HP Network Node Manager i-series (NNMi) software provides powerful out-of-the-box capabilities to enable your network operations team to efficiently manage a network of any size.
HP NNMi provides the benefits of an enterprise-class network management solution, plus it uniquely combines scalability, low cost of ownership and intelligent automation. This combination enables enterprises of all sizes to reduce the cost of delivering high network availability. HP NNMi includes innovative technology and functionality to deliver this unique value.
New architecture drives extreme scalability
Spiral discovery enables accurate monitoring
HP NNMi incorporates a state-of-the-art nearly continuous spiral discovery process. This process uses fast node finding combined with an iterative multi-pass process for in-depth device existence configuration and connectivity discovery. This discovery process is enhanced for performance and enables accurate monitoring for other HP NNMi management components.
Event pipeline and causal engine provides deterministic root-cause analysis
HP NNMi includes new modules for automated event correlation and root-cause analysis (RCA). The module for event correlation is called the event pipeline. The event pipeline contains multiple, efficient processes that act on the event stream to correlate and condition events for the causal engine. The causal engine is a virtual machine that offers nearly continuous analysis of conditions of monitored objects. It relies on the continuous spiral discovery process, so it can adapt to topology changes. Ultimately, the causal engine provides automated and deterministic root-cause analysis (versus probabilistic RCA) to reduce mean time to repair (MTTR) and increase operator efficiency.
Exception-based management enhances productivity
HP NNMi was specifically designed to increase the productivity of network operators. The HP NNMi GUI was designed around an exception-based management paradigm, which enables you to quickly focus on priority incidents.
New web-based GUI increases efficiencyProduct Highlights
From installation to operation, HP NNMi is easy to use. For example, the HP NNMi quick start configuration wizard's guided multi-step configuration process enables rapid time-to-value for most networks. From an operational standpoint, the HP NNMi centralized GUI uses an accordion workspace, aesthetic tabular views and mouse-over windows for efficient, intuitive navigation.
