The quick turnaround time in attending to a fault is the key to effective network fault management. Automating fault remediation to the possible extent leaves you with productive time to attend to other critical faults that need your physical presence and manual intervention. OpManager takes that one extra leap of packaging auto-fault-remediation features that drastically reduces downtime of network resources and also ensures quick resolutions to several faults.
Fault management is the component of network management concerned with detecting, isolating and resolving problems. Properly implemented, network fault management can keep connectivity, applications and services running at an optimum level, provide fault tolerance and minimize downtime. Platforms or tools designed specifically for this purpose are called fault management systems.
On the other hand, finding faults and intimating them to the on-field team only after the outage occurs serves no purpose. By the time the network admins put their hard efforts into locating, analyzing and resolving the issue, there might be definite productivity loss and operational failure. An ideal fault management system should be able to detect a potential outage even before it occurs and take preventive actions before it impacts end-users. One step ahead, it should even automate L1 and L2 troubleshooting tasks, allowing network admins to focus on other critical tasks.
OpManager's fault management system performs the fault remediation process in an automated step-by-step fashion as below:
Fault detection: The system discovers that service delivery has been interrupted or its performance has degraded.
Fault diagnosis and isolation: The source of the fault, such as a component failure or power outage, and its location in the network topology are identified.
Event correlation and aggregation: A single fault can cause multiple alarms, fault management systems often group related events for administrators and provide a root cause analysis.
Restoration of service: The network management system automatically executes any preconfigured scripts or programs to get services up and running as soon as possible.
Problem resolution: The source of the fault is corrected, repaired or replaced. Depending on the cause, manual intervention may be required.
IT Workflow Automation: OpManager is easily the one-of-a-kind solution with a built-in Workflow robot that lets you automate several fault-remedial tasks. With under 100 workflow checks and actions, you can automate several actions based on alerts while simultaneously troubleshooting the alert for the root cause. For instance, you can move a device to a maintenance mode, restart a service or a server, add a note to an alarm, trigger a trouble-ticket into help desk, execute a script to correct a fault on a system, or even execute another Workflow! The possibilities, as you see, are endless. More on IT Workflow automation.
Run Program Profile: With support to plug in any program, you can configure OpManager to execute a self-healing scripts, a batch or any program that does a corrective action to remediate a fault. For instance, you can execute a simple program that throws a pop-up alert on your screen for a particular fault, or even force-restart a server of service on a system.
