proNX Service Manager Dashboard Overview
The proNX Service Manager Dashboard is a thin, web-based client that allows you to perform tasks such as viewing alarms and events, detecting network trends and anomalies, and checking the network inventory. It offers a quick way for you to assess the health of the managed network from any supported browser as long as the browser is on a machine that can reach the PSM server.
For a list of supported browsers, see the PSM Installation and Administration Guide.
Unlike the PSM client, the proNX Service Manager Dashboard does not require Juniper Networks client software to be installed. Instead, users point their browsers to the PSM server to log on. User authentication for the proNX Service Manager Dashboard is performed in exactly the same manner as user authentication for the PSM client, which, by default, is by using the local RADIUS server. The browser uses HTTPS to connect to the PSM server.
The proNX Service Manager Dashboard complements the PSM client by providing an accessible alternative for monitoring the managed network. While the PSM client provides full PSM functionality, the proNX Service Manager Dashboard focuses on monitoring, visualization, and providing you with indications of network health. Summary information is presented in a way that allows you to see network issues and anomalies at a glance. You can discover network elements, view and acknowledge alarms, and check on the health of network elements all from a browser.
