Lithium monitoring module

LithiumCorp on Tuesday officially launched its new range of monitoring plug-ins to provide hardware and software monitoring for Xserve (G5 and Intel), Xserve RAID, Qlogic Fibre Channel Switches, AirPort wireless base stations (including the new 802.11n units) and Mac OS X Server. These new plug-ins extend LithiumCorp's network, server and appliance monitoring suite -- "Lithium" -- to provide advanced monitoring for Apple specific products. "Lithium now provides a real alternative for managers of Apple-centric server and storage deployments that need a monitoring system that can competently handle these specialized devices as well as providing solid SNMP monitoring support for all the rest of their network equipment," the company said.

Lithium is a network monitoring system (NMS) designed for end-to-end Apple and Mac OS X support. Comparable to the popular Linux-based Nagios monitoring program, and Intermapper, Lithium brings an innovative graphical interface and advanced monitoring functions for the Xserve and Xserve RAID products using Apple's proprietary monitoring protocols, SNMP and the new IPMI (Lights Out Management) standards.

In addition, LithiumCorp has launched a revamped support site and a new-look online store.

The new Xserve, Xserve RAID, Qlogic, Airport and Mac OS X Server device modules for Lithium are available for purchase online and range from $5-$40 per device. The company has also launched a new "Lithium Xsampler" product that comes with single-device licenses for each of the new modules launched today for a 3 month period. The Xsampler bundle is available for $30.
