Our Methodology & Benefits

  1. 1. Our Methodology & Benefits Dynamic Documentation, Visual Troubleshooting, Change Assurance, & Automated Diagnoses NetBrain Technologies 15 Network Drive Burlington, MA 01803 +1 800.605.7964 info@netbraintech.com www.netbraintech.com
  2. 2. NetBrain Features At A Glance Create Diagrams Instantly Reduce from hours to seconds to create a feature-rich diagram Update Diagrams Automatically Say good-bye to out-of-date manual diagrams Discover Network Intelligently Discover device, topology and design of network Map Problem Areas Instantly Create a dynamic map of problem area Historical Analysis Analyze “what’s changed” across relevant devices Probe Live Network Visualize “what’s happening” inside a network Change Network Automatically Deliver or rollback a complex change with the push of a button Document Automatically Once the change is done, the documentation is done as well Analyze Impacts Automatically Examine the network before and after the changes using CLI output comparison NetBrain is the 1st map-driven automation software for network troubleshooting, change, and documentation. Drill Down with Qapp Run hundreds of automated diagnosis to discover root cause “D.C.U.” “M-P.H.D.” “C.A.D.” Automation App Qmap Qmaps Share network specific knowledge including all probing, historical analysis, and Qapp Drill- down data. Qmap Reader Share Qmaps with any user, even if they do not have NetBrain installed on their local PC “3Qs” Qapp Qapps + Exchange Automate heavily-lifting of CLI and process. Share how-to knowledge. Dynamic Documentation Reduce Workload 20X Visual Troubleshooting 50% reduction in MTTR Change Assurance Prevent Outages Collaboration Single Source of Data
  3. 3. Dynamic Documentation Automated documentation saves 20% of engineering time on average.
  4. 4. Visual Troubleshooting with ‘Map-Driven PHD’ Everything starts with a map.
  5. 5. Probe – Overall Health Monitor What is the Current Health? 80% of issues isolated
  6. 6. Change Assurance If it worked before, what changed?
  7. 7. Drill Down Need more data? Automate the heavy lifting!
  8. 8. Qapp Overview o Description o A purpose-built, executable application used to automate network activities o Use Case: o Convert any labor-intensive CLI task into a repeatable application • Check CPU and interface errors across all Qmap devices, display results on a map, and set visual alarms • Share standard isolation techniques with other engineers
  9. 9. Troubleshooting Process
  10. 10. How Qapp Works Qapp CLI command parser GUI to define Qapp Network NetBrain Workstation Alert Chart Map
  11. 11. Qapp Creation Process CLI Command Retrieve Sample Parser: Define Variable(s) Analysis: What to do with the variable(s)? Bos-Core1-Tr>show process cpu CPU utilization for five seconds: 4%/0%; one minute: 5%; five minutes: 5% show process cpu One minute: $int:cpu1 Five minutes: $int:cpu5 Monitor it in the map Create an alert (visual and message) Objective:  Monitor the CPU performance of network devices. Create an alert message when CPU usage is higher than a certain percentage and highlight the device in red color in the map.
  12. 12. Typical Installation Timeline Step 1 Install the Server and Client Software ~ 20 minutes for standard deployment Step 2 (optional) Import User Information from LDAP/AD ~ 10 minutes Step3 Discover your Live Network ~ 30 minutes for 1000 devices Step 4 Tune Workspace for Everyday Use Depends on size of network ~3Mbps per Network Server for discovery
