Enterprise networks are heterogeneous. In addition to multi-tiered applications, a critical part of the infrastructure consists of network devices and other applications that are vendor specific. However, these devices normally have a Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) agent (interface) and this facilitates SNMP monitoring.
ManageEngine Applications Manager is an SNMP Monitoring tool that supports monitoring SNMP devices and monitors SNMP V1 and V2c enabled agents in an SNMP enabled application. You can load custom MIBs and receive SNMP traps from applications and devices on your network.
Applications Manager supports SNMP monitoring and allows administrators to monitor additional applications and devices. A user has to only load a MIB file, and select the SNMP OIDs that need to be monitored. Default dashboards and graphical views are created. You can also enable SNMP reporting for the selected OIDs.
You can configure alarms and set thresholds in order to get notified when a problem occurs. The instant alarms and notifications help you take quick corrective actions through e-mail, SMS, traps and executing custom scripts & MBean Operations.
ManageEngine Applications Manager also supports being an SNMP trap receiver. There is support for SNMP Traps and SNMP Informs. With this, you can consolidate all events in the network and make ManageEngine Applications Manager a central Event Console.
We are using ManageEngine╬ Applications Manager to monitor server health and availability along with database health. The alarm systems warn us ahead if the health is on its way to becoming critical. The reports help us observe the trend over a period of time. This program has helped us a lot by keeping a check on all of our systems at an affordable cost.T.J. Gainey
