Paris, France, March 2014
LUTEUS is pleased to announce the availability of the version 7 of its SNMP management software LoriotPro. LoriotPro offers in standard, a rich and configurable graphical environment to facilitate the monitoring your IP infrastructure. If you opt for the Extended or Broadcast Editions, you will possess much more: a complete development tool for adapting our product to your most exotic needs, including creating Windows or WEB dashboard, the management and correlation of alarms, performance graphs, control of QOS? etc..,
Built with Visual Studio 2010 development tool from Microsoft, LoriotPro Version 7 has been improved to provide significantly more processing power and features. With the integration of language LUA script LoriotPro is both a monitoring solution for systems and VDI networks and a complete environment for SNMP and monitoring application development.
The Maps and Dashboards of LoriotPro otherwise called ACTIVE VIEW offer new graphics features and superior visual quality. The visuals in vector format may contain various images and graphic objects. Management attributes of these objects can be achieved by simple expressions or LUA scripts (Extended Edition and Broadcast Edition). Support full screen and multi screen displays many visual control of your infrastructure in your monitoring center. In version 7and in the Broadcast edition, the support of Global Objects allows the refresh of the visuals on one second.
The discovery of your network by IP Scanner scan tool allows you within minutes to enrich the directory with the devices connected to your network. The automatic recognition capabilities can trigger the launch of your own recognition programs (written LUA language). Discovery programs can also automatically configure new devices and their collection and control processes.
The Broadcast edition is intended for professionals from the world of the distribution of audio and video content(voice/data/images). This edition brings all the features already present on an Extended Edition, but provide them in a real time mode. Hundreds of indicators can be collected in the second and dashboards (Active View) refreshed in the same interval. With our new concept of “Global Objects”, the monitored objects (collections SNMP, error counter, and connectivity status) can be maintained between several LoriotPro in a single base distributed and synchronized. This unique and innovative concept ensures the distribution of load and of the network traffic as well as the real-time redundancy of the solution. Read more about Global Object in the developper documentation
Alias objects are available in the directory. This new type of objects allows the duplication of existing host object, to use them in groups of objects by functions or service and then to follow the status of the group. As example, it is possible to create a group (Organization Unit) monitoring the messaging service that contains all the required resources, Alias or not. The underlying resources can be servers but also auditing modules to DNS, to the outgoing SMTP to internal or external services. In case of unavailability of one of these resources, the messaging service can be considered as degraded and some visual alarms, sound messages, e-mails or SMS may be triggered.
The library to access to the WEB. LoriotPro resources can be accessed asynchronously (AJAX/XML) through a library of requests HTTP/XLUA. It is therefore possible to define its own WEB client interface or enrich the already existing WEB pages. Combined with the graphic libraries described previously visuals of any type can be achieved.
LoriotPro Directory allows continuously all your resources and their availability status. With version 7 you can assign to your equipment the icon you want and outcome of your own libraries of icons.

Paris, France, June 2013
A new release bz4 of LoriotPro is available. Visit our download page.
Paris, France, Mai 2010
The version 6 of LoriotPro software is available since May 2010 for its all editions.
This new version provides even more features and power to help you in your daily work of supervision of your IT infrastructure and technology. The four different editions of LoriotPro are always available, which allows you to choose the License according to the network size and the number of IP devices to monitor. As a reminder, the Standard edition does not limit the number of monitored IP node. With the version 6 of LoriotPro, you can purchase additional modules (plugin) to add to your Standard or Lite edition features that are only available on the Extended Edition.
The LoriotPro software, over its various versions, has become an extremely versatile solution able to simultaneously perform thousands of checks and collections of hundreds of systems using standard protocols such as SNMP and TCP. The collections are used to notify you of the operating condition or load supported by your systems through all possible means, visual maps, email, sms, etc. The intensive use of the multi-tasking capabilities of Windows allows LoriotPro to process hundreds of simultaneous requests and thus can be used for the control of several systems from a single LoriotPro monitoring platform.
The LoriotPro internal collectors of events, SNMP Trap and SYSLOG, have a powerful software architecture optimized for almost real time acquisition and processing, in order to inform you of any anomalies in the shortest time and even trigger an automatic corrective treatment (see Extended Edition and SNMP automation).
This primarily for these exceptional processing capabilities that some of our customers (telecom operators, ISPs and broadcaster) chose LoriotPro.
LoriotPro, the Windows operating system and its graphical interface are undoubtedly more dynamic and responsive compared to web management solutions based on a SQL database.
Among the new Version 6 features, a new LoriotPro plugin is available for Ethernet and IP flow analysis using the RMON RMON2 SNMP standard. If you have RMON compatible Ethernet switches or if you have any RMON probes, RMON GUI module can collect with SNMP statistic information on the network traffic. Graphical views and tables help you to determine and identify the top Ethernet consumers and the consumption by host IP and IP application.
Among the new features of this version 6, the LoriotPro Extended Edition has a new mechanism for creating your own dynamic web pages with the language LUA. As a reminder, the language LUA is an interpreted scripting language that is integrated (embedded) in LoriotPro. Its integration provides very fast native treatments without the slowness of interpreted languages.
As example, in a simple LUA script, you can: collect SNMP information about the running condition of your servers, alert the administrator on default and publish the result on the web. This can be done in few lines of LUA code, thanks to the hundreds of powerful functions provided by LoriotPro.
Until now, the web interface offered by LoriotPro could not be modified or creating new pages was difficult. With the support of LUA directly through our Web server you can now write your own web interface with access to all the network management information collected by LoriotPro and with SNMP. Furthermore, the integrated LUA script development environment built into LoriotPro helps you to write and debug your scripts directly in their context.
To resume, LoriotPro is a feature-rich solution that includes development tools required to create Windows and Web application dedicated to monitoring and automation of process in network and systems environment.
We are proud to announce the availability of our new LoriotPro software Version 5. After months of developments this new release of our Monitoring and auditing Software provides great enhancements and features that rocket our solution in a new dimension.
LoriotPro Version 5 has been designed for Microsoft Windows Vista and XP. The internal design has been greatly enhanced for managing a greater number of simultaneous processes. LoriotPro is now comparable to an operating system dedicated to information system monitoring and auditing.
With the features added to the Extended Edition of LoriotPro, our customers have in a single package a complete development software platform and a powerful graphical network and system management solution. LoriotPro Extended Edition with its underground concept is unique on the market and cannot be compared to anything else. The versatility brought by the integrated scripting language allows the fast development of dreamt solution that can cover almost any monitoring and management problems.
With version 5, we still keep the 4 Editions available (FREE, LITE, STANDARD and EXTENDED). In evaluation mode when installing LoriotPro V5 you can now choose which Edition you want to try. If a license is purchased, the installation of a licensed key will move your evaluation software in a ready to work software.

Create trend graphs with RRD Collector and RRD Manager a Microsoft Windows RRD front end. The main goal of the RRD collector is the creation of time graph that display the trend over time of one or more values. A time graph displays on the x axis the time and on the y axis the values of the variables. The variable values are collected by LoriotPro (SNMP object, round trip time values results of ping request or LUA script returned values).
Quality of Service Report generation with the new SLA Report Center plugin. LoriotPro can produce analysis reports on the service quality (QOS) on the criteria of availability and performance of the services provided by the information system. The services mentioned here are any networks and systems services, middleware services (base data, DNS, Directory, etc…) and end user applications.
LoriotPro console access control. The LoriotPro console can be locked to restrict access to a simple user with a very simple interface. For example a LoriotPro user can have access to a single Active View with not editing permission.
The new service plug-in text to speech player converts any text event message into a voice message. This plug-in use the Microsoft Text to speech standard and voice form different language can be added.
The SNMP table auditor plug-in provides an innovative tabular view for monitoring and finding network troubles and network usage trend of a huge number of SNMP objects located in a SNMP table or in predefined list of SNMP object.

LUTEUS is proud to announce the new LoriotPro version 3.
This major evolution includes a lot of new functionalities
that will bring you more manageability and control on your
Information System and increase your efficiency in your daily
The supervision and the administration of the physical and
virtual entities composing the Information System are now
really interactive with our new concept of ACTIVE VIEW.
An Active View is a visual representation of the entities
or objects manipulated and supervised by the LoriotPro console.
Each entity, from the smallest one (a device port for example)
to the biggest one (a country map) is dynamic and reflects
by color, its operational status, its availability or a performance
An editor allows you to built your own Active View and thus
to create multiple visual representation of your sensitive
resources. The less status change in one of your resource
could be immediately detected and displayed on the View, triggering
other actions like Alarm or E-mail. Each object on the View
could has its own user defined contextual menu allowing direct
access to associated management tools, diagnose programs or
other LoriotPro Plug-in.
The Active View is vector based graphics and could be displayed
at various scales. Simple or complex graphical objects are
supported and also the import of graphics from other drawing
software likes Micosoft Visio or Adobe Illustrator. A ClipArt
library is provided for a fast design of your own Views. You
could also extend the library with your own ClipArt if they
follow the Microsoft WMF – EMF standard. The creation
of templates allows you to apply to complex device representation
having the same configuration and behaviour, a predefined
Active View, avoiding the fastidious design of similar Views.
LoriotPro V3 supplies numerous WIZARD or assistants that
help you to choose the right parameter during configuration
process. Difficult or fastidious tasks like Polling interval
selection, Host selection, SNMP OID selection, Event number
selection become easy with the WIZARDs. For example, one of
the most frequent and repetitive task during configuration
phase, the selection of an OID and its index, is totally assisted
avoiding error configuration.
LoriotPro is provided with a complete electronic documentation
of more than 1000 sheets, directly accessible from the application.
HowTo are also available on the web site www.loriotpro.com
for helping you to configure third products and to integrate
LoriotPro in your environment.
Among the new functionalities
provided, LoriotPro is now capable of running as a Windows
Service under 200/XP. The automatic start-up of the software
is thus guarantied avoiding to the administrator a logging
sequence. A modified strategy for the configuration file allows
a simple backup. A watchdog module controls the state of LoriotPro
process and service and restarts the product if one of them
fails to respond. With these features, the LoriotPro application
itself is always available for supervising.
The Host property configuration dialog interface is new and
natively provides the current polling success and response
time. The Polling process could be individually stopped for
each host during maintenance period, avoiding not justified
alarms in the event manager.
The WEB remote console has a totally new interface. A rich
visual interface, more users friendly, is now available. The
availability and the response time of each host collected
by the Polling process are displayed among numerous other
status indicators. Direct filter buttons allows you to see
in one click all host having the same status. The WEB console
access control is now based on user authentication and level.
Each branch and object of the directory tree can be distinctively
hided to the remote view of a user. Global information, Maps,
logs, traps, report can also be hided based on a user level.
The MIB Compiler is now able to manage multiple data base
allowing you to change your working environment. Very useful
feature if you use LoriotPro software in nomad mode or for
New Plug-in …
The Spanning Tree Plug-in is always provided and now supports
the CISCO multi instance bridging (VLAN). With this function
you can have distinct MAP representing your spanning tree
architecture for each VLAN of your switched environment. The
MAP are also visible from the WEB remote console.
A powerful Plug-in calculates call durations and provides
statistic information on ISDN communication calls between
sites or globally. The raw statistics are collected by the
Plug-in Cisco Call History already available in LoriotPro
version 2. The rapprochement between the generated report
and the Telco Operator billing provides you with a better
understanding of your communication costs.
The supervision of processes on Unix or Windows System is
now possible with our PROCESS SURVEYOR Plug-in. Events and
actions can be triggered each time a process appears, disappears,
or when its current status change.

France, 1/6/2003 – LUTEUS releases an innovative
product for managing SYSLOG messages in distributed Information
Originally, the Syslog server included in LORIOTPRO was not
designed to sustain a high incoming Syslog flow of messages.
This time is over with our SYSLOG COLLECTOR
solution. This Program is intended to collect huge amount
of Syslog messages even in WAN network architecture where
bandwidth is a matter of concern. It will be very efficient
in routing or security environment where logging is necessary.
For example, in firewall architecture based on PIX from Cisco,
tracing the flow generates a huge quantity of Syslog messages.
Our solution could handle it and manage this flow according
to predefined policy.
Syslog Collector concept is based on three components: Syslog
collector Agents, Syslog Collector manager and a LoriotPro
The agents are responsible of filtering Syslog messages and
of taking actions on specified conditions. Actions are either
to archive them on local files, to forward them as events
messages to the LoriotPro console or to forward them as Syslog
messages to another Syslog server
The Syslog Collector Manager
is a program running on top of LoriotPro (Plug-in).It is used
to define filter lists and to download them onto the agents.
All communications between agents and manager are secured
by authentication. The upload of logging file stored on the
agent to the manager could be performed in a compressed mode,
sparing bandwidth of slow WAN link. Naturally, agents have
to be judiciously disseminated in the network architecture
regarding the network topology and close to the devices generating
Syslog Messages. Associated to the agent and to the LoriotPro
Console, a browser helps the administrator to easily find
specific messages in multiple huge log files by setting filtering
conditions. Like LoriotPro, the Sylog Collector agent and
manager are fully graphical and run under Microsoft Windows.
Each agent should have a valid unique license key to work.
Licenses are sold 250 Euros each.

France, 27/1/2003 – New LoriotPro Plugins are
available at www.loriotpro.com. These Plugins add several
advanced features to your preferred SNMP supervisor.
Among these new Plugin you will find:
The Trace Route Discover Plugin that displays a table view
and a concentric graphical view of the router hops between
LoriotPro and an IP address with frequently refreshed Round
Trip Time statistics.
The Bulk Threshold Control Plugin that gives you the possibility
of setting hundreds of thresholds on SNMP objects in few clicks.
Administrators do not longer have to set one by one the thresholds
on the sensitive indicators of their Network or Information
The Bulk TCP Poller allows you to monitor network application
(TCP ports) availaibility. This Plugin perform this test for
you at regular intervals and sends an alarm if a wrong Statut
is dedected. The power of this Plugin allows you to monitor
hundreds of Hosts and for each of them, hundreds of TCP ports
(applications) with various alarm severity.This Plugin could
also be useful to check the permissiveness or laxisme of a
Firewall and to warns you if a security breach is opened.
The Spanning Tree Bridge Map Plugin is a complex and powerful
add-on program that displays on a graphical map the current
status of spanning tree bridges or switches. A really useful
software for managing spanning
tree architectures where availability and redundancy are key
The Cisco Config Surveyor Plugin
keeps and eye for you on the configuration of your Cisco Devices
by checking their current configuration. The Plugin notifies
you when changes occurs and performs automatic backup for
The Interface Monitor Plugin displays in one screen the most
important statistics of a network Interface. The inbound and
outbound percentage of load are displayed on a line graph,
peak values are memorized. A threshold could be set on this
percentage of load and send alarm when reached.
The Node To Node Path Trace Plugin displays on the InterNetwork
graphical map the path between two IP nodes. When you have
mesh network with multiple paths this Plugin is a great help
to understand how routing is performed and to find errors
in routing tables and router configurations.
