IQM Key Features

IQM System Key Features

  • Security: IQM system does not influence on operability of a network at refusal of elements of system.
  • Simplicity of use: Training of a specialist take 1-2 work days. The round-the-clock service of system doesn't demand high vocational training of specialists.
  • Speed of commissioning:  Convenience and intuitiveness in work with system allow to spread monitoring of a network in 1000 agents in the shortest possible time defined several hours.
  • Possibility of monitoring of a network on SNMP from the side of the agent and the control system (functionality of the distributed SNMP collector).
  • Possibility of measurements and control of qualitative parameters from the agent on network, transport, and also and at the applied levels: for control of network services (FTP, HTTP, IMAP, RTSP, SMTP, TFTP и т.д.).
  • User tests: Mechanism of interpreter of the test allow to user creates any tests, to take any measurements or collect any working parameters from network devices
  • Non-interference in address space of the client. Use of the mechanism of the interpreter of test along with other advantages allows not to include the agent in address space of a controlled network. Use of the mechanism of interpreter test.
  • Possibility of control the mass configuration of agents.
  • Possibility of a combination of the reports allowing to define unambiguously the service degradation/refusal reason, to check correctness of the Q&S configuration on controlled part of a network.
  • Possibility of discovery the penalty (passed with violation of a contract strip) the traffic on a network.
  • Independence from producers of the network equipment.
  • Possibility of work with producers measuring agents such as Cisco (IP SLA), Juniper (RPM), Accedian Networks (EtherNid, MetroNid), RAD MiNID, any devises with support TWAMP (RFC5357).
  • The functionality of IQM agents is available on various hardware platforms and network devices of other producers:
    • PC-computers
    • i686-pc-linux services
    • Routers NSG-700/900
    • Routers Microtik RouterBoard
    • Compact computers Moxa on the basis of the RISC processor (Moxa universal communicators)
    • GlobalScale Plug-computers on ARM-platform: SheevaPlug, DreamPlug, MiraBox, GuruPlug.
    • AK-systems Plug-computers on ARM-platform.
  • Possibility of use when testing standard echo-services (ICMP, UDP) supported on the client's CPE (switches, routers) that does not demand additional installation and special agent on the client’s side.
  • Possibility of carrying out unilateral measurements of all parameters (strip, delays, losses, dzhitter, penal traffic, volume of the obtained data) between IQM agents.
  • All components of IQM system (measuring agents, control system/reporting/alarm system) are completely developed by the programmers of IQM development dept. of the international company "Photon-L".
  • Technical characteristics of system aren't military secret, are open and available on the site of the company of the producer.
