of the console is now said to be six to nine months out. It will add Java/web interfaces available in addition to Windows and Motif next year.
