The VMware Smart Assurance Network Protocol Manager includes the following components:

  • Network Protocol Manager for BGP

  • Network Protocol Manager for EIGRP

  • Network Protocol Manager for IS-IS

  • Network Protocol Manager for OSPF

    VMware Smart Assurance Network Protocol Manager represents four VMware Smart Assurance Domain Managers. A Domain Manager is a service-assurance application that is associated with a particular type of information-technology domain, such as networks, systems, applications, or application services. For Network Protocol Manager, the domain is a routing-protocol network, that is, a Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP), Intermediate System to Intermediate System (IS-IS), or Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) distributed application that is running in an IP network. Each Domain Manager is autonomous in the sense that it:

  • Maintains its own data models, repository, and problem signatures.

  • Monitors and analyzes the discovered objects in its own domain.
