Savant Corp. is expanding into network event management with software to root out availability problems.
QSensor, scheduled to ship in January, comes preconfigured to recognize availability aberrations before they result in network or system downtime. It uses artificial intelligence to spot deviations from normal availability levels for network devices, operating systems, and databases, then alerts IT administrators, Savant says.
Savant supplies the performance and availability parameters that IT managers use to set alarms that are triggered when predetermined thresholds are reached. QSensor will compile availability and performance statistics in real time and use statistical analysis to ferret out false and redundant alerts.
The first version of QSensor will be able to diagnose both availability and performance problems in enterprise databases and operating systems, but it will only troubleshoot availability problems in network devices. Pricing will start at $15,000 per server and will range from $1,250 to $2,500 for additional views of devices, databases, and servers.
