Opnet buys smaller vendor

App monitoring improved

Opnet has acquired Network Physics for US$10 million (NZ$13 million).

Opnet, which makes capacity planning products such as IT Guru and network security audit tools such as IT Sentinel, will couple Network Physics' NetSensory technology with its own ACE application to offer customers application performance monitoring. Combining the technology, Opnet says, will enable customers to monitor application performance from the back-end systems to the user machine.

"[The Network Physics] acquisition provides Opnet with one of the technically most powerful engines for monitoring application traffic across the network with a high level of application awareness, and interrelated insights into traffic volumes, routed paths and application performance and response," says Enterprise Management Associates analyst Dennis Drogseth.
