MG-SOFT Net Inspector is available in four editions. Editions differ regarding the number of network devices and managed objects(*) that can be monitored, regarding the support for NetFlow/sFlow monitoring, and regarding the number of supported polling engines.

The following editions of MG-SOFT Net Inspector are available:

 Net Inspector LITE Edition
This is the entry level edition that lets you use one polling engine and enables monitoring up to 256 managed objects, but not more than 64 devices in total.
This edition does NOT support NetFlow/sFlow monitoring.
 Net Inspector WorkGroup Edition
This edition lets you use one polling engine and enables monitoring up to 2000 managed objects, but not more than 500 devices in total. It also supports NetFlow/sFlow data monitoring from up to two NetFlow/sFlow sources.
