Enterprise Management Associates
Within the field of network management, and more broadly infrastructure management, there are a number of core/essential management technology areas. For monitoring, there are asynchronous data sets, typically composed of traps and notifications gathered from managed systems, and synchronous data sets coming from the same environment but typically harvested through a proactive polling cycle. Fault/availability management has typically been focused primarily on asynchronous data and complemented by synchronous data. Performance monitoring has typically focused almost exclusively on deeper and more extensive use of synchronous data sets.
