performance and user experience to the forefront. Network
management can make the difference between an eBusiness
initiative being a success or failure. Effective network management
requires a solution that treats your network as an integral part of
your business. Network/T Advanced Edition Option Pack offers
extended functionality and manageability to today’s business
owners. Options include:
Network/T™ Application Response Option
Application response time has become the critical measure of
overall Quality of Service for network users. The Network/T
Application Response Option monitors the actual end-to-end
response time for targeted applications across enterprise infra-
structures. It precisely reflects the performance of the application
as experienced by end users throughout the organization, even
enabling performance management of applications not designed
for such management.
Network/7 ATM Management Option
In today’s dynamic and competitive inter-networked marketplace,
businesses are increasingly dependent on ATM networks to carry
various types of information, such as voice, video, and application-
specific data, and require the means to manage such networks in
the same manner as their LANs. The Network/7 ATM Management
Option provides monitoring and administration for the entire ATM
network, including hardware, software, services, and devices that
provide connectivity, and individual ATM circuits.
Network/7 DECnet Manager Option
The Network/7 DECnet Manager Option provides comprehensive
network management capabilities to improve DECnet network

Network/7 Frame Relay Option
The Network/7 Frame Relay Option provides monitoring and admin-
istration for the entire frame relay network. This includes hardware,
software, services, and devices that provide connectivity — as well
as individual frame relay circuits — from a user perspective rather
than the network provider’s perspective.
Neiwork/7” Response Probe Option
As network usage increases, network response time has become a
critical factor in overall Quality of Service. The Network/7 Response
Probe Option automatically collects end-user response time and
performance metrics for major network protocols, including TCP/IP,
NetBIOS, IPX/SPX, and SNA. Working with Network/7, the Response
Probe Option helps managers ensure the availability and optimal
performance of their networks improving delivery of applications
and services to business users.

graphical interface for viewing enterprise-wide information pertain-
ing to SNA network subsystems. This option is a client/server
application that integrates CA-NetSpy® on the MVS platform, with
SNA Real World Interface™ and SNA Manager Problem Analysis
components on Windows NT workstations. It also enables
CA-NetSpy to feed performance and alert data to Network/T.

ness communications and service delivery, highlights the need for
powertul, yet easy-to-use diagnostic and troubleshooting tools.
Network/T’s SuperPing Path Doctor Option enables quick and
accurate network problem identification and resolution. It provides

ing by visually representing the paths between any two points
