New and Changed Features

This section describes the new and enhanced features in IP/MPLSView Release 6.3.0.

Web Interface Enhancements

  • Enhanced topology, device, and traffic management—The following network monitoring and visualizing features are now available from the IP/MPLSView Release 6.3.0 Web interface:
    • Protocol status of BGP neighbors, IS-IS adjacencies, and OSPF neighbors from a node.
    • Node, link, interface, and tunnel details.
    • Node, link, interface, and tunnel live traffic charts, with configured and policed bandwidth also shown.
    • LSP tunnels at a node.
    • Periodic automatic synchronization of events from the Event Browser.
    • Historical device performance charts of system uptime, CPU temperature, CPU usage, and memory usage of a node.
    • Network Summary pane.

Configuration Management

  • Configuration Revision Manager—In IP/MPLSView Release 6.3.0, the Configuration Revision Manager and Task Manager support the following features from the Web interface:
    • Periodically collect new revisions of configuration files using a Scheduling Live Network Collection or Network Config Data Collection task.
    • Check in configuration files whenever changes have been made.
    • Store multiple versions of the device configuration with timestamps and version numbers.
    • Select a router from a summary list and display the configuration file or multiple revisions of the configuration file.
    • Compare two revisions of the configuration file side-by-side, with the differences highlighted in color.
  • Hardware Inventory chassis view—In IP/MPLSView Release 6.3.0, the Hardware Inventory chassis view is supported:
    • Equipment view displays a graphical representation of a device chassis.
    • Drill down in the equipment view to display card and device details.

CLI Capabilities

  • Enhanced Run CLI Capabilities—Extends the Run CLI Capabilities to groups of commands and groups of devices:
    • Use multiple commands on a device.
    • Use a command on multiple devices.
    • Select a group of commands to use.
    • Pass command parameters to the CLI through the GUI.

Fault Management

  • Enhanced Web Diagnostic Manager—Extends the Diagnostic Manager to groups of devices and adds customization to the diagnostic testing:
    • Ping or traceroute from the IP/MPLSView server to a device.
    • Ping or traceroute from a device to another device.
    • Ping or traceroute to the management or loopback interface IP address.
    • Ping or traceroute from a device to multiple devices.
    • Create device groups and ping or traceroute from multiple devices to multiple devices.
    • Ping or traceroute based on customized advanced groups using user-definable diagnostic commands.
  • Enhanced Live Event Browser—Extends the Event Browser capabilities:
    • Display a list of events as they are received.
    • Chart live events in real time.
    • Chart interface traffic threshold crossing alert events.
    • Chart LSP tunnel traffic threshold crossing alert events.
    • Display a list of LSP tunnel traffic events as they are received.
    • Display a chart of the event count in real time.
    • Load, synchronize, update, comment, clear, acknowledge, print, and post events.
    • Customize the Event Browser UI.
    • Retrieve events using the RESTful API.

Performance Management

  • Enhanced performance management—Extends the performance management capabilities:
    • Retrieve link traffic using the RESTful API.
    • Display summary reports for egress traffic.

System Administration

  • Distributed performance management tasks on Spark clusters—Extends the traffic data collector cluster to a Spark cluster for improved scaling in large networks. You can add, remove, start, and stop tasks on the Spark cluster.

RESTful API

  • RESTful API support—IP/MPLSView Release 6.3.0 supports the Representation State Transfer (RESTful) API.

    You can use the RESTful API to enable northbound systems interacting with higher-level applications to receive various data sets by means of standard HTTP GET requests. The RESTful API enables you to query information about the network topology, performance management, hardware components, events, and traffic collection.
