The IP NAS solution architecture consists of the following components:
IP Availability Manager — A Domain Manager that discovers, monitors, and analyzes failures in the underlying IP network. With the NAS Extension applied, the Availability Manager discovers and monitors NAS devices, correlates events, diagnoses root-cause problems, and calculates impacts.
Global Manager — Abstracts and consolidates information from the Domain Managers and deduplicates notifications.
Global Console — Provides display capability for notifications, maps, and other graphical information.
