Everyone knows how to use a browser. These tips are meant to improve the AVNOC experience.
There are also some hints on what to do to disable browser cacheing. Browser cacheing needs to be disabled so your web browser ALWAYS loads the page from the site.
Here are the work flow para metrics and the installation strategy used by AVNOC to deliver products to your network or your customers network.

- Monitoring a VLAN
- Monitoring a Stand Alone Room
- Monitoring Crestron
- Monitoring Crestron Fusion
- Monitoring Cisco
- Monitoring Polycom
- Monitoring AMX

The hosting portal is the end point where the agents communicate their monitoring results. It is usually accessed via DNS name lookup for public facing systems and by permanent ip address or internal dns internal name lookup for private systems. All of the configuration and ticket management functions are included here.
Dash Board Consolidates Access For:
- Customer Centric View
- Ticket Centric View
Engineering is the core configuration system. It is used to manage all aspects of monitoring.
Managing Time Periods
Time periods are used to indicate to the Agent when notices are to be emitted.
Managing Contact Groups
Contact groups are used when the Agent is using email as the notice mechanism.
Managing Host Groups
Host Groups provide device type grouping. It is used to apply monitoring defaults to groups of assets when needed.
Rooms provide location information for ticket processing.
Managing Makes and Models
Makes and Models are used to define device family groupings
Managing Onsite Providers
Onsite Providers establish PIN number access to the Service Console for field technicians and Plug-In for Customer Access.
Assets are the basis for monitoring.
Powerful tool to be used as the first line of problem determination.
Reboot customer equipment plugged into a SNMP capable power unit.
Managing Messaging to Outside Service
Managing Email Configurations
Email configuration provides access to back end server configuration parameters.
Managing Agent HTTPS Proxies
Special considerations for setting up proxies in the customer network.
Managing Agent DNS Reservations
How to use Customer DNS System to Monitor By DNS Name.
MPLS Ready Kernels
MPLS (Multi Protocol Label Switching) is an emerging standard for telecommunications. It directs data from from one network node to the next based on short path labels rather than long network address. This avoids comples lookups in a routing table. MPSL can encapsulate packets of network protocols.
It is used to eliminate DDOS Attacks. The AVNOC Software Agent employs a MPLS kernel in case it is expected to act as a node in a MPLS network.
