Configuration Change Notifications

A change in the configuration of network devices can have a huge impact on the network's performance, uptime and availability. When it comes to devices that are crucial for a network's availability, configuration change notifications prove to be a lifesaver by alerting the admin about the changes and its details. Once a configuration change in a device is detected, it is important that notifications are sent to those responsible for configuration change management in real-time.

Network Configuration Manager, which is a network configuration and change management tool (NCCM), provides efficient configuration change notifications with network configuration change management to keep you updated on all the changes that are made in your network. Network Configuration Manager leverages the Syslog messages to detect configuration changes in real-time and sends notifications.
