Campus Manager Topology Maps

Unanswered Question
Nov 5th, 2007

I'm in the process of creating groups in RME so our Network Operation Center can have an overall view of our companies Network. We have three sites so I created three locations in RME Device groups so we have three Network Clouds for them to view and drill down to our Network infrastructure maps. In the event if something happens with our devices do the devices changes color that will notify them that is it something wrong with the devices. We are trying to slowly move away from SolarWinds, which does a pretty job but the maps or not Dynamic. If not does CiscoWorks intend sometimes intend in the near future to add a feature that displays a nice visual?

I have this problem too.

Campus Manager Topology is not a fault management view of the network. Yes, devices will go from green to red, but only after a Data Collection or polling cycle has run. By default, this could take up to two hours.

Future releases of Campus Manager will integrate more with DFM to provide some sense of fault management on the maps, but for now, you should not be relying on the map to tell you a device is down.

Thanks for the info. Just trying to see on how can we get our NOC involved and give them a dynamic view instead of relying on the static maps Solarwinds provides. We have the DFM traps going to Netcool which is our centralized location for our SNMP Traps.
