What makes NetCrunch network monitoring system unique?
There's a multitude of different network monitoring solutions out there, and you're probably wondering what makes NetCrunch so special.

  • It's completely agentless, but does let you create an agent, if you desire.
  • It offers powerful scalability on a single machine and requires only 4GB of RAM and 4 cores, which can be on a VM.
  • It's rule-based: it has monitoring packs, which are sets of rules for alerts. These can be applied by policy to any number grouping of nodes. This makes monitoring larger networks a breeze.
  • It has a pending alerts view, which shows you all the current problems that you have in your network instead of making you dig through the event log.
  • It's great at presenting live data. Your data can be shown on dashboards, live widgets or on custom views. On top of that, it's optimised for a multi-screen NOC room setting.
  • It supports all major operating systems and SNMP. There's also an extension protocol, that lets you write your own scripts and fit data in.
  • It comes with an embedded database so there's no requirement for additional administration or licensing.
  • There's no limit on a size or length of time to keep your performance data.
  • It runs on Windows and is very stable. Some of our clients are running version 5, which is over 7 years old!
  • It has simple, node-based licensing - just count the number of nodes you have. There's no limit on the number of elements, counters or sensors.

Setup Mikrotik routers with OSPF… Part 3
After creating this article, I decided to make a video (no audio) to show you how to configure the routers and run some trace routes and pings between the 7 sites.

This is the final video in the series that shows you how to load the configuration… In this video I will continue with Router 7 and Router 4 testing and start with Router 1 config, after the config is loaded I will enable the OSPF networks and PPTP accounts for router 5,6 and 7, watch as OSPF dynamically updates the IP route entries.

Thank you for watching and reading my video/article, please leave valuable feedback. If you liked this video and would like to see more, please click the “Good Video button?”

I look forward to hearing from you.
