A BRIEF OVERVIEW
HEAVEN NODES allows the network manager to:
HEAVEN NODES provides a wide range of advanced features to the network administrator including:
Optionally, HEAVEN NODES works in conjunction with or without the following concentrators and/or Protocol Analyzers:
The following OEMs work in the Windows mode with Heaven Nodes:
HEAVEN NODES allows the information that each above OEM deposits into an ASCII or other flat file to be placed within the relational database. This provides for unparalleled data acquisition and analysis per node within a single program environment.
HEAVEN NODES Management can reside alongside the MAC layer management software in the network management workstation. It saves its information to a central database on a file server using the Btrieve relational database. The data gathered is impressive -- 1100+ items in 1.5 seconds on a Novell network and an average workstation.
When a user logs in, Heaven Nodes downloads a program called Investigator. HEAVEN NODES Investigator is not a terminate-and-stay resident (TSR) program, so it does not stay in the DOS workstations' memory after it completes its inventory. The Investigator reports hardware and software configurations back to HEAVEN NODES. If a change in the hardware or software configuration is detected, HEAVEN NODES will alert the network manager. The manager can then take the appropriate action before problems arise. This feature, when used in conjunction with other cooperative network management systems, gives the network administrator the proactive edge to network administration and troubleshooting. The Investigator can also be configured to automatically LOGOFF any new (unauthorized) workstation, until the network administrator approves.
If more information is required about the software on the workstation local drives, another program called SoftScan/dTechtiv can be executed at Login. SoftScan can be configured to either look for certain software packages on all local drives, or to look for certain software packages on certain drives, or a combination of both. This is further enhanced by allowing scans for all files, all executables (EXE's and COM's), and/or all extended executables.
HEAVEN NODES offers cabling maintenance and controls. HEAVEN NODES allows you to maintain wiring specifications for each node in the database. The Wiring database will maintain information on additional wiring as well, such as voice and video cabling for the specified location. The wiring specifications include wiring locations, wire types, identification information, reference drawing designations and testing data for quick reference.
HEAVEN NODES provides complete facilities management for all of the nodes attached to the network. Reports showing equipment listings and settings by node are available, as well as printouts of the cabling and TCP/IP databases. HEAVEN NODES also presents reports based on both hardware and software configuration changes along with any system administrator notes. There are standard reports, or using the AD HOC Report Generator, a user can filter any database item. Filtering can be positive or negative, via text contained in the definition, presence or not, sorted various ways, etc.
HEAVEN NODES supports alarm monitoring through DSI Expressview/ Windows DDE and HEAVEN NODES' own ALARM MONITOR and DDE. The Network Administrator can set a time interval via ALARM MONITOR and thus monitor all logins on a timely basis for critical changes.
HEAVEN NODES supports remote investigation through Recon. What do network managers do when a PC will not connect to the network and they cannot look for configuration changes through conventional HEAVEN NODES? Recon does it automatically! Through Recon, the network manager has a way to establish a base line/comparison of the hardware/software of any workstation that for some reason can no longer login to the network. With Recon, the network manager can download the configuration information, of the workstation in question, to a floppy diskette, take that to the PC that is off-line, and Recon will then display the present configuration of the workstation, comparing it to the past configuration, and marking each item that has changed since the last successful login. This same process can be used with sneaker-net; i.e., no network: An inventory of non-networked PCs can be kept on floppy diskettes and a central database by assigning a unique address, pseudo or real, to each P.C.
A GENERAL OVERVIEW
HEAVEN NODES runs under Microsoft Windows 3.+ and uses the Btrieve relational file management system. The Management module of HEAVEN NODES is the Windows program that manages the node configuration database. The program does not require the user to load a Btrieve NLM or VAP, but one could utilize this feature of Novell.. HEAVEN NODES is the program that the network manager will routinely use to manage all other management programs. HEAVEN NODES has been in development since December of I989 and is now on its seventh release of the second version.
HEAVEN NODES has the ability to automatically take workstation hardware and software inventories upon user login and report current configurations and any changes (since the baseline login - first, or last accepted) into the management database. This provides an automatic inventory of PC hardware and software on the LAN. If the workstation cannot login, HEAVEN NODES Recon can download the last valid configuration to a floppy, which can then be taken to the PC in question, and checked off-line for any discrepancies/changes in the hardware or software - a current maximum of 600 items concerning the PC and 500 items concerning the network, plus any local hard drive information..
HEAVEN NODES Network Management software is the integrated solution to node configuration and facilities management. The dTECH Group's HEAVEN NODES provides the control needed to manage the workstations. HEAVEN NODES is a network database management system, a network workstation and cabling system, and a facilities management system rolled into a single program. It monitors and reports workstation configuration changes in both hardware and software to the HEAVEN NODES management database. The network manager can manage the network from the workstation level up through the concentrator to the file server. HEAVEN NODES also manages multiple concentrators and file servers.
HEAVEN NODES has been designed with the network/systems manager in mind. One of the most time consuming tasks in managing a network is hunting down workstation configuration changes that cause a malfunction on the network. Users are usually reluctant to tell the network manager that they changed an interrupt or re-engineered the system initialization files. This problem becomes compounded as the network grows in size and across multiple platforms and buildings. HEAVEN NODES solves these problems and additionally gives the network manager an accurate inventory/equipment listing on each workstation without a personal visit ,or the use of a screwdriver.
HEAVEN NODES includes the ability to monitor Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPSs) that provide a Novell interface or RS-232 command instructions. This multi-tasking UPS monitoring is accomplished via a serial cable, an out-of-band modem, or an X.25 connection. These intelligent UPSs contain an I/0 port that can be interrogated by HEAVEN NODES and provides the network manager knowledge of the real time status of the UPSs.
To effectively manage a network, the network manager must know the network's configuration details. When a user calls with a problem on a certain application, the manager wants to know how much memory the user has, how many serial ports he or she has, or what IRQs are being used. The network manager will also want to know if any component or configuration has been recently changed. HEAVEN NODES provides first-rate documentation of LAN resources to put the answer at the manager's fingertips.
Corporate asset management is another reason for maintaining an inventory. The financial division will want to know the whereabouts of all computers and peripherals on the network. It's also the best way to keep track of software licenses.
Once, creating and maintaining a network inventory meant going from one station to another with a screwdriver and a note pad, opening each machine to list its components manually. If one could take the time to actually complete the job, it was yet another major hurdle to keep the database current. Aside from a serious time commitment, this method required that the person(s) doing the inventory be familiar with each type of device in use, and it assumed that there was documentation for each expansion card, peripheral and motherboard so that the switch and jumper settings could be translated into accurate configuration information. Heaven Nodes solves these problems and helps manage the network, all at the same time!
