A single virtual machine can monitor networks as large as 100,000 interfaces*. Windows (server OS or desktop OS), 4GB of RAM, and 20GB of storage space are all you need.
Our solution is coded in C and C++, one of the top 3 languages in energy consumption, memory consumption, and time-to-execute.(1)
It is also lightweight because the SNMP requests and replies are optimized to minimize the number of packets and spread out to avoid impacting network devices.
• We don't need a webserver.
• We don't need a separate database.
• We don't need .NET.
• We don't need Java.
Such a light footprint system takes less support and monitoring – it just works.
* Over 200,000 interfaces supported with a single physical server.
