Did you know that PRTG can test your Exchange Server 24/7?
PRTG will tell you there's a problem before your colleagues call and complain about their email being slow. And it does more than just a "ping" test. This is how it works: PRTG's Email Round Trip Sensor allows you to monitor Exchange Server availability and performance and also ensure email end-to-end delivery. It checks whether your Exchange Server is delivering emails to the outside world properly and whether it is receiving properly, too. In addition, it provides you with timespan metrics of the entire send and receive process. Watch this tutorial by Torsten, Technical Support Engineer at Paessler and get the whole picture in only 12 minutes. If you have any further questions please feel free to give us a call, or email paessler@sofsol.co.nz.

Wearable Device to Detect Pollution
Air quality is important and for some countries this is becoming an issue due to the rise in pollution. To keep an eye on the quality of air around you, reliable data is usually required. A device is being created that will suck up a bit of air around you and use an optical sensor to count individual pollutant particles, including volatile organic compounds, ammonia and nitrogen dioxide. The device can be clipped on your bag, belt or bike and has separate sensors to measure temperature and humidity. With a smartphone app, this will enable you to track your personal exposure to air and will suggest ways to lessen the risk, with the device launching sometime mid next year.
