CommandCenter NOC 6.0
CommandCenter NOC makes it easy to introduce an integrated network monitoring toolset that will improve your network.
Here are some key features of "CommandCenter NOC":
Provides ability to set performance thresholds. Events are generated upon when "High" thresholds are exceeded or when the values fall below "Low" thresholds. You have complete control over these thresholds including their high or low value, their re-arm values, and the number of consecutive data samples which must be exceeded to trigger the generation of an event.
Network, systems, servers, service fault monitoring:
Agentlessly monitors for faults on your heterogeneous multi vendor network. The typical network might include a Cisco, HP, or Juniper router; Checkpoint or SonicWall Firewall; Dell, IBM, HP or Sun server running Linux or Microsoft operating system; running database and web services. CommandCenter NOC is uniquely designed to monitor your complete network. Application/service pollers are available to generate synthetic transactions to simulate actual user activity to alert you of faults such as web site not severing pages or database is not processing transactions. Windows WMI is used to detect faults in your Windows systems such as service stopped. SNMP is leveraged to monitor your network devices and non-windows servers to alert you of faults such as a port is down or a fan has failed. CommandCenter NOC leverages its understanding of the network topology and its correlation engine to present the root fault and suppress secondly events. You can leverage and deploy these three available options in any combination.
Network, systems, servers, service performance monitoring:
Agentlessly collects and reports on the performance of your heterogeneous multi vendor network by leveraging the synthetic transactions, WMI, SNMP, Netflow, and Traffic monitoring. Ability to set performance thresholds to alert of performance changes on Windows/Linux/Unix systems and network devices. This data is transformed into information by a common database and reporting engine that produces informative graphs so trends on the following can be easily identified.
Start/stop/auto-restart windows services:
Consolidated access to understand the current state of the services on one or all of your windows systems. The ability to click to start and stop services or set services to automatically restart if that is the standard response to the service fail.
Preloaded SNMP MIBs with load your own option:
The CommandCenter NOC allows you to handle traps from your network's devices as normal CommandCenter NOC events. You can configure severities and notifications for these custom traps. You can View All MIBs and see the SNMP MIBs that are currently supported or you can install a MIB if you want to add support for its traps.
Built-in and custom application/service pollers:
Using industry standard protocols and ports, CommandCenter NOC can automatically check the status of services on the network at user-specified intervals. Administrators can enable or disable specific pollers and define new custom pollers. Built-in pollers include those that poll for the following services: Citrix, DHCP, DNS, Domino, FTP, HTTP, HTTPS, ICMP, IMAP, Informix, LDAP, MySQL, Oracle, POP3, Postgres, SMTP, SNMP, SQLServer, SSH, Sybase, TFTP, Telnet.
Easy point and click web interface:
A simple, intuitive web interface allows access from anywhere with the need for extensive training or a client.
Consolidated event engine (Windows, Network, Syslog, & Security):
Events are records of significant occurrences in your network, on your systems, or within your management appliance. By viewing events via the Events Browser, you can gain insight as to what is going on in your network, whether it is network management, Windows management, or intrusion detection information you seek. The Web Console is designed to make it easy for you to quickly navigate to the events in which you are interested. Once there, a suite of search, filter, and sort tools will allow you to manipulate the events you wish to see, and quickly get down to the specific subset of events that outline the network situation you wish to further explore. If you wish to search for particular events, you can either search for events using the Event Text: search box, or by clicking on Advanced Search, which will redirect you to a page populated with various search and filter criteria.
Per device custom thresholds:
Provides ability to set per node performance thresholds for alerting.
Alert via email, SMS, pager:
When important events are detected, users may receive a notice, a descriptive message sent automatically to a pager, an email address, or both. Once a notice is sent, it is considered outstanding until someone acknowledges receipt of the notice via the Notification interface. If the event that triggered the notice was related to managed network devices or systems, the Network/Systems group will be notified, one by one, with a notice sent to the next member on the list only after 15 minutes has elapsed since the last message was sent. This progression through the list, or escalation, can be stopped at any time by acknowledging the notice. Note that this is not the same as acknowledging the event which triggered the notice. If all members of the group have been notified and the notice has not been acknowledged, the notice will be escalated to the Management group, where all members of that group will be notified at once with no 15 minute escalation interval.
Integrated troubleshooting tools:
From the CommandCenter NOC web interface, a suite of tools is available for network troubleshooting, including Ping Host, Port Test, Trace Route to Host, Profile Route to Host, Domain Resolution, and SNMP Walk
