In the analysis of data it is important to have the certification of the quality of such data, for this reason it is also important to utilize software and tools that enable the access to such information in a reliable and dynamic manner. For the examples below we will utilize functionalities available in the TRAFip and SLAview.
The systems of monitoring count with several outputs that provide the possibility of obtaining information about the computer network. Yet, the reports are able to provide data with even more depth about the most important aspects of your network, and the best of all, they can be automatized.
There is a variety of reports that can be extracted. On the following we resume some examples:
Top N Reports
The Top N report provides consolidated statistics for any metric configured in the system. The report is demonstrated in the format of a raking where all the objects are positioned according to the chosen metric. One example would be to observe the applications with the highest traffic in the network inside a specified period.
Reports of Projection
The report of projection has the capacity of predicting the evolution of any curve and inform the expected value for a period in the future. It is also possible to point out a threshold and predicting if and when this edge will be reached. In this manner, being crucial for a proactive approach in the usage of the resources of the network.
Reports of Raw Data
The report of raw data provides detailed statistics about the flows collected by the TRAFip. The report is a representation of the content of the flow and its identification fields. Therefore, enabling deeper analysis about all the details of each portion of the traffic which passes through the network. One example of use would be the investigation of abnormal traffic, where from the report it is possible to visualize to where it goes, from where it comes and the content of the traffic.
TEMPLATES AND AUTOMATIZATION
For all the reports quoted above it is possible to create a template. In this manner you can configure the report only once and save it as a template. Consequently, executing the same report several times without the need to configure all the fields again. For every template it is possible to adjust the permissions related to the users that are able to visualize or modify the template.
Besides facilitating the execution of the reports, it is possible to automatize the execution of the templates. With this, the user can configure the report to be executed periodically (daily, weekly or monthly), with the analysis based on the chosen period and delivered automatically via email or to a FTP server.
Dynamic and automatic reports will provide valuable gains in the management of the network. Helping in the management based in data and proactive approach.
In this sense, there are no doubts about the importance of investing in network management. Therefore, we are able to bring not only benefits for the visibility of the infrastructure, but also a way of guaranteeing crucial information for the foresight of problems.
Thinking about that, Telcomanager, leader in Latin America in the sector of software for network management, since 2002 in the market with a unique and innovative methodology, makes available smart solutions for the monitoring of data in order to provide complete visibility to the infrastructure of the client, allowing your Company to accompany the main aspects of your network.
