Emanics Repository Software Classification
Below you can browse the Emanics software repository's packages grouped by the following 5 standard categories (FCAPS) according to the ITU-T TMN/ISO OSI model and framework*Fault - goal is to recognize, isolate, correct and log faults that occur in the network. The leading Fault Management systems are HP OpenView, IBM Tivoli Netcool, TTI Telecom Netrac, Clarity etc.
Configuration - goals include: to gather and store configurations from network devices, to simplify the configuration of the device, to track configuration's changes and to configure circuits or network paths. The examples are: RANCID config change history, Cfengine managed files, RCS version control etc.
Accounting - goal is to gather usage statistics for users. Using such statistics the users can be billed and usage quota can be enforced. RADIUS, TACACS and Diameter are examples of protocols/tools commonly used for accounting task.
Performance - enables the manager to prepare the network for the future, as well as to determine the efficiency of the current network. The network performance addresses the throughput, percentage utilization, error rates and response times areas. By collecting and analysing performance data, the network health can be also monitored. Trends can indicate capacity or reliability issues before they become service affecting.
Security - this management category's task is to control access to assets in the network. Data security can be achieved mainly with authentication and encryption mechanisms.
