Management

  • HP Intelligent Management Software (IMC) — cohesively integrates fault management, element configuration, and network monitoring from a central vantage point; built-in support for third-party devices enables network administrators to centrally manage all network elements with a variety of automated tasks, including discovery, categorization, baseline configurations, and software images; the software also provides configuration comparison tools, version tracking, change alerts, and more
  • Centralized deployment model — IMC Basic software delivers an extensive set of capabilities for managing small heterogeneous networks and is designed for simplicity and ease of use
  • Rich resource management — IMC software provides powerful network discovery and topology, including a detailed inventory of the network and highly accurate depictions of how it is configured; supported views include Layer 2 and 3, and the ability to create custom views like a dashboard homepage; customization enables administrators to organize and control the network infrastructure based on their preferred organizational model
  • Flexible, centralized reporting — simplifies an organization's report administration; flexible historical reports provide the information needed for network trend analysis and capacity planning, and offer predefined reports or customization options to define parameters; reports can be viewed in a number of formats, including .pdf and .xls, and can be sent automatically via email, or be scheduled to run at a set timeframe
  • Integrated sFlow traffic analysis — using the integrated sFlow traffic analysis, the system can collect flow information from sFlow-capable devices; through traffic analysis, IMC Basic software can help identify network bottlenecks, recognize anomalous traffic, and pinpoint varying levels of bandwidth traffic for different services and applications
  • IMC mobile application — IMC software provides a new mobile application for the iPhone and the Android operating system; this provides administrators with the flexibility to monitor the network while they are away from their offices
  • Telnet/SSH proxy — with the Telnet/SSH proxy, an administrator can use a browser to remotely access and manage devices through Telnet/SSH without installing a Telnet/SSH tool on the PC client used to access the device; this promotes secure and controlled access to devices while providing an audit of changes made on any device
  • Traffic topology — is based on the network's physical topology and enables users to view the traffic conditions of various links
  • Performance monitoring — IMC Basic software provides new ways to view interface performance data; includes four interface performance views: TopN, trend analysis, summary data, and at a glance; the GUI is flexible and allows for instant viewing, switching between multiple views, and quick access to the various interface performance summary views
  • Network data collection — generates, packages, and sends archived information about your network, device, or IMC Basic software to the appropriate HP Networking support or sales organizations in one simple step; this feature gathers the data you selected and then generates reports and data files containing the relevant information; finally, it delivers the reports to your selected destination, either by email, FTP, SFTP, or to a file location
