Reliability

Overview

Communication networks are an indispensable part of modern enterprises. Employee and customer interaction, technical support, marketing, sales and procurement activities are all highly dependent on a secure and reliable network infrastructure. With this increasing reliance on data communications, monitoring of the network infrastructure has become more important than ever.

Live/Standby Servers

To ensure a reliable 24/7 network monitoring solution SNMPc Enterprise supports live/standby management servers. The backup SNMPc server continually monitors the primary server and in the event of a failure automatically takes over all network management functions. An automated failover process includes the reconfiguration of any distributed polling agents in the network. Through the standby server feature, users can continue to monitor their network if the primary system is disabled through system failure, human error or other unforeseen circumstances.

User Audit Trails

SNMPc delivers improved security and accountability through support for user audit trails. Any user access to the management platform or configuration changes are tracked and written to a log file. Alerts are automatically generated if an intrusion attempt is detected.
