Network Management Solutions Professional HelpA wealth of network management utilities from Cisco and third-party suppliers highlights the value and complexity of network management. Progent's Cisco qualified network management consultants are experienced at assisting companies design management strategies based on Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), SYSLOG services, and Cisco NetFlow to build powerful tools for understanding network utilization and network latency, viewing important router and switch performance characteristics, and recognizing traffic profiles, processes, and devices that use available services.

Progent can help businesses to deploy a rich selection of open source and license-based monitoring and management solutions to maintain a Cisco network. Tools familiar to Progent's consultants include MRTG, Cacti, Nagios, PRTG, Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager (ASDM), Cisco Network Assistant, CiscoWorks, Cisco Security Manager, OpenView, Concord E-Health, Adventnet Netflow and Firewall Analyzer, Big Brother, and Necordia NetMRI.

Network management tools can allow organizations to understand existing system usage and intelligently plan for downstream capacity increases. Management utilities can also be used to detect poor or improper uses of network services, such as streaming audio and video, peer-to-peer file sharing, etc. that can eat up valuable or limited network bandwidth. A well crafted network management strategy can also enable businesses to arrive at intelligent choices on system upgrades once they appreciate the amount of system bandwidth actually required at specific times.

Putting an efficient network management platform in place beforehand is vital to prevent severe problems that can follow Denial Of Service attacks and dangerous viruses. Such events can leave the network unusable and in the absence of proper utilities it can be time consuming, and in some cases practically impossible, to discover the source of the problem.
