Overview of RME


The Resource Manager Essentials (RME) suite is part of the CiscoWorks family of products. It is an Enterprise solution to network management. RME is a powerful suite of Web-based applications offering network management solutions for Cisco switches, access servers, and routers.

The Resource Manager Essentials browser interface allows easy access to information critical to network uptime and simplifies time-consuming administrative tasks.

RME is based on a client/server architecture that connects multiple web-based clients to a server on the network. As the number of network devices increases, additional servers or collection points can be added to manage network growth with minimal impact on the client browser application.

Taking advantage of the scalability inherent in the intranet architecture, RME supports multiple users anywhere on the network. The web-based infrastructure gives network operators, administrators, technicians, Help Desk staff, IS managers, and end users access to network management tools, applications, and services.

RME allows the network administrators to view and update the status and configuration of all Cisco devices from anywhere on the network through a standard Web browser as the RME client.

RME maintains a database of current network information. It can generate a variety of reports that can be used for troubleshooting and capacity planning. When devices are initially added to the RME, the network administrator can schedule RME to periodically retrieve and update device information, such as hardware, software, and configuration files, to ensure that the most current network information is stored.

In addition, RME automatically records any changes made to network devices, making it easy to identify when changes are made and by whom.

RME applications provide the network monitoring and fault information you need for tracking devices that are critical to network uptime. They also provide tools that you can use to rapidly and reliably deploy Cisco software images and view configurations of Cisco routers and switches.

RME applications, together with links to Cisco.com service and support, automate software maintenance to help you maintain and control your Enterprise network.

Device Management

Most RME tasks are performed against a set of devices. Device Management is the starting point for all RME applications.

For RME to work with devices, you must first add devices to Common Services Device and Credential Repository. RME provides a facility to either select devices from Device and Credential Repository and add the selected devices into RME or automatically add devices to RME by enabling the Automatically Manage Devices from Credential Repository setting in the Device Management Setting window.

When devices are added to RME, Inventory (and other applications within RME) proceed to contact the device and collect necessary information to be stored in the database.
