VEI-NMS – A network management system (NMS) is a set of hardware and/or software tools that allow an IT professional to supervise the individual components of a network within a larger network management framework. Network management system components assist with:

Network device discovery:

identifying what devices are present on a network.

Network device monitoring:

monitoring at the device level to determine the health of network components and the extent to which their performance matches capacity plans and intra-enterprise service-level agreements (SLAs).

Network performance analysis:

tracking performance indicators such as bandwidth utilization, packet loss, latency, availability and uptime of routers, switches and other Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) -enabled devices.

Intelligent notifications:

configurable alerts that will respond to specific network scenarios by emailing, calling or texting a network administrator.
