IT Asset Management

AggreGate Network Manager simplifies the inventory and tracking of your IT assets, including routers, servers, workstations, printers, and any other devices.

There are several ways to perform the IT inventory in AggreGate Network Manager:

Automatic Hardware and Inventory
Custom Asset Attributes
Third-Party Inventory or DCIM System Integration

Automatic Hardware and Inventory

The system discovers hardware and software components of the routers, switches, servers, and workstations via SNMP, WMI and CLI protocols. It provides a comprehensive reporting for:

Router/switch interfaces, slots, modules, fans, power supplies, etc.
Descriptions, locations and contact person details that were specified in the SNMP stack configuration of routers, switches, servers, and workstations
Processors, disks, network cards, input devices, ports, fans, power supplies, and other hardware components of servers and workstations
Types, names, descriptions, versions, and installation dates of software packages installed on the servers and workstations
And much more

Custom Asset Attributes

The AggreGate's modeling engine allows defining custom attributes, structures, tables, and lists. Those user-defined properties can be attached to the network devices and other system resources. This helps build a business-specific resource/service model and then provide the inventory reporting and visualization.

Some examples of the custom inventory attributes added to the network assets by default:

Basic Information

Serial Number Responsible Person
Manufacturer Contact Information
Model Notes
Acquired Photo

Asset Location

Country
City
Building
Floor
Room

Asset Events

Date

Third-Party Inventory or DCIM System Integration

Large telecoms and corporations tend to operate the standalone IT inventory systems. AggreGate Network Manager can perfectly integrate with those systems. A typical integration scenario looks as follows:

The Network Manager raises an alert upon a service failure or degradation
The alert event is enriched with the context-sensitive information retrieved from an external inventory system
The enriched alert gets stored in the server database and goes through the AggreGate's own event processing workflow
A corrective action of this alert reaches the company's service desk and creates a trouble ticket that includes all relevant inventory information (asset location, affected business services, etc.)
