PREGINET uses cacti. It is used for graphing PREGINET partners' network bandwidth and system resources at the NOC. It has a visualization feature called a weathermap that gives a bird's eye-view of the current status (network utilization) of the whole network. Together with the smokeping application, PREGINET's network monitoring system is capable of notifying the network engineers of down links via email in real time.

Trouble Ticketing System:
Currently, PREGINET is implementing an internal trouble ticketing system called Trac to keep track of network issues such as down links, system errors, and security attacks.

Network Probe - network monitor
Do you know what's really traveling through your network? Are you having problems finding the sources of network slowdowns?
Network Probe is the ultimate network monitor and protocol analyzer to monitor network traffic, and will help you find the sources of any network slow-downs in a matter of seconds.

Collect and analyze data from multiple probes using the Network Probe Enterprise version for a total traffic overview of all your networks.

Free Network Monitor
Network Probe will show you which protocols are being used on your network, which hosts are sending and receiving data, where the traffic is coming from, and when all this happens.

Instantly get an overview of the throughput of the network being monitored and the number of hosts, conversations, and protocols seen on the network.

Network Probe will quickly give you an overview of the most active protocols, talkers, listeners, hosts, and conversations on you network.

Proactive Alarms Searching and Filtering Selected Display:
Configure Network Probe to notify you if anything out of the ordinary happens and proactively fix the problem before it grows into a serious one.

Quickly search for any host, protocol, or conversation. Just start typing in the search field and Network Probe will suggest entries found on your network.

Configure Network Probe to monitor your own selection of protocols, hosts, and conversations to keep a watchful eye on activity important on your network.

Network & Resource Monitoring Made Simple
Stay in control, and find potential network or resource bottlenecks before they manifest themselves. With Bytemon you can monitor everything and plan ahead: Real-time information about the condition of your networks and servers, always at your fingertips.

Monitoring the availability and usage of network and computing resources plays an important role in most businesses and organizations. To be able to manage networks components and computing resources proactively it is vital to have a comprehensive monitoring system in place.

Bytemon can be used to monitor resource availability and usage as well as performance data of all kinds, such as network performance parameters (bandwidth usage, protocols usage), system performance parameters (CPU and memory usage), the availability of network resources, and the network latency of access to remote devices and services.

Bytemon lets you monitor the availability, current status and usage of key resources in your network:

Traffic Monitoring: Bandwidth and Usage Monitoring of your networking equipment (hubs, routers, switches)
Network Protocol Usage Analysis: Packet filtering allows you to analyze network traffic by protocols, source/destination IP etc.
Performance Monitoring for servers and any networked devices (network printers, network storage)
Availability and Latency Monitoring of remote devices and servers like mail servers or web servers
Bytemon allows you to quickly and easily set up and run a distributed monitoring system for networks of all sizes. With just a few mouse clicks you can analyze the amount of data flowing through routers and leased lines, monitor CPU utilization, or check disk space usage.

The Bytemon Windows service runs on one or more computers in your network for 24 hours a day and collects information on network and resource usage. With the Bytemon client, the collected data can be visualized and analyzed in an easy and flexible way. With Bytemon's thumbnail charts, you can see the status of remote devices at a glance, with only a minimal screen footprint.
