AggreGate collects the real-time traffic and bandwidth usage percentage metrics from individual router/switch ports. This provides some spot and historical insights on the router/switch health and communications with its peers.
The Network Manager is optimized to keep and quickly access the long-term trends for thousands of network interfaces, which helps to build the averaged charts for hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly traffic/bandwidth usage.
Unlike similar platforms, the AggreGate Network Manager's architecture provides fully customizable charts and reports. It's possible to combine the traffic from several ports and even devices on a single chart, add the moving average or linear regression trends to facilitate the capacity planning, and more.
Scheduled Traffic Reporting
Traffic and bandwidth usage reports can be scheduled for periodic emailing to a system administrator or other people in charge. Reports may be sent in PDF, HTML, RFT, Excel, and other formats.
High Bandwidth Utilization Alerts
AggreGate Network Manager will trigger an alert if the interface's bandwidth utilization percentage exceeds a certain threshold. The alert notifications can be delivered via email, SMS and other methods.
Traffic Decomposition and Analysis
In addition to retrieving simple per-port traffic metrics via SNMP, AggreGate Network Manager can collect and process the traffic data using NetFlow, sFlow, and IPFIX.
Other Performance Metrics
All standard router health and performance metrics are collected by default, including availability, response time, CPU load, memory usage, fan speed, etc. A lot of tools are provided for analyzing these metrics:
- Alerts (e.g., Link Down, Router Configuration Changed, EGP Neighbor Lost)
- Reports (e.g., Interface Traffic Top 10, Memory Usage Over 90%)
- Charts (e.g., Interfaces By Type, Response Time Top 10)
Moreover, AggreGate IoT Platform provides a unique functionality for setting up alerting, querying, reporting and charting on the custom performance indicators (such as WiMAX signal strength).
Custom Asset Information
AggreGate Network Manager is a very flexible IT asset tracking solution. In addition to specifying the pre-defined asset tracking data (serial number, model, location, notes, etc.), it's possible to associate the custom data in a user-defined format with every router, switch or other IT asset.
