Reporting & Visualization
StableNet® is the first choice for real-time and historical reporting and visualization. Additionally, it allows execution of meaningful trending analyses for forecasts.
StableNet® has a highly flexible reporting engine with comprehensive web dashboards and targeted reports, so that you can see the real-time status of your network infrastructure and business services. Rapid troubleshooting of network problems, understanding trends, and verifying compliance of service levels is navigated with ease.
Flexible KPI definition to support your OLA & SLA reports, as well as business level reporting, End-of-Life & End-of-Service reports, policy and compliance validation, and further solid inventory visualization capabilities are also part of the StableNet® reporting portfolio.
The StableNet® reporting and visualization system is highly scalable. All reports can be fully automated and customized by the internal reporting editor according to your individual business needs.
Network, Service & Traffic Analysis
Ultimate network transparency
Real-time & historical analysis, reports & trend
StableNet® helps you answer critical management questions about your network, e.g. where the traffic sources are located, what policies are being followed, or about the current application trends and behaviors.
With the comprehensive StableNet® Analyzer functionalities, you know what your normal modus operandi is, enabling you to identify and receive an alert on any deviation from the known state. Real-time views generated via the StableNet® Analyzer allow for optimum network transparency.
You can create forecasts based on current data and configure SLA threshold markers to proactively alert and inform when traffic deviation breaches occur.
Understand your network behavior and trends, along with how users and applications consume resources either historically or in real-time.

Root Cause & Impact Analysis
Auto-correlation of alarms
Automated Root Cause Analysis
StableNet® combines its real-time analysis system with a very efficient and automated Root Cause Analysis system. Due to its dependency-based analysis algorithm, the base for the root cause system is automatically created from the auto-discovery and inventory data, so there is no need to define rules manually. Root Cause Analysis also works in meshed IP networks.
The Root Cause Analysis shows the source of the problem, all affected devices and areas, and hereby allows very effective troubleshooting. It is based on both, fault and performance management data.
Hence, the otherwise undetected critical service conditions are recognized and highlighted even if the fault management system indicates full availability with degraded performance levels at the same time.
Most often, one problem causes many alarms in the network. StableNet® detects all real root causes as fixing a single one solves the network problem including all the symptoms.
Alarm Correlation & Fault Isolation
Auto-Triggering & Auto-Clearing
The automated Root Cause Analysis and alarm processing allows to automate the triggering and clearing of trouble tickets by directly addressing the problem-causing element (“Dark NOC” operations).
Stateful Alarm Monitoring
The very efficient StableNet® Alarm State Machine processes and reduces even large volumes of alarms to a usable level.
Dependency graphs, based on automatically updated inventory and discovery data, allow an almost instant indication of the root cause and the affected areas which avoids time-consuming rules parsing.
Business Impact & Business Value Assignments
on impacted areas via automated Root Cause Analysis.
Easy interactive assignment of business value to a service monitor – in case of a service outage or performance degradation (threshold), a pre-assigned business value will be summed up.
Integration of External Scripts
Rapid and easy integration of external business process monitoring scripts via StableNet® XML templates by definition of the input and output parameter of the external script.
Syslog Portal with syslogs
Syslog Portal with syslog detail
Clear & actionable information
A single alarm shows the problem-causing component with the ability to directly drill-down to the respective device which had caused the performance issue or fault.
No manual rules updates
Day-by-day infrastructure changes are automatically tracked by discovery. The rules-free dependency graphs are updated accordingly.
Alarm & event correlation
Intelligent correlation for fast problem identification, classification, investigation, and diagnosis.
Dynamic Rules Generation (DRG)
DRG robotically expands and contracts rule sets to keep troubleshooting data at optimum levels constantly, without human intervention.
Trouble ticket system integration
StableNet® can be configured to interwork and fill in the trouble ticket entries of commonly used trouble ticket and incident management systems.
of the efficiency of troubleshooting (e.g. ticket number).
Business process integration
Seamless integration into your business processes, e.g. ticket system.
Isolate and fix occurring network problems before customers call.
Cutting down Mean-Time-To-Repair
Minimizing downtime expands your service availability and has a positive impact on your revenue.
Policies, Vulnerabilities & EoX
Network Configuration & Change Management (NCCM) and Vulnerability & Lifecycle Management (VLM)
Policy & Compliance Validation
StableNet® performs policy checks on devices and systems, and can execute defined configuration changes.
Policy Checking Jobs are efficiently handled by distributed StableNet® Agents which are constantly checking configuration deviations from corporate standards. Further, Policy Check Scripts can be used for custom or even more complex checks.
All these checks produce violations or compliant results similar to measurement data. They can be displayed and reported in the StableNet® Group Analyzer and Policy Check Analyzer. If violations are detected, alarms can be raised automatically.
Due to the comprehensive compliance reporting capabilities within StableNet®, compliance-relevant data and business workflows can be monitored.
Enforcing of corporate policies and regulatory requirements, and quickly viewing configuration deviations from those standards.

StableNet® has the capability to scan and analyze the inventory database to check device types, associated card types, and operating system software for vendor lifecycle announcements.
Additionally, we offer a service for End-of-Life (EoL) and End-of-Service (EoS) data for different vendors to be compliant with the actual vendor announcements.
The output of this critical information provides an encompassing view of uncovering potential risks, identifies software and hardware obsolescence, allows to align individual technology needs of your organization to the transformative ambitions of the business, and creates a foundation for best practice modern architecture standardization.
The lifecycle reports can be used to feed into hardware and software infrastructure planning, risk assessment, and contribute with optimization of OPEX & CAPEX refresh business cases for financial planning and budgeting purposes.
