A Powerful, Intuitive Solution for Managing Critical Networks & the Routes That Connect Them
  • MacMall Part #: 768417 
  • Manufacturer Part #: LA4X  
  • Platform: PC 

Link Analyst provides graphical mapping of network devices, uptime monitoring of device response times, a trigger-based active notification system to warn of network problems as they happen, and web reporting. Link Analyst provides both local and remote monitoring on any connected network, allowing system administrators schedule flexibility along with the confidence of instant notification in the event of a problem.

While some may ask the question “Whats up?” Link Analyst answers the question “Whats down?” and “What device may be going down?”. Trigger-based warnings provide early notice of the state of any monitored device. While a station or device that is down may represent a critical problem and an action that needs to be taken, knowing historical response time statistics (including, possibly, degradation) may solve little problems before they become big ones.

Link Analyst will show you graphically which systems are up, which systems are down, and which systems are performing within unacceptable or marginal parameters.

Link Analyst is a cost-effective, software-based Windows 98/Me/NT/2000/XP solution that is easy to install and use. Youll quickly realize the time and cost savings of being able to identify trouble spots before they turn into a crisis. Link Analyst is the perfect tool for monitoring and maintaining a networks QoS (Quality of Service), or a service providers adherence to the terms of a SLA (Service Level Agreement).

With Link Analyst, you can monitor the severity of degradation and spot trends that may indicate an impending failure.

Additionally, Link Analysts complete facility to monitor WAN links provides up-to-the-minute route analysis, point-to-point route response times, and the display of each hop in a specific route, as well as response time statistics for each hop. Graphical device mapping is combined with real-time response-time monitoring. Route response times and specific link path information are logged and can be easily accessed for comparison to current conditions.

Map Your Network Quickly and Easily
Link Analyst automatically creates a map of any segment or group of systems on your LAN. LAN and device mapping provides both a heads-up view of the LAN, and shows current network assets with a visual grade of the current response times. “Drill-down” is available for individual station statistics, and tabs for map-specific details show device addresses and various names (IP, DNS, IPX, NetBIOS), response time histories, and configuration status.

Route Mapping—Provides both a graphical and table-based display of a route between the Link Analyst PC and any device reachable via IP, permitting the network administrator to monitor the performance of the connection between the two devices. Create an independent QoS log for WAN vendor uptime, as well as response time SLA verification.

Network Mapping—Provides both a graphical and table-based display of a network, network segment, or even an entire WAN, permitting the network administrator to monitor the response time and performance of devices anywhere on the network, including remote servers, within a matter of minutes.

Map reference items are “goto” links that represent a downstream LAN, WAN or device on any given map. Critical devices on a downstream map can be identified so that each reference item will change color, warning you of a problem that may need investigation. A quick double-click on a reference item displays the subordinate map with the potential problem(s). With map reference items, complete WAN problem identification layouts can be built. A WAN/router-based view of network can be shown, with all downstream LANs referenced and monitored.

Maps can be viewed as a bus, ring, group, or in free-form layout. Link Analyst shows all network devices as icons on a user-configurable display with graphical layout tools that allow complete display and map customization.

By creating a master map, the administrator can embed either kind of map—route or network— as submaps, which may contain devices, or links to other maps, or both. This limits screen clutter and allows administrators to tell at a glance if there is a problem on the network and zero in on the source of the problem with just a few mouse clicks.
