The comprehensive, authoritative guide to OpenView administration
This is the first comprehensive, hands-on guide to using OpenView administration tools to maximize network performance, availability, and value. You'll find expert guidance on planning, customization, automation, security, optimization, troubleshooting, and a whole lot more.
After a practical review of network management and SNMP, three HP consultants walk you through using Network Node Manager (NNM) to monitor network connectivity -- and adapting NNM to your unique requirements. Next, you'll discover how to use Customer Views (CV) containers to manage your most important resources, from customers to Internet sites. The authors offer realistic guidance on managing networks across the Web using HP's Service Information Portal, and on monitoring computers and software with OpenView Operations (OVO). Coverage includes:
Overcoming obstacles to successful network and system management
Planning for deployment: a best-practices checklist
Running NNM: discovery, symbols, objects, alarms, and queries
Customizing NNM: submaps, application integration, custom symbols/fields, and more
CV: providing a logical view of devices based on customer ownership

Managing data collection and event configuration
Scalability and distribution: remote consoles, filters, and Distributed Internet Monitoring
Roles, service levels, installation, configuration, agents, policies, and day-to-day administration
