|SNMP Enterprise Edition|
SNMPc Enterprise Edition employs multiple components running on different computers, and uses distributed database technology to provide a high performance platform regardless of the size or configuration of your network.
Key Product Features
SNMPc Enterprise Edition supports management of multiple distributed domains. Each server can import the map of one or more remote servers. Alarms are automatically propagated from "slave" servers to "master" servers. A full peer-to-peer architecture is supported where each server can operate in both slave and master roles simultaneously. Domain management can be used to implement backup management and "manager of managers" schemes.
Multiple Login Consoles
SNMPc Enterprise Edition provides both local and remote access using the Remote Console component. You can run the remote console application from any Windows workstation using a local or remote TCP/IP connection. All SNMPc Enterprise functions are available from remote consoles. Each console can have complete read-write access, independent of other console sessions. SNMPc Enterprise Edition includes one remote console license. The Remote Access Extension allows unlimited Remote Console users.
Polling Agents perform discovery of locally attached network devices. Each Polling Agent uses discovery filters, based on network addresses to limit the scope of the discovered topology. The discovery algorithm determines the device type, its network attachments, and supported protocols, including IP, SNMP, Telnet, and HTTP (WEB).
Polling Agents monitor the status and alarm thresholds for discovered devices using ICMP and SNMP requests. Polling Agents also save long term MIB statistics in a local database. Status changes and alarms are forwarded to SNMPc Enterprise Servers. SNMPc Enteprise includes one local polling agent. SNMPc Enterprise includes one Remote Poller license. The Remote Access Extension allows unlimited Remote Pollers..
SNMPc provides local user access in the Workgroup and Enterprise editions. Additionally, the Enterprise Edition supports remote access over a high-speed connection with the Remote Console. You can run the remote console application from any Windows workstation using a local or remote TCP/IP connection. All SNMPc Enterprise functions are available from remote consoles. Each console can have complete read-write access, independent of other console sessions. The SNMPc Enterprise Basic System includes one remote console license. With the Remote Access Extension option you can simultaneously use an unlimited number of Remote Consoles on multiple systems.
The SNMPc Remote Access Extension supports a JAVA based remote console. The JAVA console can be used from any Internet or Intranet connected computer, including Apple, Linux and Windows systems. The SNMPc Java Console is optimized for low speed WAN lines, making it well suited for use by outsourced Network Service and Help Desk personnel.
Basic functionality includes topology map displays, event log views, and real-time MIB table/graph displays. Long-term trend reports can be viewed after selection with a calendar control. Also included is a JAVA proxy Telnet application for configuration of Cisco routers and other devices.
Scheduled Printed and WEB Reports
SNMPc Enterprise automatically generates scheduled daily, weekly, and monthly statistic reports. Report formats include graph, bar chart, distribution, and summary, and can be exported to a variety of destinations, including printers, files, or a WEB server.
SNMPc Enterprise report setup is very simple. After selecting a group of nodes and a MIB profile, then the reporting style, destination, and schedule, SNMPc Enterprise automatically programs all remote polling agents. You can use the included TrendView application or a WEB browser to view reports from any workstation.
SNMPc Enterprise can automatically export all saved long-term statistics to industry standard ODBC databases. Use familiar tools such as Seagate Crystal Reports or Microsoft Access to generate customized trend reports.
Saving long term statistics is of little use if the result is mountains of datato peruse. SNMPc Enterprise helps you find interesting traffic patterns before they become problems.
SNMPc Enterprise can search for the top set of variables polled by a variety of criteria, including greatest rate of increase, greatest value, and greatest deviation from baseline. Using searches in scheduled reports shows the problem areas in your network, before polling generates threshold alarms.
Once history polling is setup, Polling Agents monitor all variables for a learning period and calculate a baseline for typical patterns during each hour of a week. Thereafter, the Polling Agents compare the actual polled data to the baseline and generate alarms when variables deviate excessively from the baseline. Polling Agents automatically adjust baselines as traffic patterns change. You can also manually configure alarm thresholds for any polled variable.
Service Level Polling
SNMPc Enterprise Edition automatically discovers WEB, FTP, SMTP, and TELNET services, as well as two user-selectable TCP ports. SNMPc Enterprise Edition saves response time and percent failure information for all polled services and for regular Ping/SNMP status polling.
After your services are discovered, SNMPc Enterprise Edition will regularly poll to detect if they go up or down. This information is critical to maximizing uninterrupted access to important Internet services. With the importance of the WEB in today's business environment, you need to be the first to know if your WEB server is unavailable.
Along with real-time service status, SNMPc Enterprise also provides WEB-based Availability Reports. From verifying your ISP's quality of service to maximizing your Internet customer's satisfaction, SNMPc Enterprise Edition Availability Reports give you the edge. And if your systems need to be upgraded, SNMPc Enterprise Edition Availability Reports will save you money by directing resources to where they are most needed.
Advanced Network Mapping
SNMPc supports a multi-level hierarchical map. Each hierarchy can represent cities, buildings, or subnetworks. Imported bitmaps of geographic maps or floor plans, along with manual or automatic network placement, lets you create a layout that closely matches the actual network.
SNMPc can automatically lay out each map network as a tree, ring, or snaked bus topology. Each map object uses a device specific or user selected icon, and the object color indicates the device status. You can start any device specific application by double clicking map icons.
The Map Navigation Tool Window displays the map as a tree for direct selection of objects. The Navigation tree also displays the worst status of each subnet to quickly locate failing devices.
The map window Full Zoom feature automatically moves and zooms the view so that all devices are always visible in the window. The Pan/Zoom feature lets you select a region to zoom into from the complete set of devices in a view.
Real-time MIB Displays
SNMPc supports real-time displays of MIB variable data in tabular or graphical format. Table or graph displays can include multiple devices and variables from different standard and private MIBs, including derived expressions such as Utilization, Volume, and Percent Errors. You can select any variable cells, table rows or columns, for graphical display. You can modify and set any MIB variable directly from a Table display using "in-place" editing.
The Graph Display shows data as a line graph, pie chart, bar chart, or distribution. The Graph display also shows the minimum, maximum, and average values for each variable.
SNMPc changes the color of map objects and performs other actions based on received events. Event Action Filters select the action to take when an event occurs. SNMPc can ignore or log an event, set the event priority, forward the event to other managers as an SNMP Trap, forward the event to an email address or alphanumeric pager, display an Alarm dialog box, or execute an application program. Event Filters can limit the number of similar events generated within a period of time, or completely ignore duplicate events.
You can view events using the Log Tool Window. Each log view shows current or historical events for one or more devices and event priorities.
Notify!connect integrates with SNMPc to alert you whenever an important event occurs. SNMPc will send the entire event log entry to your alphanumeric pager. Notify!Connect is included free with SNMPc Enterprise and WorkGroup editions.
SNMPc supports MIB expressions to show derived information such as line Utilization. You can use any of the predefined MIB Expressions, or create your own, to automatically view interesting information in a format you can understand. You can add MIB expressions MIB source files, or create them dynamically with the MIB Expression Calculator.
The built-in MIB compiler accepts any MIB in ASN.1 format. Many standard and Enterprise Specific MIBs are preinstalled and ready to use. Once compiled, you can use MIB definitions with any SNMPc NT MIB functions, including the table or graph displays and long term statistics polling.
You can dynamically create custom tables using the MIB navigation tool window. Custom tables can be subsets of existing MIB tables, or can include variables from tables in different MIBs. You can use MIB Expressions to include derived data types such as Utilization, Volume, and Percent Errors.
User defined custom menus directly perform SNMPc commands without having to select MIB objects. Custom menus can display a MIB table; edit, graph or chart any set of MIB variables; set an SNMP MIB variable; or run an application program. SNMPc automatically enables or disables Custom Menus depending on the protocol attributes supported by the selected objects.
Multi-Vendor Graphical Device Views
he HubView and BitView scripting applications display a graphical image for multi-slot routers, bridges, and hubs. Device specific custom menus and mouse commands perform SNMPc commands on the selected slot or port, or other graphical element.
SNMPc includes device scripts for all devices that conform to standard MIBs and for dozens of private MIB devices, including Cisco, Bay, and 3com devices. You can easily develop HubView or BitView scripts to graphically manage any SNMP device.
RMON User Interface
SNMPc includes support for any RMON-I probe. You can configure and view data from any of the RMON groups. The Matrix program shows Host conversations in a matrix graph. Packet capture filters use protocol or application type and source or destination addresses. Captured packets can be saved in industry standard formats.
SNMPc includes a general purpose MIB browser for displaying and setting individual MIB variables. The MIB Browser can also read all variables supported by a device and export the variable names and values to a file.
SNMPc includes Tftp server and client applications, and a Bootp server application, to aid in downloading IP addresses and executable images into devices. SNMPc also includes a copy of the Notify!Connect pager notification application from ExMachina. Notify!Connect works with any numeric or alphanumeric pager to immediately alert you when important events occur.
SNMPc Programming Interface
The SNMPc architecture uses a simple DLL based API that provides complete distributed management capabilities to any application. This API has a small number of common functions that operate on instances of object classes. Each object has a set of attributes that you can read and modify.
Object classes map onto functional groups, including Session, Map, Log, SNMP, MIB, Event Filter, Custom Menus, and others. Classes also exist for creating high level objects such as map views, log views, MIB tables, and MIB graphs.
You can easily create programs that run as Polling Agent, Server, or Console components.
WinSNMP Programming Interface
SNMPc supports the WinSNMP de-facto standard API for SNMP based programming under Windows. SNMPc includes a runtime DLL and trap receiving program, as well as the include files, libraries and documentation required to develop WinSNMP applications.
DDE Programming Interface
SNMPc also supports the SNMPc Windows DDE based API. You can use this API from Visual Basic programs and from many standard Windows programs such as Microsoft Excel. Commands can query the Map and Mib databases, perform low-level MIB operations, download MIB tables, and execute SNMPc commands. HubView and BitView were both developed using the DDE API. Many previous SNMPc OEMs and resellers have also developed DDE based applications for previous SNMPc that will run under SNMPc.
