Network management is a overhaul that makes use of a diverse tools, devices and applications to aid network managers in the maintenance and supervising of large-scale computer and telecommunications networks.
The network management tools assist you in simplification, automation, and integration of the network and bring down the over all operational costs which in turn improves productivity.
Network Management System (NMS) typically admits tools for compiling data. Bigleap provides Network management solutions using Open Source tools such as OpenNMS, Nagios, etc.
Network management is the implementation of a set of functions needed for verifying, planning, allocating, deploying, organizing, and supervising network resources, allowing in performing functions such as:
Gathering network elements
Analysis and Prediction
Configuration and control of network elements
Performance and system planning management
Initial Network Planning
Cryptographic Key Distribution Authorization
Distinguished Features of Network Management
It is a cost-effective, open source solution combining Nagios with other leading open source tools.
Profile into the accessibility and performance of entire infrastructure.
Easy and cost-efficient to execute and maintain.
A single point of access for compact information from monitoring systems.
Helps network administrators track machine time period, breakdown and usage information so they can keep their operations healthy
Network elements such as interfaces on switches and routers.
Services which network resources provide such as web pages, database access, DNS, DHCP, etc.
Citrix LDAP SMTP
DHCP Microsoft Exchange SNMP
DNS Notes HTTP TCP
Domino IIOP POP3 ICMP
FTP SMB IMAP
Observance on network services (SMTP, POP3, HTTP, NNTP, PING, etc.)
Observance of host resources such as processor load, disk and memory usage, running processes, log files, etc.
Observance of environmental factors, such as temperature.
Capable of defining network host hierarchy, allowing detection of and differentiation between hosts that are down and those that are out of reach.
Contact acknowledgement when service or host problems take place and get resolved (via email, pager, or other user-defined method).
Optional step-up of host and service acknowledgement to different contact groups.
Capable of defining event managers to be run during service or host events for hands-on problem resolution.
Support for enforcing superfluous and distributed monitoring servers.
External command interface that allows rapid modifications to be made to the monitoring and notification behavior through the use of event managers, the web interface, and third-party applications.
Receptivity of host and service status across program restarts.
Scheduled downtime for subduing host and service notifications during periods of planned breakdowns.
Ability to acknowledge problems via the web interface.
