US network management software vendor GroundWork Open Source (GWOS) has released version 6.3 of its GroundWork Monitor Enterprise Edition system and network monitoring suite. According to the San Francisco-based company, the latest release of its flagship product is targeted at service providers running complex infrastructures and includes several new capabilities.

Other new features include the addition of audible alarms for events, improved Java support for monitoring applications using the Oracle WebLogic 10 environment and various new dashboard options, including a new filtering option that allows users to customise their views.
