According to statistics, 8 out of 10 companies today use several monitoring and management systems (NMS, SCADA, etc.) in their work. But since it is not always convenient to monitor and control the indicators on each of these platforms separately, sooner or later, there comes a point when the company's management needs to see a common, easily perceived and objective picture of the state of the whole business - at that moment, there is a need for a centralized monitoring system.
Solutions for umbrella monitoring allows various analytical information to be collected from a variety of different systems in one place (SPM), where based on the collected data metric thresholds are built, critical points are determined and, according to a specified scenario, solved automatically or notify the administrator of incidents in work equipment.
In addition, by aggregating and correlating data, it is easy to identify the root causes of system failures, diagnose their impact on business processes, and prioritize actions. Also, based on such data, you can proactively solve problems and predict possible off-line situations.
Thanks to the umbrella monitoring system, companies with a large number of equipment, a significant number of departments and employees, will be able to provide operational and continuous monitoring of the operation of various platforms, each of which is a separate software and hardware complex with its own set of performance indicators for services.
In the operational area, umbrella monitoring shows deviations from the norm and helps to restore services, maintain agreed service levels - i.e. is a key part of business support processes.
The umbrella monitoring system is based on the newly developed ControlNet software platform. This is the first software platform capable of unlimited interaction with any equipment, even such that does not support the required standard interfaces.
To date, the Platform Controller has developed more than 1500 drivers for connecting equipment to more than 140 manufacturers. Moreover, these drivers are written in an open XML format and so any user can create new or modify existing drivers. For any non-standard interface, it is possible to convert it to SNMP, so that such equipment can interact with any third-party software solutions that support a standard SNMP interface.
The umbrella monitoring system provides:
The Kontrolon software offers operators an unlimited access to the system via the Internet connection and thus allows monitoring of the equipment from any standard computer. An intuitive user interface provides a complete set of functions for data collection, analysis of equipment behavior, alarm management and system messages in real time. The Kontrolon software uses a powerful graphical interface that allows reflecting the changing conditions of the equipment on images in racks, room plans or other diagrams created with standard Microsoft® Visio® software.
Umbrella Monitoring System covers absolutely all spheres of activity of the enterprise!
A variety of systems can be integrated into a single network, including:
The system of umbrella monitoring allows to produce:
