NPM provides at-a-glance insights into the health of network hardware by monitoring, alerting and reporting on the state of the key devices sensors, including temperature, fan speed and power supply.
  • SolarWinds Network Configuration Manager (NCM) automates network configuration and change management, enabling bulk change deployment to thousands of devices, performing scheduled network configuration backups, and protecting against unauthorised and erroneous network changes.
