ManageEngine OPManager License
In addition to network and server monitoring, bandwidth analysis, configuration management, and fault management are all features of the network management tool ManageEngine OpManager. Every size of company can use this licensed solution.
Users of the licensed ManageEngine OPManager can keep tabs on the response times, traffic, and availability of a variety of devices, including servers, routers, switches, and virtual machines, as well as performance metrics and packet loss. OpManager automatically notifies relevant users via text message or email when any equipment is down.
The licensed ManageEngine OpManager uses sFlow, IPFIX, jFlow, and NetFlow to analyze network traffic patterns and the bandwidth used by various devices and applications in order to configure traffic to balance the system. Users can view performance metrics and bandwidth usage on a single screen thanks to this.
Windows and Linux operating systems are supported by OpManager. OpManager is also accessible through specialized mobile apps for Android and iOS devices. Prices are one-time charges. Online forums and telephone support are available.
ManageEngine OPManager key features
Distributed network management
As the world learned to breathe again, many people comfortably adapted to the hybrid work model. Additionally, growing businesses are expanding and expanding their operations in different regions to better manage their networks.
When your business is spread across multiple regions, has a decentralized network architecture, multiple offices, remote working, and a cloud-based data repository, it’s important to gain deep visibility. Distributed networks are interconnected but independent. The problem with this is that the network is actually distributed.
Not every organization can set up an IT department in every diverse geographic location. In such cases, central management must be effectively supported by network monitoring tools. Monitoring becomes especially challenging when network inconsistency and changing requirements further degrade scalability. To manage a distributed network ecosystem, an effective network monitoring tool that accommodates the hybrid working model is essential.
Proactive Incident Reporting
Only a limited number of network monitors have an intelligent notification system. Notifications help network administrators understand network status by providing timely warnings of network violations. Choosing a tool that provides custom notification profiles will help you stay connected through different modes such as SMS, emails, runtimes, system commands, sound alerts, SYSLOG, log tickets and more. A tool that helps you proactively eliminate performance bottlenecks is essential.
Elimination of network blind spots to prevent downtime
Network downtime, blind spots, threshold violations, performance hogs, and anything network-related is the responsibility of network administrators. It is imperative to track all performance metrics 24/7. Some metrics require regular observation, while others simply require regular monitoring. The part of the network not configured for monitoring becomes a blind spot.
Large blind spots, in turn, obscure the purpose of monitoring and can lead network administrators to disaggregate huge performance data and arrive at incorrect operational predictions. A network monitor with automatic device detection and adaptive threshold fixes a bad network configuration.
Network growth over time is one of the most important factors to consider when preparing the framework for a network-dependent organization. Planning capacity and growth are imperative because networks are not designed for constants. It is not enough that the network works smoothly at first. Planning capacity is essential to ensure continuity. It is essential to develop a network strategy in advance, because you will have to modify the whole infrastructure if you plan to do anything else later. A network monitoring tool like the licensed ManageEngine OPManager that produces effective capacity forecasts is essential.
Understanding Network Diagrams
Network diagrams are another effective way to visualize the network. They provide a complete overview of all components present in the respective environment. Using network diagrams as a guide makes it easier to implement new changes, such as restarting or revising the entire network. These network diagrams save time and money by avoiding frequent network interruptions or downtime. Network diagrams serve this purpose.
Since new devices are added every day, network schedules need to be updated from time to time. This is an intense effort when the network is growing exponentially. It is important to be able to create a custom network diagram rather than following a fixed template. This ensures that you can design complete and detailed diagrams that accurately represent the structure of your organization. Try the demo version and check the compatibility of the network monitoring software before choosing the tool for your organization.
Adaptation to merged surveillance
It is crucial to keep your network balanced between the two types of monitoring. With active monitoring tools like the licensed ManageEngine OPManager, all devices in the environment are monitored in real time and bottlenecks are immediately resolved. However, passive monitoring creates a copy of the network architecture and simulates performance bottlenecks to immunize the network against future threats.
It is important to maintain harmony between the two types as this ensures that the network is always up and running. Achieving this balance is a major challenge in network monitoring, with organizations struggling to choose the best monitoring for their network. But the answer to this is to choose a network monitor that supports both types of monitoring.
Establishing performance benchmarks
Effective network monitoring starts with setting a baseline. Scaling your network-dependent business is made easier because you can better understand its status if you understand the fundamental network performance. If your network performs worse than the benchmark, your network is sinking. This makes it easier for the network administrator to monitor the daily performance of the network. Determining the number of iterations required to set up the performance baseline is one of the main challenges of network monitoring because a network performance baseline doesn’t have a set range. Finding what truly works for your organization requires a series of tests, and the problem must be solved patiently and iteratively.
Gain more comprehensive network visibility
Network visibility sheds light on network components, helping the administrator evaluate network performance. As a result of proper monitoring, network administrators gain a better understanding of performance metrics such as availability, traffic patterns, latency, bandwidth, packet loss, and more. Lack of good visibility exposes potential vulnerabilities to threats. A solution that provides an improved network viewing experience like ManageEngine OPManager helps organize your network in an easy-to-understand way. A good network monitoring tool with good visibility will quickly reach half of its goal.
