Cisco Network Management Solutions EngineersA wealth of network management utilities from Cisco and third-party vendors highlights the importance and complexity of maintaining networks. Progent's Cisco qualified network management engineers are experienced at helping businesses design management strategies based on Simple Network Management Protocol, SYSLOG services, and Cisco NetFlow to build powerful mechanisms for understanding network utilization and network latency, viewing key router and switch operational metrics, and identifying traffic profiles, applications, and devices utilizing network services.

Progent can help customers to utilize a rich selection of free and license-based monitoring and management products to maintain a Cisco network. Tools used by Progent's engineers include MRTG, Cacti, Nagios, PRTG, Cisco Cisco ASDM, Cisco Monitor Manager, CiscoWorks, Cisco Security Manager, OpenView, Wireshark/Ethereal, Concord E-Health, Advent and Firewall Analyzer, Solarwinds Orion, and Necordia NetMRI.

Network management tools can allow organizations to understand existing network usage and intelligently plan for future capacity expansion. Management tools can also be used to identify inefficient or inappropriate uses of network services, such as streaming audio and video, peer-to-peer file sharing, etc. that can use up valuable or scarce network resources. A well planned network management solution can also aid organizations to arrive at intelligent choices on system improvements after they understand the amount of network resources actually required at specific times.

Putting an efficient network management platform in place beforehand is essential to avoid major problems that can result from DoS attacks and malicious viruses. Such events can leave the network unstable and without proper utilities it can be difficult, and in some cases virtually impossible, to find the source of the trouble.
