The D-View® 6.0 SNMP Network Management System is a software tool that
facilitates the central administration of a network with various SNMP-enabled
devices. The D-View 6.0 Standard version (DV-600S) is tailored for networks with
up to 1000 nodes. Flexible and versatile, D-View 6.0 provides network management
to SNMP-based devices, including third party devices.
Automatic Discovery of Network Devices
Administrators can create a topology diagram to graphically represent planned or
existing networks with a simple click of a button. Through SNMP or ICMP, a
topology is automatically generated from your network devices. Traps can be sent
to remote network devices to obtain status information. D-View 6.0 can recognize
a device’s standard (SNMP or non-SNMP), type (router or switch, wired or
wireless) and network domain. That’s only the beginning of the types of analyses
administrators can perform on all their network devices. Import a bitmap of your
building’s blueprint and display your network’s topology on top of the blueprint
to provide a realistic representation of the network topology.
Batch Configuration or Firmware Upgrades
D-View 6.0 makes switch firmware upgrades and configuration changes easier.
Simply select the network devices you wish to upgrade and, with the click of one
button, upload your software. This feature is especially useful in setting up a
network. It is also useful for maintenance, as a group of switches can be
scheduled for the same services: rebooting, port status monitoring, or enabling
such features as Spanning Tree or the Dlink® Safeguard Engine™.
D-View 6.0 supports third-party devices as well. With the D-View MIB compiler,
an administrator can compile and load third-party MIB files into D-View. In this
recognizable format, D-View can then communicate with the third party devices
making them manageable through D-View. Valuable information can then be polled
to provide a complete status of the switch. Even in environments with products
from mixed vendors, D-View can still provide a unified management platform.
Network Status – Real Time Management
D-View 6.0 is a useful tool for monitoring network status and performance in
real time. It allows trap and alarm notification to be set, and can notify the
administrator via e-mail. With the Event Viewer, Filter Setting can extract the
exact information needed by event (type or severity), time (all or specific
period), device (vendor or type), and source. Trap Log and Filter can be set to
facilitate troubleshooting and monitoring.
D-View 6.0 can also present network performance in colorful bars and graphs,
displaying easy-to-read charts with percentage of packet flow, types of packets,
port flow, and much more, any time you want.
Microsoft SQL Server/Access Format Database
Completely integrate managed devices into your network environment with MIB
support. With the MIB compiler and network topology data organized according to
the Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft Access formats, you’ll have the option of
editing their database using D-View, Microsoft SQL Server, or Microsoft Access
