Extending NMIS with Opmantek’s Modules

Extending NMIS with Opmantek’s Modules

NMIS has long been one of the most widely used open-source network management systems in the world, but what many users don’t know is how easy it is to extend the core with the suite of add-on modules that replace other network tools and allow businesses to save on licensing costs and increase overall network performance visibility through system expansion and consolidation of applications.

Building Solutions with NMIS Modules

By combining NMIS with various other modules, Opmantek is able to provide software solutions to suit many different enterprise needs – here are a few of the popular combinations that are delivering strong results and allowing our customers to roll several stand-alone applications into one single NMIS licensing bundle.

 

Network Performance Management and Diagnostics

NMIS, opCharts and opReports

This combination of modules will provide you with the full NMIS capabilities for monitoring network health, capacity planning and event management and alerting, presented in interactive dashboards and reports that can be customised for user groups so that business users can see relevant performance information and engineers can see more detailed operational and information.

 

Configuration Management Database:

Open-AudIT Professional and opConfig

Looking to replace your CMDB?  This combination of modules is saving organisations thousands of dollars in licensing fees each year by automating device discovery and audit, storing configurations, monitoring changes and pushing configuration changes out to sets of devices.

 

Network Configuration and Compliance Automation

NMIS, Open-AudIT Professional/Enterprise, opConfig and opEvents

Save time and money on network administration by using process automation to manage inventory, remediate known issues, consolidate and deduplify events, automatically gather network information, detect and roll back configuration and file changes and more.

 

Traffic Management

NMIS and opFlow

This combination replaces other network monitoring and Netflow tools to give you a consolidated view of flow data including heat maps that visually indicate areas of congestion.

 

Anomaly Detection, Event Prediction and Remediation

NMIS, opTrend and opEvents

Identify issues and threats before they impact your business by leveraging the device and network data gathered by NMIS along with advanced machine learning to determine minute by minute standard baselines for your environment that can help you to identify new threats, unusual behaviour and escalating problems before they impact operations.

Remote Monitoring and Management

NMIS, opHA, opEvents and opCharts

For Managed Service Providers you can replace multi-million dollar RMM systems by combining NMIS with opHA and opCharts.  opHA allows you to increase the performance of applications and deliver high scale and high availability environments, including geographical distribution of the system and overlapping IP address ranges, while opCharts provides a single pane of glass and tiered user views, so that engineers can drill down from a full view of all managed customer equipment to a single device in a remote location, while customers can view their own sites privately and in real time.
