We are pleased to announce that NPM version 10.6 is now available for download.


In the previous version, NPM 10.5, we shipped some strong features such as IP multicast monitoring and network route monitoring with support for RIP v2, OSPF v2, BGP protocols. So, what’s new in NPM 10.6?


Web-based Reporting

NPM 10.6 allows you to create, edit and manage reports right from the Orion® Web console. We have added such flexibility and simplicity on the Web UI that you will love it more than the desktop-based Report Writer. (The original Orion Report Writer is still available.) Using the new Web-based Report Writer you can:

  • Create new custom reports
  • Edit existing reports
  • Duplicate existing reports
  • Add custom tables and custom charts on reports
  • Add data series to charts
  • Duplicate individual reporting resources (CPU load, packet loss, etc.) to add reporting data for more objects (nodes or interfaces)
  • Change report layouts
  • Preview reports before running them
  • Save and execute reports manually
  • Schedule reports for automated delivery

New Out-of-the-Box / Built-in Reports

There’s more to reporting. We have added a bunch of new built-in reports for out-of-the-box value. These new reports can also be edited and duplicated as required. Some of these are:

  • Top 10 Interfaces Transmitting Traffic
  • Top 10 Interfaces Receiving Traffic
  • Top 10 Least Available Interfaces
  • Top 10 Interfaces Discarding Traffic


Worldwide Map (Integration with OpenStreetMap)

Worldwide Map has the capability to display the status of nodes or an aggregated group of nodes over dynamically updated street data. With the 10.6 release, NPM integrates with OpenStreetMap making it easy to layout and view where your equipment is, and it's relative status. You can drill down right from the world map down to the country, state, town, and street to get a bird’s eye view of your location/site and see device status on real-time maps. You can additionally show NPM objects on MapQuest maps added as a resource on NPM's Web Console.

Universal Device Poller (UnDP) on Maps

With NPM 10.6 you can now add UnDP objects on network maps using Orion Network Atlas™. There’s a new map tooltip for UnDP which displays UnDP statistics such as OID being polled, current value, and computed status (using thresholds). There’s also a new page for setting the "warning" and "critical" UnDP thresholds.

Other New Enhancement and Feature Improvements

  • F5® device support (Interface monitoring for F5 APM® via F5-BIG-IP®-SYSTEM-MIB)
  • Functionality to cancel “scheduled unmanage actions” directly from the node management resource
  • New reporting entities (wireless devices, hardware health, F5, fibre channel switches)
  • Improvements on Syslog & SNMP trap rules
