- Performance and fault management
Orion NPM provides comprehensive performance, fault management, and network availability tools to ensure that your network is always running at peak performance. Via a web interface, Orion NPM gives you a unified view into the performance of thousands of nodes and interfaces on your network. From a single web page, you can monitor performance management metrics from any SNMP-enabled device, including routers, switches, firewalls, and servers. Commonly monitored metrics include bandwidth utilization, packet loss, latency, errors, discards, and quality of service. With Orion NPM, you get the information you need to quickly fix issues before your users ever have a chance to call the help desk.
- Do-it-yourself deployment
Deploying Orion NPM is a simple three-step process. First, install and configure Orion NPM using a simple wizard interface. Next, let Orion NPM automatically discover your network. Finally, begin monitoring your network for fault and performance issues. You'll be done in less than an hour. No consultants required. Even better, with Orion NPM's intuitive web interface, you won't need to attend training classes, read books with large animals on the cover, or pour through manuals to start being productive with Orion NPM from day one.
- Advanced alerting
Orion NPM enables you to quickly and easily configure powerful network alert engines to respond to hundreds of different network scenarios, including multiple condition checks. These network alerts help you recognize and correct issues before your users experience performance degradation or availability issues. With alerting support for correlated events and sustained conditions, Orion NPM ensures that you don't get paged at 3 am unless there is a critical issue. Additionally, Orion NPM can automatically escalate network alerts until a problem is resolved.
- Report writer
Orion NPM's advanced reporting engine enables you to quickly generate custom network reports that can be printed or viewed on the web. Shipping with 49 built-in reports, Orion NPM makes it easy to report on performance data over specific time periods or by network segment. A simple interface makes it easy to customize these built-in network reports and allows the creation of completely customized reports using SQL commands. Orion NPM's reports can even be modified to limit the information contained in the report by user profile, making it easy to generate reports for specific departments or recipients.
- Role-based access control
Orion Network Performance Monitor (NPM) allows you to establish unique accounts and specify which types of information are displayed within the Orion interface for a particular department, group, or user. This ensures that only the people who need to view specific information have access to it, providing an increased level of internal security. For example, Orion NPM can be configured so that the server team only sees the servers on the network, while the Texas IT group has a view limited to the geography for which they are responsible.
Orion is a comprehensive fault and performance management platform that scales with the exponential growth of your network and expands with your network management needs. Providing extensive visibility into the health of network devices, servers, and applications, Orion ensures that you have the real-time information you need to keep your systems running at peak performance all the time. Orion also measures performance SLAs for key services across the network infrastructure, so that you can hold service providers to their promises. Plus, it doesn't take a team of consultants and months of unpleasant surprises to get Orion up and running. Orion can be installed and collecting data in literally minutes.
Via a cutting-edge, customizable Web console, Orion gives you a unified view into the performance of thousands of nodes and interfaces on your network, serving up detailed metrics like availability, bandwidth utilization, and interface traffic for routers, switches, servers, and any other SNMP-enabled devices. You can drill down to see exactly what's happening with each and every system on the global network and get the data you need to quickly isolate, diagnose, and resolve problems.
