Tivoli Netcool Performance Manager

I have not used this monitoring tool since 2015, the core functionality remains the same. It is extremely good at polling devices using SNMP efficiently, aggregating and computing statistics. Its downfall has always been the front end. Think of this as what NAGIOS wants to grow up to be like. Configured well, it is light weight and will not stress network elements unlike Info Vista which is inefficient at collection and will run network elements into the ground trying to pull KPI/KQI/Statistics/Monitoring.
