You've got a tough job. Your mission - which yes, you already chose to accept - is to deliver 100% availability of all network resources and to keep a close eye on the performance of every device, server and application in your infrastructure while, of course, everything is constantly changing. It's not easy. But if you could design a network monitoring solution to make your life easier, what would it be? Quick to set up? Elegantly simple to use? Scalable to accommodate your network growth? Supported by a global community of network engineers like you? And inexpensive?
It's not that people are psychic. People were founded by network engineers who know what it takes to manage complex networks; they pooled all of their "what if's" and designed Orion Network Performance Monitor (NPM): a comprehensive web-enabled fault, bandwidth and performance management platform that gives you broad visibility across your network.
Orion NPM enables you to quickly detect, diagnose and resolve network performance problems and outages. It offers out-of-the-box network-centric views that are designed to deliver the critical information network engineers need. And Orion NPM is an easy product to use and maintain, meaning you will spend more time actually managing networks, not supporting Orion NPM. Discover why a worldwide community of network engineers relies on Orion NPM and its expandable modules to monitor real-time statistics and the performance of their networks.
Performance and fault management
Orion NPM provides comprehensive performance, fault management, and network availability tools to ensure that your network is always running at peak performance. Via a web interface, Orion NPM gives you a unified view into the performance of thousands of nodes and interfaces on your network. From a single web page, you can monitor performance management metrics from any SNMP-enabled device, including routers, switches, firewalls, and servers. Commonly monitored metrics include bandwidth utilization, packet loss, latency, errors, discards, and quality of service. With Orion NPM, you get the information you need to quickly fix issues before your users ever have a chance to call the help desk.
Deploying Orion NPM is a simple three-step process. First, install and configure Orion NPM using a simple wizard interface. Next, let Orion NPM automatically discover your network. Finally, begin monitoring your network for fault and performance issues. You'll be done in less than an hour. No consultants required. Even better, with Orion NPM's intuitive web interface, you won't need to attend training classes, read books with large animals on the cover, or pour through manuals to start being productive with Orion NPM from day one.
Orion NPM enables you to quickly and easily configure powerful network alert engines to respond to hundreds of different network scenarios, including multiple condition checks. These network alerts help you recognize and correct issues before your users experience performance degradation or availability issues. With alerting support for correlated events and sustained conditions, Orion NPM ensures that you don't get paged at 3 am unless there is a critical issue. Additionally, Orion NPM can automatically escalate network alerts until a problem is resolved.
Orion NPM's advanced reporting engine enables you to quickly generate custom network reports that can be printed or viewed on the web. Shipping with 49 built-in reports, Orion NPM makes it easy to report on performance data over specific time periods or by network segment. A simple interface makes it easy to customize these built-in network reports and allows the creation of completely customized reports using SQL commands. Orion NPM's reports can even be modified to limit the information contained in the report by user profile, making it easy to generate reports for specific departments or recipients.
Role-based access controlProduct Highlights
Orion Network Performance Monitor (NPM) allows you to establish unique accounts and specify which types of information are displayed within the Orion interface for a particular department, group, or user. This ensures that only the people who need to view specific information have access to it, providing an increased level of internal security. For example, Orion NPM can be configured so that the server team only sees the servers on the network, while the Texas IT group has a view limited to the geography for which they are responsible.
