JP1 automatically creates a topology map based on the nodes detected in your network and continually updates this topology map whenever the configuration changes. It allows you to visually ascertain changes (including failures) in the status of each managed node based on the color of the node's icon. It is easy to view internal IP addresses and their corresponding external IP addresses after NAT conversion.
The nodes can be organized into node groups and assembled into hierarchies by IP address, device type, or some other criterion. You can customize the background of a node group map with an image of your choice (such as a photograph or map) to create a window that immediately evokes the physical locations of nodes and their network configuration.
When network failures occur during a large number of events generated, JP1 identifies the correlations among the generated events, filters them out, and reports events that are directly linked to the root causes of failures to administrators as incidents. Administrators can accelerate troubleshooting and reduce network downtime.
From the All Incidents view, you can display the node group map to quickly identify the location of the server or network device on which a failure occurred. You can also view a topology map that includes an analysis pane. This pane displays topological information, device information, and MIB* information all in one place, making troubleshooting far easier and faster.
JP1 allows you to manage an incident as it progresses through different statuses (such as Registered, In progress, Complete, and Resolve). This helps you keep track of the failure progress that needs to be addressed and prevents failures from being left unaddressed. You can also assign severity levels to incidents that need to be resolved. This helps administrators to address the most urgent incident.
You can configure JP1 so that failures or other events trigger the automatic execution of commands to perform certain actions. Examples of these actions include registering failures as incidents, notifying administrators of failures, and collecting log information.
In the All Incidents view, you can view incidents sorted by severity level or status (resolved or unresolved), as well as color-code each incident according to its level of importance. In addition, for each node group, you can filter the list to display only incidents that occurred in the past hour, day, week, month, or other units of time.
