Want to ask some NAM related questions to can help a customer owning a lot of NAM's in its network:
1. LMS (v3.2) integration: looking at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/net_mgmt/ciscoworks_lan_management_solution/3.0/device_support/table/lms30sdt.html
you will see that NAM-2 is supportet for Config Mgmt (RME) and Software Mgmt (RME). Does it mean that we can
a) easy update all NAM's from v3.6.1 to v4.1 at once with LMS/RME/SWIM
b) easy rollout eagle settings to all NAM's, e.g. Bit/s, Magnitude Units from Us to De ... with LMS/RME/NetConfig
2. Trace Trigger Syncronisation: What can we do if we need to trace a Probleme located between 2 NAM's to can trigger the Capture Start and Stop of this 2 NAM's at once?
3. What is the best product, if we want to have more benefits when tracing with more than one NAM, such as:
- PacketSynchronisation between 2 traces
- Flytime between NAM's
- Expert till Application
- all to can save time in deaper troubleshooting of difficult problems
NetQoS, Compuware, Opnet Ace?
(Completly uninteresting are the marketing storries of VoIP monitoring and WAAS integration)
thx for Hints, Steffen
