    About the Realtime Monitor

    The Realtime Monitor module in Network and Security Manager (NSM) enables you to monitor real-time status and statistics about all the managed devices in your network at a glance. Features of Realtime Monitor enabled for M Series and MX Series include viewing device status, viewing monitor alarm status, and setting the polling interval for device alarm status. You can use the Realtime Monitor to identify problems and discover trends across multiple geographic regions and functional areas from a central management location.

    The Realtime Monitor can also help you quickly identify potential device, network, and system-level problems, such as:

    • Configuration status—At the device level, you can monitor the changing status of one or more security devices in real time.
    • Connection status—At the network level, you can monitor problems that could lead to failed devices.

    The Realtime Monitor does the work of a management expert by first gathering information about specific processes and network activity, then color-coding each event to organize problems.
