iSPI Performance for metrics question

Hi folks

I'm new to iSPI Perf for Metrics and am curious as to the most popular reports that network groups look at and are most useful to them. Are there any "tips and tricks" to leveraging that software?

Thanks

Re: iSPI Performance for metrics question

Hi,

The Network Performance Server (NPS) that is provided with the NNM iSPI Performance for Metrics is the Reporting platform allowing to generate reports from the networking data collected  by NNMi and all the iSPIs, all of them providng Extension Packs to the NPS: Metrics iSPI, Traffic iSPI, QA iSPI, MPLS iSPI, IPT iSPI, Multicast iSPI ...

There are generic reports that are proposed by the NPS on a per Extension Pack basis for all Extension Packs, and some that are Extension Pack specific.
It is difficult to say which of these reports are the most popular ones since it all depends of your management domain and the iSPIs that you have installed in addition to NNMi.

However, please find below some guidelines that will provide you additional details.

The types of reports are described in the NNM iSPI Performance for Metrics OnLine Help, as for instance for version 10.20:

KM02208902: nnm_ispi_Metrics_OnlineHelp_10.20.pdf

Under section "Using Reports", there is a "Report Types" sub-section as shown below:

If you need further information on a per Extension Pack basis, such as for Metrics, Traffic, QA and so on, you can access the corresponding iSPI documentation or use the NPS Console Online Help accessible directly via the NPS console:NPS-OnlineHelp.JPG

Then, from the online help, you can have access from the menu in the left to the Extension Packs specific reports information, depending on the NNMi iSPIs that got installed and that are provided Extension Packs to the NPS. For instance, if you have installed the NNM iSPI for Traffic and NNM iSPI Performance for QA in addition to NNM iSPI Performance for Metrics,  you will find the following menu items availble on the left;

I hope this will help.

All the best
