Monitor your Information System (IS)
With LoriotPro, you possess a tool with the power of a control tower for monitoring your computing resources that guarantees availability and performance to your users.
Your computing resources, data and applications, servers, workstations, switches and network routers all constitute your IS’s infrastructure and can be supervised thanks to the management protocol SNMP, the Internet standard. LoriotPro takes advantage of this protocol in its smallest details to help you be effective and accurate in your daily supervising tasks. LoriotPro does not stop there; it extends its control by using various protocols such as ICMP and HTTP for WEB server monitoring, for example.
Monitoring is made possible thanks to an optimized use of the Windows® graphical interface as well as Internet browsers. The direct display of your computing resources and of their performance status in the form of color-coded icons and alert messages draws your attention to any fault situations.
Among the possible display modes are:
- Topological display in geographical maps or state diagrams
- Hierarchical tree display organized entirely by you
- Filtered display of your most sensitive and critical resources
- Filtering and display in a list form of events informing you of changes in state
Administer your network resources
Monitoring without administration cannot guarantee the responsiveness you need to maintain a system in production mode.
LoriotPro facilitates this task by enabling the administrator to act on the changeable parts of the resources he handles. Most hardware is configured and maintained either by direct access or by remote access in Telnet and WEB modes. However, many configuration changes can be made directly using SNMP and its SET command.
This possibility, which at first glance seems to bring no added value with respect to standard configuration methods, takes on a whole new dimension in LoriotPro. LoriotPro’s Script functions let you chain requests and thus automate many repetitive and tedious tasks. You can, for example, send multiple successive SNMP requests to a switch and retrieve a list of all active ports, gather a list of devices running the same Operating System or version, etc.
Dynamic directory of your IS resources
The complexity of an Information System and/or network administrator’s work is directly related to the number of resources he has to maintain. Furthermore, in the past few years intentional failures (hackers and human error) have been added to the hardware and software failures that administrators must deal with. Given the number of possible flags or indicators to monitor, the administrator must have an optimized graphical interface in which the organization and display of resources are shown in a comprehensive overview. LoriotPro has a hierarchical tree display for all your resources.
This directory, completely under your control, allows you to file all your computing resources using a logical organization that is the best one adapted to your activities and your internal organization. It also allows you to delegate the monitoring of part of your resources to third parties without revealing your entire information system and your tree organization. This tree is your workspace for configuring your resources. If you decide, for example, to set up a particular monitoring flag such as the volume of exchanges of a network interface on one of your servers, it is in the tree on the server to be monitored that you assign a task responsible for that monitoring. Seconds after you set up the flag, you can display it in a graphic.
Finding a particular resource object, a workstation for example, among hundreds of workstations that make up your information system could quickly become a difficult task. With a multi-criteria search engine LoriotPro pinpoints and moves you to the object in the directory you wanted to find.
Criteria can be technical (the IP address of the host) but also
organizational (the room and plug number where your PC is connected).
