CiscoWorks LAN Management Solution
CiscoWorks LMS is an integrated suite of management tools that simplify the configuration, administration, monitoring, and troubleshooting of Cisco® networks. Built upon popular Internet-based standards, CiscoWorks LMS applications help enable network operators to manage the network through a browser-based interface that can be accessed anytime from anywhere within the network. CiscoWorks LMS maintains a centralized list of all Cisco network devices and their credentials that serves as a single repository for all CiscoWorks applications whether they are installed locally or distributed in a multiserver deployment. CiscoWorks LMS Portal provides functional views that can be customized to meet the needs of an individual or group of network operations staff, simplifying integration and navigation between Cisco and other third-party application functionality.
CiscoWorks Health and Utilization Monitor
CiscoWorks HUM is an easy-to-use Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)-based MIB polling application that provides real-time and historical information for monitoring and reporting on network devices' attributes. A set of predefined default polling attributes exist for quickly identifying and troubleshooting performance and resource issues for top-N reports for CPU utilizations, memory, interface utilizations, device availability, and more that are represented as web-based portlets (see Figure 1).
Figure 1. HUM Portlet View
In addition to the predefined polling attributes, you can customize CiscoWorks HUM to poll for any MIB attribute at user-specified intervals. This provides maximum flexibility for monitoring key device attributes for isolating device-related issues before they affect service. Another key feature, Trendwatch, allows threshold exceptions to be defined over a time interval so that a notification event can be sent based upon a user-defined exception, improving the filter and letting you aggregate information and proactively react to a complex condition.
"HUM is integral to providing real-time network and device monitoring for our network operations team. It provides us with up-to-the-minute status and helps us to proactively monitor and troubleshoot potential problems before they are service and end-user impacting." Craig, Senior Network Analyst, Financial Services Industry
