TechSpecs Summary

  • Provides 100% visibility of your entire network
  • One consolidated product for Ping, SNMP, Syslog, Traps, Netflow and Alerting
  • One dedicated server scales to over 2 million interfaces and 1 million flows/sec
  • Full IPv4/v6 and SNMPv3 auto discovery
  • 60 second polling for every MIB object, 15 second ping for every device
  • 3 years history at 1 minute resolution for every sensor (no rollup)
  • Engineered to run in a VM with RAID/SAN/NAS or on physical hardware
  • Adaptive polling algorithms reduces network management traffic volumes
  • Navigate through your data instead of non-intuitive complex control panels
  • Modern Javascript / CSS GUI framework with interactive SVG graphing

  • Full SNMP Trap decoding using vendor specific MIBs
  • Alerting for Device outages, Enumerated OID changes, Thresholds, Syslog, Traps
  • Netflow / J-Flow v5, v9, IPFIX, IPv4, IPv6, over UDP or SCTP
  • Interactive TopN tables and SVG graphs
  • 95th Percentile reporting (supports multiple Telco/ISP algorithms)
  • Events, Netflow and Single Device and Single Interface dashboards
  • Switch Port / VLAN / Vendor ID / IPv4 / IPv6 mapper
  • Auto grouping by vendors, interface types/speeds/VLAN, etc
  • Auto interface state, speed and alias update
  • Vital environment metrics (temperature, humidity, power supply)
  • Interface flapping report
  • Device chassis reports (vendor, model, serial number, version)
  • Unused router and switch interfaces
  • Unreachable events and Availability for IPv4/v6 Ping, SNMP and ifOperStatus
  • Fanout (forwarding) for Syslog, Traps and Netflow
  • Save graphs as high resolution PDF or legacy bitmap PNG
  • Supports different upstream/downstream interface speeds (e.g. DSL)

Syslog

Syslog messages are an important part of any network performance monitoring strategy. As a passive asynchronous protocol, they alert you of potential issues that may not be evident with monitoring mechanisms.

AKIPS receives, filters, displays, logs, reports and alerts on syslog messages from any device on your network, notifying you of critical issues that are likely to impact end user experience and disrupt your business.

Features:

  • IPv4 & IPv6
  • Syslog forwarding to 10 destinations
  • Create alerts based on powerful regex rules, time of day, devices and groups
  • View and produce interactive time-series graphs of syslog statistics
  • Filter via IPv4/v6, regex, date/time, devices and groups
  • Up to 3 years of history

SNMP Traps

Traps are an important part of any network performance monitoring strategy. As a passive protocol, they alert you to potential issues that may be missed between traditional SNMP polling cycles.

AKIPS receives, filters, displays, logs, reports and alerts on traps from any device on your network, notifying you of critical issues that are likely to impact end user experience and disrupt your business.

Features:

  • IPv4 & IPv6
  • SNMPv2 community authentication
  • SNMPv3 authenticated (SHA/MD5) and encrypted (DES, 3DES, AES128/192/256)
  • Trap forwarding to 10 destinations
  • Full vendor MIB object decoding
  • Create alerts based on powerful regex rules, time of day, devices and groups
  • View and produce interactive time-series graphs of syslog statistics
  • Filter via IPv4/v6, message content regex, date/time, device and group
  • Up to 3 years of history

Most traps contains between 5 and 10 MIB objects, not just a single object.
The following trap is from a typical link failure:

SNMPv2-MIB.snmpTrapOID: IF-MIB.linkUp
IF-MIB.ifIndex: 3
IF-MIB.ifAdminStatus: 1,up
IF-MIB.ifOperStatus: 1,up
IF-MIB.ifDescr: Serial1/0
IF-MIB.ifType: 22,propPointToPointSerial
OLD-CISCO-INTERFACES-MIB.locIfReason: Keepalive OK

The following is an OSPF trap:

SNMPv2-MIB.snmpTrapOID: OSPF-TRAP-MIB.ospfNbrStateChange
OSPF-MIB.ospfRouterId: 10.2.20.1
OSPF-MIB.ospfNbrIpAddr: 10.2.2.122
OSPF-MIB.ospfNbrAddressLessIndex: 0
OSPF-MIB.ospfNbrRtrId: 10.2.27.1
OSPF-MIB.ospfNbrState: 8,full

The following is an example Cisco syslog message sent as a trap:

SNMPv2-MIB.snmpTrapOID: CISCO-SYSLOG-MIB.clogMessageGenerated
CISCO-SYSLOG-MIB.clogHistFacility: OSPFv3
CISCO-SYSLOG-MIB.clogHistSeverity: 6,notice
CISCO-SYSLOG-MIB.clogHistMsgName: ADJCHG
CISCO-SYSLOG-MIB.clogHistMsgText: Process 1, Nbr 10.2.20.1 on Serial1/0 from LOADING to FULL, Loading Done
CISCO-SYSLOG-MIB.clogHistTimestamp: 422601

Unused Interfaces

Just because a cable is plugged into a switch port does not mean it is actually being used

Most networks have a large amount of unused infrastructure, but knowing which parts is the big challenge. The AKIPS unused interfaces report solves this difficult problem.

AKIPS constantly monitors and records interface state changes for the entire network. This information can be queried via a simple GUI to determine how much capacity is available and which interfaces have not been used over a selected time period.

Features:
  • Time range selectable by the last 1, 2, 5, 7, 14, 30 & 90 days
  • Report filtering by:
    • Group
    • Profile
    • Device regex
    • Interface type
  • Summary totals and free for each device
  • Detailed breakdown showing:
    • Device name
    • Interface name
    • Used / Free
    • Current interface state
    • Last time interface changed state
    • VLANs the interface is assigned to

Switch Port Mapper

The AKIPS Switch Port Mapper regularly collects MAC, IPv4 ARP, IPv6 Neighbour and bridge tables from all monitored devices. This data is then collated and processed via a unique algorithm to determine which MAC addresses are connected to each switch port.

The user interface quickly allows you to locate any IP or MAC address on your network, and display its location history over the last 60 days.

Features:

  • Search by MAC, IPv4 or IPv6 addresses
  • MAC to Switch Port, Vendor, IPv4 & IPv6 mappings
  • MAC location history for the last 60 days

Netflow

AKIPS flow traffic analyser is a unified solution that provides the visibility of how your bandwidth is being consumed by users and applications. It is useful for forensics, capacity planning and traffic profile analysis.

Features:

  • Scales to over 1 million flows per second
  • Netflow v5, v9, IPFIX, jFlow & Netstream
  • Cisco ASA support
  • UDP (unreliable) & SCTP (reliable) transport
  • Flow fanout to 10 destinations
  • Configurable dashboard
  • IPv4 & IPv6 reporting
  • Interactive SVG bar & time-series graphs
  • Top 100,000 talkers, listeners, conversations, protocols & flows
  • Geolocation country identifier
  • Total counts per exporter
  • Number of conversations per source IP
  • Address & protocol filtering
  • Unknown protocols report
  • User defined TCP/UDP protocol definitions
  • SNMP discovered flow exporters report

Auto Discovery

Full auto network discovery - without the mess of CSV files or manual device additions

The AKIPS network discovery removes the complex and time consuming task of discovering your entire network. The unique discovery algorithm performs non-intrusive rate limited PING and SNMP scans using your predefined address ranges and credentials.

A typical network of 5000 switches and routers completes in approximately 10 minutes. Reports will then start to be populated with vital statistics.

Features:

  • Rate limited IPv4 & IPv6 PING scan using user defined ranges
  • SNMP v1, v2 & v3 discovery
  • Duplicate device detection using SNMPv3 engine ID and device MACs
  • Device filtering by sysName, Vendor, Model or Location
  • Vendor specific MIB Object detection and configuration
  • Daily scheduled discovery or rewalk
  • Discover a single device or entire network
  • User defined auto grouping of devices, interfaces and technologies
  • Post discovery site specific configuration scripting

Service Fanout / Forwarding

AKIPS has built-in capabilities to forward raw IPv4 UDP packets for the following services:

  • syslog
  • SNMP Traps
  • Netflow

Many devices have limits on the number of destinations that syslog/traps/netflow packets can be sent to. Service forwarding takes the CPU load off the end devices as it only has to send packets to a single destination. Up to 10 IPv4 forward addresses can be defined for each service. The original source IP address is maintained, therefore the receiving host does not know the packet was forwarded.
