Solarwinds Network Automation Manager
Integrated network automation software for large or complex environments
Integrated network automation and operations management software for on-premises, cloud, and hybrid IT environments
The larger and more complex the network, the greater the need for network automation and integrated operations monitoring and management. SolarWinds® Network Automation Manager (NAM) is designed to cover large or complex environments with comprehensive performance, traffic, WAN, and switch port monitoring, automated change and configuration, and IP address management in a single, unified software solution.
Complete your IT management toolset with SolarWinds® Network Automation Manager (NAM)
Integrated Automation Management Solution for Enterprise Scale
Scale environments from 1,000 to tens of thousands of nodes with comprehensive performance, traffic, WAN, and switch port monitoring, automated change and configuration management, and IP address management in an integrated network automation software solution.
Network Operations and Automation Management
NAM network automation software can provide insights into network fault, network availability, performance, bandwidth, configuration, and IP address management in a single console.
Customize to Your Needs
No two networks are alike. Dashboards, maps, alerts, and reports are easily customized to accommodate the specifics of your environment.
Quick and Easy to Implement
Enterprise network monitoring with do-it-yourself installation and deployment means you can be up and running faster without relying on professional services or consultants, so you can get back to the other projects on your list.
- Customizable, single-pane-of-glass network monitoring software
Create custom, web-based network, traffic, WAN, and switch port dashboards, views, and charts.
- Topology- and dependency-aware intelligent alerts
Respond to multiple condition checks, correlated events, network topology, and device dependencies.
- Real-time config change notification and compliance auditing
Receive details and comparisons of config changes to demonstrate compliance with regulatory
- IP alerting, troubleshooting, and reporting
Know when IPs conflict, subnets/scopes are depleted, or DNS entries don’t match.
- Automated capacity forecasting, alerting, and reporting
Automatically calculate exhaustion dates via customizable thresholds based on peak and average usage.
- Dynamic wired and wireless network discovery and mapping
Automatically map devices, display performance metrics, and link connection and utilization.
- Wireless network performance and traffic monitoring and management
Retrieve performance and bandwidth metrics for autonomous APs, wireless controllers, and clients.
- Integrated DHCP and DNS administration
Find an open IP and make the DHCP reservation and DNS entries in one motion from a single console.
- Monitor switch port usage to identify performance, users, and devices
Locate connected devices and users, investigate incidents, detect rogue devices, and monitor capacity.
- Hardware health monitoring and alerting
Monitor, alert, and report on key device metrics, such as temperature, fan speed, and power supply.
- Customizable performance and availability reports
Schedule and generate custom network performance reports with over 100 out-of-the-box templates
- High availability
Instantaneous failover for your business-critical network management system.
- Dynamic statistical network performance baselines
Alert and report on deviations from normal operation by dynamically calculating baseline thresholds
- Orion® Remote Controller
Distribute load on your monitoring environment by deploying Orion Remote Collectors (ORCs) – lightweight polling engines. Supported with node-based licensing for NAM 2020.2.1 and SAM 2020.2.1.
ADVANCED NETWORK TROUBLESHOOTING
Reduce network outages and quickly detect, diagnose, and resolve network performance issues. With critical path hop- by-hop analysis and visualization along the service delivery path, you can view network performance and traffic details, regardless of device location.
NETWORK TRAFFIC AND BANDWIDTH ANALYSIS
Alert on network bandwidth and traffic patterns with up to one-minute granularity. Collect, monitor, and analyze NetFlow, sFlow®, J-Flow™, IPFIX, and NetStream™ data to identify how much traffic is on your network and which applications are being used.
AUTOMATED CONFIG AND CHANGE MANAGEMENT
Monitor, back up, and bulk-deploy network device configurations, so you can recover quickly from hardware faults and configuration errors. Receive real- time change notifications and help ensure devices are configured and operating in compliance with regulatory standards.
SWITCH PORT AND END-USER MONITORING AND TRACKING
Know how switches and ports are being used, and which switches are nearing capacity. Know who and what is connected to your network, and when and where they’re connected. Track endpoint devices by MAC and IP address on your wired and wireless networks.
WAN PERFORMANCE MONITORING
Using Cisco® IP SLA technology, you can simulate traffic data to test the network between Cisco routers or a remote IP device to monitor the performance of key apps and services.
IP ADDRESS MANAGEMENT
Automated subnet discovery and IP scanning scours your network, so you know how IPs are used. Know when IPs conflict, subnets/scopes are depleted, or DNS entries don’t match. Find an open IP and make the DHCP reservation and DNS entries in one motion from a single console
