SoftLogica announces the release of Server Supervisor

23 Nov 2008 10:06:16 GMT

Stop losing clients due to late detection of web server glitches
(image)

(image) Would you like to react proactively when your server parameters are about to reach critical values?

(image) Would you like to have your servers monitored 24/7 including weekends and holidays?

(image) Would you like to receive cumulative performance reports for your network resources at any time?

(image) Server Supervisor monitors the availability and performance of various network resources, from local workstations to web and database servers with distributed architecture. It checks the status of all resource components in a manner that depends on the resource type and monitoring parameters specified by the administrator. The product is configured and administrated with help of a user-friendly web interface, which makes it easy to access from any location on the network over secure SSL connection. Different users can be granted different access rights according to their roles and tasks. It makes the product useful for people responsible for specific resources.

A flexible system is used to specify each situation when the product users should be notified in real time. This can be done not only on faults, but also when the value of a monitored parameter achieves user specified error or warning level or returns back to normal. This feature provides different levels of sensitivity for the system and can help administrators resolve problems proactively. Notifications are sent by email, SMS and instant messenger services. Server Supervisor can also react to specified events by stopping or starting monitoring activities and executing external applications. For example, a web server can be restarted automatically if its failure is detected. It is also possible to plan and schedule monitoring of each resource according to its real work schedule and disable unneeded activities for off hours and maintenance time.

Server Supervisor has a built-in database to store statistical information about all monitor probes. The product includes a statistics analysis component which is targeted at providing a consolidated and descriptive view on the collected information. While exploring the statistics you can easily switch the view from large scale to short time periods. The product can be scheduled to generate different types of reports on a regular basis and optionally deliver by email.

1 Aug 2007 07:01:26 GMT

August 01, 2007 - SoftLogica announces the release of Handy Recovery 4.0, a new version of its data recovery software designed to restore accidentally lost files. The program supports NTFS/NTFS 5, FAT 12/16/32 and HFS/HFS+ file systems including image recovery from CompactFlash, SmartMedia, MultiMedia and Secure Digital cards.

(image) Handy Recovery uses an Explorer-like interface to browse the contents of your disk.

Recovered files can be saved to any drive accessible on your system. You can also restore the full branch of the folder tree that contains selected files and folders. Along with the main file data, the program can recover alternate data streams, used on NTFS to store additional information about files.

Handy Recovery features an option to create disk images for deferred recovery. You can create an exact image of a logical drive and save it to a special file in another location. It is later possible to open this image and recover files from it.

What's new in version 4.0:

- Special folder for easy detection of files deleted from Recycle Bin;
- Preview window to show the content of deleted files;
- HFS/HFS+ file systems support;

WAPT 5.0: Learn how your website performs under various load conditions

15 May 2007 07:26:49 GMT

(image) May 15, 2007 - SoftLogica announces WAPT 5.0, the new version of its load, stress and performance testing tool for web sites, web servers and applications with web interfaces.

In contrast to "800-pound gorilla" load testing tools, WAPT is designed to minimize the learning curve and give the user an ability to create a heavy load from a single regular workstation. You can create a basic test scenario and get meaningful information about your performance landscape in a matter of minutes. WAPT is able to generate up to 3000 simultaneously acting virtual users for an "average" test scenario using standard hardware configuration (Pentium 4 2GHz, 1GB RAM, Gigabit Ethernet).

WAPT creates a test workload which is virtually the same as the load experienced by a web site in the real world. Virtual users in each profile are fully customizable. They can have individual IP address (IP spoofing), user name and password, and persistent cookies, to name a few. Basic and Integrated Windows (NTLM) authentication methods are supported.

Graphs and reports are shown in real-time at different levels of detail, thus helping to manage the testing process. You don't need to wait for the completion of the test to get results, so if you have already identified a problem, you can stop the test, fix the problem and start the test again to check for performance changes.

The command line interface allows you to integrate WAPT into the existing development environment. Standard XML files are used to store test scenarios and can be modified by third party software.

What's New in version 5.0:

Tree-type Log Viewer: Comprehensive log viewer provides detailed representation of all requests, responses and errors that occur during the test run. This information is structured with the help of a tree view with several levels of details: profile, user, session and iteration. Using the tree view you can find any information easily without need to search through megabytes of log files. You can navigate to any particular request or browse errors one by one.

Automatic Parameterization of Requests: WAPT can be configured to automatically find dynamic values in responses during recording. It creates corresponding variables and uses them when recording subsequent requests. This feature significantly simplifies the design of tests for pages with dynamic content.

The detailed list of all 11 new features: http://www.loadtestingtool.com/version50.shtml

Pricing and Availability:

WAPT is designed for Microsoft Windows 98/ME/NT/2000/XP/2003. The 30-day trial version with full set of features limited to 20 concurrent virtual users can be downloaded at http://www.loadtestingtool.com/wapt.exe. The program is priced at $350 (USD) per license. Volume discounts are available. Free technical support is provided by e-mail (support@loadtestingtool.com) and by phone (+7.383.3356692).

SpamAid 4.0: Less Time Checking for False Positives

7 Mar 2007 09:49:58 GMT

(image) SoftLogica announces SpamAid 4.0, a new version of its Microsoft Outlook add-on designed to keep your Inbox clean of unsolicited emails.

(image) The program is based on Bayesian filtering technology. It automatically learns using your personal correspondence to increase the filtration accuracy. Quarantined e-mails are stored in a separate ‘Spam’ folder. Users can manage their friends and enemies lists or build their own filters. The program has an option to test outgoing mail for potential risk of being filtered as spam. Recognition of newsgroup messages using Safe Recipients list and automatic inclusion of outgoing mail recipients into Friends List are available. SpamAid is provided with POP3, IMAP, HTTP and MS Exchange support.

What’s new in version 4.0:

- Ability to automatically delete undoubted Spam.
If you face a very high spam load, you may lose a lot of time browsing the content of your ‘Spam’ folder to check for good messages filtered by mistake, because no spam filter is perfect. However, considerable amount of messages can be recognized as spam with 100% accuracy. Now you can configure 5 rules for SpamAid to delete such messages immediately while putting all other suspicious messages to the ‘Spam’ folder for further possible review.

- Potentialities of wildcards for phrase filtering.
You can use wildcards when specifying the spam/non-spam recognition keywords to deal with phrase variations.

- Outlook 2003 style interface.
With this new interface style the product will fit perfectly to the modern versions of Microsoft Outlook.

Release: WAPT 4.0 - Web Site Load, Stress and Performance Testing

WAPT 4.0: Web Site Load, Stress and Performance Testing January 05, 2006 - Novosibirsk, Russia. SoftLogica LLC announces WAPT 4.0, the new version of its load, stress and performance testing tool for web sites, web servers and applications with web interfaces. In contrast to “800-pound gorilla” load testing tools, WAPT is designed to minimize the learning curve and give the user an ability to create a heavy load from a single regular workstation. You can create a basic test scenario and get meaningful information about your performance landscape in a matter of minutes. WAPT is able to generate up to 2000 simultaneously acting virtual users for an "average" test scenario using standard hardware configuration (Pentium 4 2GHz, 512MB RAM, Gigabit Ethernet). WAPT creates a test workload which is virtually the same as the load experienced by a web site in the real world. For example, for retail sites, some users may be surfing the catalog, others searching for a specific product and submitting an order, while an administrator may be updating the catalog. Taking into account that various users perform different actions while browsing your site, the program lets you define as many different profiles of virtual user, as types of real web application users. Virtual users in each profile are fully customizable. They can have individual IP address (IP spoofing), user name and password, and persistent cookies, to name a few. Basic and Integrated Windows (NTLM) authentication methods are supported. The program handles user-specific dynamic hidden values and session variables assigned by a server. Graphs and reports are shown in real-time, thus helping to manage the testing process. You don’t need to wait for the completion of the test to get results, so if you have already identified a problem, you can stop the test, fix the problem and start the test again to check for performance changes. WAPT provides graphs and reports at different levels of detail to facilitate detection of possible bottlenecks. At first you can take a look at summary reports to see if there are any problems, then depending on the type of problem you can go to graphs and reports showing performance for specific pages and user profiles. The command line interface allows you to integrate WAPT into the existing development environment. Standard XML files are used to store test scenarios and can be modified by third party software. WAPT supports different language encodings, so you can test web sites in virtually any language, including forms and dynamic content. Web Site: http://www.loadtestingtool.com. Program Interface: http://www.loadtestingtool.com/wapt.gif. Pricing and Availability: WAPT is designed for Microsoft Windows 98/ME/NT/2000/XP/2003.
