LAN Monitoring

LAN is more complex to monitor when compared to a WAN. A typical LAN comprises of devices of various types such as router, switch, AP, servers, printers. Each of these devices need to monitored at varied intervals and the performance metrics that need to be monitored also varies. The complexity in monitoring them doubles further if the fact that each of these devices are manufactured by multiple vendors is taken into account. Further some enterprises need visibility into the subnet level.

It is for this reason that  OpManager comes pre-equipped with a set of powerful and robust LAN monitoring features. With these features, OpManager not only helps you in ensuring continuous availability of your LANs but also provides you an in-depth analysis of the performance of your LAN networks.

Visualize your LAN for better monitoring 

LAN monitoring visualization
OpManager comes with a host of network visualization and network diagram tools which you can use to visualize your LAN in real-time. These network diagrams range from Layer2Maps - which provides a visual representation of your LAN topology to business views and floor views.

The network diagrams help you to gain an in-depth understanding of your LANs and also provides you a visual interface which you can use to monitor and manage your LANs more effectively. 

Catch network problems well in advance using multiple thresholds

OpManager re-defines LAN fault monitoring by enabling you to set multiple thresholds. With the multiple thresholds feature, you can get alerted when the parameters that are being monitored cross a pre-defined limit. The alerts are classified into 3 levels - Attention, trouble & critical. When the parameters that are being monitored cross the value defined for each of these alert levels, an alert notification will be triggered through either the web console / email / SMS / phone.

LAN subnet montioring  - efficently monitor the subnets in your LAN

LAN monitoring subnets
OpManger allows you to classify the devices in your LANs based on their subnets. The devices, once categorized, are available under their corresponding subnets under the subnets tab in the inventory

Classsifying devices based on their subnets provides you greater flexibility in monitoring and managing the devices in your LAN. Once a LAN device is grouped into a particular subnet, you can click on the subnet and do the following :

  • View detailed information about all the devices under a subnet including their status and number of connected interfaces.
  • Want to view more details about a device in a subnet ? Just click on the device and you will be taken to the it's device snapshot page.
  • Manage the devices under a subnet, generate reports for a specific set of devices under a subnet, change monitoring intervals , associate devices templates and credentials to either individual devices or a group of devices under a particular subnet - all from a single screen.
  • No need to classify devices into subnets manually - just specify the netmask during device discovery and OpManager will automatically do the classification.
