Version 9 of Telcomanager’s network and IT environment monitoring solutions has been released to the market. This version has brought several tools and features that will boost the monitoring of your IP network and IT infrastructure. In this article, we will address the importance of network monitoring capabilities.
The importance of technology for companies is undeniable. Investments in infrastructure and applications continue to grow, transforming IT (information technology) into the protagonist of the evolution of the business. However, while investments ensure the ability to support the company’s operations, the IT environment becomes increasingly complex and challenging for its maintenance.
Thus, continuous monitoring of the IT environment is crucial to ensure its performance, according to the defined parameters, as well to identify failures with agility, ensuring the detection of performance change. Environment monitoring involves monitoring the entire network, applications, and related devices.
The input of the monitoring systems is data collection, and the 3 Telcomanager monitoring systems (TRAFip, SLAview and CFGtool) work with different types of collection to ensure total control and visibility of the IT environment.
TRAFip is a traffic analysis system that allows you to know the origin, destination, and content of each bit that travels on the network. The system has graphs, reports, and alarms that will provide full access to all network traffic information.
Through the data coming from NetFlow, TRAFip has its raw material that allows the stratified visualization of the network traffic. Besides NetFlow, TRAFip as a multivendor system, is compatible with other variations of IP flow protocols.
SLAview is a fault and performance monitoring system that provides visibility into applications and the IT environment. Through SLAview, the manager has access to graphs, dashboards, reports, maps, and alarms.
SLAview’s main collection medium is the SNMP protocol. However, other collections may also be made via ICMP or by custom scripts. Through the collection profiles, the system guarantees extreme freedom for the user in relation to what to monitor.
CFGtool is a configuration management system. Its main features are configuration versioning, bulk provisioning, compliance reports, and configuration change alarms.
For CFGtool to import the settings of the monitored devices, SSH or Telnet access is required. In version 9, CFGtool has increased its scope regarding what configuration it can store and version. It is now possible to collect and version other types of configurations, not limited to just startup and running config anymore, such as versioning your routes in the routing table. In this way, specific configurations, in addition to global ones, can be versioned and stored.
In this sense, there is no doubt about the importance of investing in network management. Thus, bringing not only benefits to the visibility of the network, but also being a way to ensure greater governance.
With this in mind, Telcomanager , in the market since 2002, and Latin America’s leader in the industry of software network management, with a unique and innovative methodology, provides intelligent data monitoring solutions that will provide stratified view of traffic, allowing your company to track the main aspects of its network in real time.
