Switches are the backbone of your LAN. Any
problem in your switches affects a large proportion of your
LAN users. Implementing a proactive switch monitoring system
helps you detect problems early and avoid potential problems.
OpManager's switch monitoring functionality automatically
discovers switches in your network and places them on a special
switch map . All the switch ports are also discovered and
intuitively placed on the map.
Using OpManagers switch monitoring capability, operators
can gain visibility into the status and availability of switch
ports. OpManager actively monitors switch ports and quickly
notifies operators whenever a switch port or the switch goes
down. Operators can setup OpManager to monitor only critical
ports, an industry best practice for Switch monitoring, that
prevents unnecessary alarms from being generated. OpManager
also offers visibility into spanning tree status showing which
ports are blocked and which ones are forwarding.
