HP has updated its Network Node Manager to version 9, offering performance management and virtualization support. Also, as noted in this PC World story, this version is the first edition that allows administrators to see directly from the console how congested their networks are, and what the root causes may be for this congestion.

"NNMi, formerly part of HP's now deprecated OpenView brand of IT management products, provides tools for network administrator to catalogue and monitor all the routers, switches and other devices on the network. The software sends out alerts whenever one of these nodes go down and can even predict when a node might fail.

"Network performance management software typically aggregates and extends this sort of monitoring into an overall report of how well the network as a whole is performing.

"While network performance management software has been available for some time, even from HP itself, HP is hoping that customers will see the value in having such capabilities folded into their network fault management software."
