Dynamic Rule Generation (DRG)

Your Challenge

Scalability vs. Aggregation?

Classic fault management approaches include a built-in dilemma: Scalability vs. Aggregation.

On the one hand it is unfeasible to pre-create all possible rules, while on the other hand not having enough rules will leave you with insufficient data to troubleshoot complex scenarios. In addition, more network elements lead to more rules.

Our Solution

The first self-regulating Root Cause Analysis

Dynamic Rule Generation (DRG) expands and contracts rules that automatically troubleshoot your network by anticipating all possible scenarios from master rule sets

DRG is like cruise control for your network rule set. It can automatically expand and contract rule sets to keep troubleshooting data at optimum levels constantly, without human intervention.
The StableNet® Discovery generates most of the rules automatically. Further, individual business processes and workflows can be designed on rule sets.

StableNet® allows for bi-directional ticket integration which can be customized for automated troubleshooting via alarm scripts according to your individual business workflows.

With StableNet®, standard workflows can be automated, enabling you to focus on the really important issues in your network. Less rules – less maintenance efforts!

Stop manually creating rules! Take your hands off the keyboard and allow the DRG cruise control to take over!

Learn more about DRG in our webinar recording on YouTube.

Technical Benefits

Master rule sets

  • Making sure all required rules are met, without manual pre-creation, providing you with sufficient data.

Auto-troubleshooting

  • Bi-directional ticket integration which can be customized to your business workflows.

Rules are kept up to date

  • A new monitor for each unique alarm that meets its filter criterion is created; the dynamically created monitor only reacts on the value automatically inserted in the monitor property.

Combine events and measurements

  • DRG works for syslog, trap, status, and script measurements.

Your RoI

Dark NOC

  • Reduced need for human intervention due to robotically expanding and contracting rule sets.

Transparency

  • Enabling of a swift service impact analysis.

Business processes

  • Monitoring not only of technical events but also of business processes.

Unified approach

  • Because StableNet® is a unified network management solution, fault management contains all network information.

Automated Provisioning & Orchestration

Zero-touch flow-through provisioning

Backup Configuration

  • Backup and restore of network device and systems configurations, backup jobs (scheduled, on-demand, or ad-hoc), system-aided comparison of backed-up configurations.

Centralized Device Configuration

  • Efficient handling of Configuration Jobs by centrally controlled, distributed StableNet® Agents, mass configurations (tracking errors, replays for error fixing, etc.).

Compliance & Policy Management

  • Policy checks on devices and systems and execution of defined configuration actions via distributed StableNet® Agents.

 

 

Vulnerability Management

  • Vulnerability checking on network devices, security compliance checking (e.g. PCI-DSS, NSA recommendation, etc.).

EoL & EoS Management

  • Identify and report on network and IT devices being listed End-of-Life, respectively End-of-Services (but it is likely that you are still paying maintenance on).

 

 

Security Management

  • Discovery of network and services infrastructure and topology, inventory and change tracking, systems security and role-based access control.

Tagging & Grouping - A key to automation

A small revolution in the way that data can be handled for management and orchestration

See Tagging and Grouping in action in our webinar recording on YouTube.

Unlimited, dynamic structure of elements

Tagging in StableNet® does practically allow for a complete flexibility of any mix of tagging attributes and the order the tree navigation will show up.

Tagging uses an “inheritance data model”. The inventory tree hierarchy can be modified or configured as required. Multiple tree type views can be preset or can be set even ad-hoc. For example, you can create a view with a first level containing countries, the second level cities, and the third level the brand of the routers.

With the StableNet® Tagging and Grouping capabilities, you have all the relevant network data at your fingertips. Large amounts of information can be correlated and processed helping you to focus on your individual tasks and optimize your daily workflows.

Tagging is more than just unlimited categories

Many Tree Type Views are possible, e.g.

  • Vendor – Model – Device
  • Service – Area – Utilization
  • Service Problem – “Corporate Customer” – Affected Area
  • Service Problem – Vendor – “Most Affected Devices”
  • Service Issue – Causing Sub-Service – “Causing System”
  • Device “Capacity PM Issue” – Affected Services – Affected Customers
