Network Management

Network Management is used to monitor the local campus network and its associated services. This is done by using such key tools as network monitoring, traffic analysis, service monitoring, and a configuration archive for network electronics.

What is Network Management?

The local server will be operated by Uninett. In addition, company ICT personnel will be given a web interface that provides access to the various tools. The service for local network surveillance currently contains the following tools:

  • Software for surveillance – NAV (Network Administration Visualized)
  • Netflow portfolio (NfSen / nfdump)
  • Service monitoring with Xymon (alternatively NAV)
  • Configuration archive for network electronics (based on tftp)
  • Syslog server
  • Authentication service for network electronics
  • Solution for the administration of access lists (Firewall Builder)

NAV is the service’s most important tool; it is described in more detail here.

Who is Network Management for?

This service is available to everyone who uses Uninett as their Internet service provider. Your company needs to be connected to the research network.


The service is monitored 24/7 by Uninett Servicesenter


This service requires a local server to be installed, which must be placed in a secure and well-protected network segment. Subsequently, Uninett must be given adequate access, so that the server can be monitored and operated from Uninett Service Center.
