Product Spotlight: FTI Network Monitoring Service

Available to customers for pennies a day, FTI’s NPM enables customers to quickly detect, diagnose, and resolve network outages and performance issues.  It offers at-a-glance insight into networks, ensuring access to critical information needed to keep the network in tip-top shape; and FTI’s NPM is the easiest product of its kind to use and maintain, meaning more time actually managing networks.    

  • Monitor network performance indicators, such as bandwidth utilization, packet loss, latency, errors, discards, and quality of service for any SNMP-enabled devices
  • Monitor disk space, CPU load, and memory utilization on network devices
  • Conduct detailed performance monitoring and analysis of network elements
  • Hover over a network object to see additional details about the object including status, IP address, machine type, and percent loss.

FTI’s Network Performance Monitor (NPM) provides comprehensive performance, fault management and network availability tools to ensure that the network is always running at peak performance. Via a cutting-edge, customizable web interface, FTI’s NPM provides a unified view into the performance of thousands of nodes and interfaces on the customer’s network, all from a single web page where the operator can drill into any element to see exactly what's happening.

FTI’s NPM’s web interface provides real-time views of network performance and availability statistics, as well as detailed monitoring and analysis of data from routers, switches, servers and any other SNMP-enabled devices.  This performance monitoring data alerts for poor network conditions like slow traffic, loss of packets, or impaired devices.  The result is a comprehensive view of how the network is performing, providing the information needed to quickly isolate, diagnose, and repair problems before end users realize that a network issue has developed.

With FTI’s NPM, customers can also automatically monitor and set alerts on disk space, CPU load and memory utilization for network devices. With out-of-the-box support for many vendors and operating systems, including Cisco®, Foundry®, Extreme Networks®, Motorola®, ARRIS®, Linux, Solaris®, HP-UX®, AIX®, Windows® 2000, Windows 2003, and Windows XP devices, FTI’s NPM ensures that customers can easily collect and alert on conditions that could potentially cause a network outage or performance degradation.
