NetDecision Network Manager is a network monitoring software that provides automatic discovery of your IP network, groups your devices into a graphical topology and monitors devices in real-time.
With NetDecision Network Manager organizations can collect real-time data from across the IT infrastructure, consolidate this data into a real-time management front end, analyze the data and automate responses, and inform other key individuals, systems, and processes immediately about service-affecting IT problems.
Network Discovery is a tool that allows Network Manager to scan the existing network and build the logical topology that represents it. Network Discovery is useful for scanning networks of all sizes. In the end it will produce a topology consisting of Routers, Switches, Servers, Printers and other network devices found on your network.
The typical network topology built by NetDecision Network Manager is shown below. First screenshot illustrates top level of the resulting topology.
By drilling down you will see hosts and printers physically connected to a specific switch.
NetDecision Network Manager performs device monitoring in 4 different ways:
- Device status (up/down) polling using ICMP ping;
- Continuous monitoring of device parameters via SNMP with support for thresholds and smart handling (polling rules);
- Listening for SNMP notifications (traps and informs) from network devices;
- Listening for SNMP notifications coming from NetDecision script agents.
NetDecision Network Manager provides variety of display elements allowing user to put all important information onto operator display in the most convenient way.
NetDecision Network Manager allows you to set up custom attributes to be monitored in real-time.
Each attribute’s value can be analyzed with rules that control Network Manager's response to certain values of custom attributes, obtained through agent polling. There are 2 types of rules, processing and conditional. Processing rules are designed to simply execute script(s) whenever an attribute's value changes. Conditional rules, in contrary, perform their action only if new attribute's value meets certain conditions.
NetDecision Performance Vision provides out-of-the-box graphs and dashboards for CPU utilization, memory usage, disk space usage, interface utilization, service response times, interface errors etc. This helps users gain better visibility into the performance of servers, routers and switches and the overall network.
NetDecision Performance Vision is an easy to use software that monitors network parameters via SNMP or using custom scriptable polling agents. It allows you to quickly and easily set up and run a monitoring station for networks.
NetDecision Performance Vision monitors network and bandwidth usage as well as various other network parameters like memory usage and CPU utilization, providing system administrators with live readings and periodical usage trends to optimize the efficiency, layout, and setup of leased lines, switches, routers, firewalls, servers, and other network components.
The Performance Vision makes network performance monitoring effortless to set up and users can quickly get live, daily, weekly, monthly, annual or custom period graphs out-of-the-box.
