HP NNM iSPI Performance for Quality Assurance 9.10

Product Highlights

Your network supports a wide range of end-user services and revenue-generating transactions, which is why you must keep your network downtime to a minimum. HP NNM iSPI Performance for Quality Assurance (QA iSPI) monitors quality of service levels of the network discovered by Network Node Manager to ensure network services are performing to the desired levels. The QA iSPI achieves this by automatically discovering (IP SLA) probes configured on your network devices and monitoring the results of the probes to deduce the health of the network. The QA iSPI in conjunction with NNMi performs the following tasks: Discover the pre-configured SLA probes defined for various network elements. Monitor these probes on the network elements to ascertain any performance inconsistency. Display the probe results and exceptions on the NNM console. Provide trending reports of the response time and other metrics via the Network Performance Server component of the NNM iSPI Performance for Metrics.

QA iSPI software provides real-time network monitoring and network incident management essential to modern data center IT operations. The QA iSPI introduces the concept of a "site" which is location perspective of the network, by grouping network probes by their source or destination IP address ranges and other attributes such as VRF. Since IP SLA probes can monitor destinations outside your direct management domain, this capability thus extends your network management capabilities into the Wide-Area Network. The QA iSPI can discover and monitor probes configured within your local site as well as outside. The QA iSPI can manage L3VPN sites by discovering probes with VRF contexts. The QA iSPI can manage VoIP-based probes to access and manage voice quality related issues by integrating with the NNM iSPI for IP Telephony.
