OpenView Network Node Manager is used to provide fault, configuration, and performance management for multivendor TCP/IP and IPX/SPX networks. You can use NNM to do the following:
- Automatically discover your network environment and allow you to monitor its status.
- Automatically draw IP or IPX topology maps based on discovered information. Discovered devices are placed in appropriate segments, networks, or internets based on the topology of the network.
- Manage any vendor device that supports the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). NNM manages both standard and enterprise-specific Management Information Base (MIB) objects.
- Include new enterprise-specific Internet MIBs in NNM's MIB. Once you have loaded the new MIB module on the management station, you can access any of the MIB objects defined in that MIB module.
- Get and set values for Internet MIB objects using a point-and-click operation.
- Build new MIB applications without programming for Internet-standard and enterprise-specific MIBs. Once you have built a MIB application, you can monitor objects through the menu bar.
- Collect historical MIB information about MIB objects, store MIB data for trend analysis, and graph collected data.
- Define event thresholds for MIB objects; for example, an event can be generated when the disk usage on a particular device exceeds a limit.
- Define actions to be taken upon receipt of an SNMP event.
- Access NNM through a read-only web browser interface as opposed to the normal console screen.
- Discover WWW servers and launch a web browser to view their home pages. Discover web-manageable devices and launch a web browser to view their management pages.
