Fluke Networks is easing the management headaches of network administrators with the release of OptiView Console 6.0, which provides users with real-time updates and alerts to enterprises activities, topology changes and errors across the network.

The console, which incorporates information from the local area network (LAN), wide area network (WAN) and wireless networks, is also capable of integrating results from any other connected platforms such as Fluke’s OptiView Network Analyser, CiscoWorks and Sniffer systems.

Furthermore, the updated console includes the RMON Inspector, which offers detailed reporting on RMON2 compliant devices. The console accumulates profiles about the devices on the network, registering data such as the device name, address and services and then monitors this information to identify any potential problems or errors.

Administrators can also configure the consoles reporting capabilities to suit their requirements, for example, they can select a particular device and they can specify how frequently they want to receive reports on that device – hourly, daily, weekly and so on.
