Your network supports a wide range of end-user services and revenue-generating transactions, which is why you must keep network performance at the maximum and downtime to a minimum.

The HP Performance Smart Plug-in (iSPI) and other iSPIs for HP Network Node Manager add powerful reporting capabilities to NNMi and NNMi Advanced. They enhance NNMi and add awareness of specialized network environments, providing your team with the information it needs to anticipate and more quickly find and fix problems.

NNM iSPI Performance for Metrics contains a component called the Network Performance Server (NPS). This component is used by other iSPIs as well. The NPS provides both out-of-the-box and highly customizable reporting across any iSPI domain. The iSPI Performance for Metrics in particular focuses on fundamental network interface (SNMP MIB-II) and device component performance variables. It continuously collects, stores, and manages performance-related metrics from across your network and includes multiple pre-built reports for exploring that data. The highly scalable architecture of the NPS foundation handles up to 400,000 performance polled interfaces on a single server, storing the data for up to 70 days at the most granular level.

Tight integration between the NNMi operator console and the reporting interface provides operators with seamless transitions from fault data to performance reports and back. For example-select a node in NNMi and launch directly to the historical performance of all its interfaces, ordered by the metric of your choice and grouped in the way you prefer. See something interesting on one interface? Drill down for more detail or launch the NNMi configuration screen for that interface directly from the report.

The NPS reports allow you to easily and intuitively adjust the granularity, time range, topology filtering, and displayed metric of any report for the iSPI Performance for Metrics or any other iSPI reports. It will also carry these selections from report to report, and when appropriate, across reporting domains. You can choose to filter reports to only show activity during business hours on week days, or group data by important node groups.

When you've set the time range and topology filters to your own preferred configuration, NPS allows you to schedule the iSPI reports as defined for automatic generation and delivery-you can have your favorite reports delivered by e-mail and waiting in your in box every morning, or saved to disk for long-term archiving.

With the extensible architecture of the iSPI reporting mechanism and NNMi, you can build your own custom reporting solutions at the click of a mouse. Poll performance values from any SNMP MIB, and have fully integrated historical reports automatically generated.

Address your operational performance reporting needs with the iSPI Performance for Metrics and other iSPIs, and address your long term and data-warehousing needs with HP Performance Insight. Not only do the iSPI reports integrate tightly into the NNMi console, but they can pass collected data on to HP Performance Insight, avoiding the wasted bandwidth and CPU cycles of double polling. Install the Performance Insight data pipe and have NNMi and the iSPI Performance for Metrics act as an SNMP collector, passing on data to the Performance Insight Interface Reporting and Device Resources report packs.

Using the NNMi real-time path view as a launch point, the iSPI Performance for Metrics also provides the option for a path health report. This provides an instantaneous performance snapshot at every point along a network path, allowing you to immediately pinpoint recurring, difficult-to-track issues within a dynamic network environment.

Product Reviews
HPE OpenView Network Node Manager iSPI Performance for Metrics - license is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from It has a limit on the number of systems that can be managed but it is proactive in heading off failures. Valuable Features:The intelligent agents which allows for detailed instruction sets to be deployed to systems.Improvements to My Organization:It is proactive in heading off failures that would be catastrophic to the business.Room for Improvement:Any product can be improved, regular "enhancement requests" are a part of the way the product is improved.Use of Solution:I've used it since it was released by HP. I first installed it in 2003-4 to do a gap analysis between 4 products.Deployment Issues:Some, but all are workable.Stability Issues:Mostly with the WMI and the SQL database (Microsoft issues).Scalability Issues:It has a limit, like any product, on the numbers of systems that can be managed.Customer Service:Average, but a lot depends on the level of support agreement and the responses of the sales representative who sold the product.Technical Support:Average, as HP has many methods of disseminating technical information. Again, it all depends on the level of support agreement a customer has; Regular or Premium, and some companies offer additional support matrices.Previous Solutions:I have used a number including shell scripts to monitor things. Most companies want something "out of the box" instead of unsupported products.Initial Setup:They have decent documentation on the process.Implementation Team:All of the above at some point in my career.ROI:If a system or application goes down, and any lag time occurs, depending on how much income is generated or lost as a result, along with proactively monitoring various aspects of an environment the return on the cost is minimal.Cost and Licensing Advice:Depends on how detailed you develop it and how many systems it is deployed on. I have seen A-Z. Small environments with a few systems and policies takes less, larger ones, more. The product does take considerable care and feeding especially in the later case.Other Solutions Considered:Generally, I am handed a deployment as a consultant, many times it has been as a result of a company wanting more from a monitoring solution. I have seen it replace many others, but, on the other hand, I have seen it replaced. It generally boils down to a number of factors starting with cost funneling down to the technical expertise of those who deploy and maintain OMW, NNM or OMU/L. Cheaper and easier though do not equate to better in my experience.Other Advice:Have someone who is skilled and who has experience implement and maintain it. It generally takes two to three years to become proficient with all the nuances of the product line, just being a good technician and taking all the prescribed classes are not qualifications for installing and maintaining the product. I have watched scores of those who did that wash out.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It consumes too many servers for installation but the ​Network Node Manager is good. Valuable Features:Network Node Manager is good and so is Operations Manager, although they are a bit archaic now. Also valuable are the RTSM Agent, agent-less monitoring, SPI, and integrations.Room for Improvement:Lots. Consumes too many servers for installation. Why separate products for agent/agentless, licensing simplification.Use of Solution:I've used it for eight years.Deployment Issues:BSM /OMi is not stable.Stability Issues:Yes. BSM/OMi is not stable. It takes time for event dashboard to refresh.Scalability Issues:It needs a lot of CPU/memory anyway.Implementation Team:We are MSP.Other Solutions Considered:We also looked at BMC.Other Advice:Too many products, so be careful what you want to implement.Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:We have a Strategic Partnership with HP.
