Network Mapping

Automate network mapping; visualize and pinpoint network outages and performance degradation

When the number of monitored devices increases and when companies expand to multiple locations, it becomes impractical to maintain a static network map. Further, referring to a fixed network diagram in the event of a network failure or performance degradation is highly complex and an unwholesome experience.

Automate network mapping

The IT network is forever dynamic; the static network maps often fail to capture the new changes in the network. When a network fault occurs, it becomes impossible to track the affected device or business service using the static network diagrams. With OpManager’s automatic network mapping, administrators can:
  • Visualize their complete IT infrastructure.
  • Be assured of referring to the most up-to-date network maps, with periodic network scanning.
  • Construct an easy-to-view network topology map that lets one choose the network’s seed device and preferred network layout type.
  • Share network diagrams across peer groups in no time by exporting to Microsoft Visio.
Download Visio add-in:
The created network maps can be documented and shared by exporting them as XML files or to Microsoft Visio 2007.

Download Visio add-in:

Download this add-in (.Zip) for Microsoft Visio 2007. This add-in helps you export the network maps or business views from OpManager to Visio. Refer to the help documentation for details.

Pinpoint network outages and performance degradation at–a–glance

OpManager reflects the latest device and link status with color coded icons in the network maps, acting like a live Visio diagram that lets administrators:
  • Spot any network problems at-a-glimpse.
  • Quickly drill down to the problematic device or to the link from the network maps.
  • Understand relationship between the parent and the dependent devices.
  • See the intensity of the network issue identified by faithfully reproducing the network layout.
  • Prioritize network faults and start remediation actions.
