hp openview and naviscore

By canius12 ·
I am about to enter into a position that uses hp openview and naviscore to moniter packet transmission and I was wondering what are the exact uses of these products. And how are they used as in the actual command interfaces and commands used in telnet. In english I want to know everything about these two software products.

hp openview and naviscore

by erikdr In reply to hp openview and naviscore

Well I don't know the exact workings of NaviScore, saw it once in a demo at OpenView Universe fair. Bassically:
- OpenView (Network Node Manager in this case) is the SNMP handler/consolidator.
Its basic interface is a GUI, but you can also work commandline if you really wish.
- Naviscore is a set of agents and an OpenView NNM plugin. The agents communicate their measurements (in this case on packet transmission - the agent also needs special hardware I guess?) through SNMP and possibly RMON to the OV server. The plugin interprets the data (because SNMP basically is a set of fields and values in a MIB, without a plugin OpenView cannot show anything really intelligible out of that...). It too, primarily is in GUI style.

Hope this helps,
