LANState and LANState Pro Comparison

Program Versions: Pro vs Standard

Network map and monitor - LANStateThe LANState software has two editions:

1) LANState Standard (or simply LANState) is a network mapping, monitoring, and management software. It contains basic network monitoring and Windows remote administration features. This version has a limitation of 50 hosts allowed to use on all maps simultaneously opened.

2) LANState Pro is the most advanced version of the program, which contains a built-in web server for the remote user access, advanced SNMP functionality, Syslog support, Visio exporting, and large maps for multiple monitor support. With the web interface's help, you are able to install the software on a single computer while users or system administrators will be able to see your network's state in the real time using their web browsers, analyze the history data on diagrams, etc.

 

The most important differences between the standard and Pro versions are:

1) LANState Pro has got a built-in web server for the remote user access.

2) LANState Pro allows exporting network diagrams to Microsoft Visio.

3) LANState Pro has several advanced functions for operating with switches via SNMP protocol. You can watch and save switch connection tables; get data on traffic, route tables, TCP and UDP connections; receive and monitor SNMP traps.

4) LANState Pro supports the Syslog monitoring.

5) LANState Pro generates reports on the monitoring results - downtime and host response times (avg. daily/weekly/monthly/yearly).

We have also added another our program "10-Strike Network Monitor (Standard/Pro)" to the table for the comparison. It has almost the same set of monitoring checks and notifications. The major difference is that its monitoring core is implemented as a service. So NM is better for using on dedicated servers for the background monitoring tasks than LS. If you want to use the network mapping and management functions on your PC, choose LANState instead.

We hope this table will help you to understand what product suits your needs better. If you are still having questions, please contact us and ask.
