Real-time & historical analysis, reports & trend

StableNet® helps you answer critical management questions about your network, e.g. where the traffic sources are located, are policies being followed, or about the current application trends and behaviors.

With the comprehensive StableNet® Analyzer functionalities, you know what your normal modus operandi is, so that you can identify and alert on any deviation from the known state. Real-time views generated via the StableNet® Analyzer allow for the optimum of network transparency.

You can create forecasts based upon current data and configure SLA threshold markers to proactively alert and inform when traffic deviation breaches occur. 

Understand your network behavior and how users and applications consume resources historically, in real-time, and trend.

Root Cause & Impact Analysis

Auto-correlation of alarms

Watch our webinar recording on Trouble Ticketing System Integration with StableNet® on YouTube.

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).

q

Stateful Alarm Monitoring

The very efficient StableNet® Alarm State Machine processes and reduces even large volumes of alarms to a usable level.

W

Quick Isolation

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

Automated Assignment

Policies, Vulnerabilities & EoX

Network Configuration & Change Management (NCCM) and Vulnerability & Lifecycle Management (VLM)

NCCM & VLM

Policy & Compliance Validation

Policy Management

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.

EoX Management

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.

Lifecycle tracking for compliance, asset, and financial planning.
