Device Status Tracking

You can use DME to proactively track the status of any SNMP-enabled device. DME monitors SNMP messages generated by specified devices for status information. Each time a status change message is intercepted, DME logs the information in the database. If the new status matches a pre-set alert condition on that device, a notification message is forwarded to designated individuals or desktops. You can view the current device status at any time within the Device Monitoring Console, or you can run reports to ascertain the overall device health, and plan maintenance based on historical performance. For details, see Device Monitoring with DME.
