Users and Administrators usually prefer to access management units differently. A number of them would rather use their PDA devices, while others choose ASCII command lines. Still, some administrator’s fancy web based command interfaces in their approach to out of band management applications. Since different users access the server management system frequently, it is necessary to allow them admission, using whatever platform or capacity they prefer. Consequently, the perfect console management system should preferably have these three control interfaces working in tandem.
When shopping for server management products, experts recommend systems that include the command line interface (CLI), Web based interface and PDA compliant interface. This enables all system users and administrators to have full time access to the system with ease and convenience. Therefore, anyone can detect arising issues and trouble shoot errors promptly. This in turn leads to better performance and enhancement in the performance of servers.
Command line interface (CLI) is quite easy to use for individuals with basic, to advanced skills in Graphics Design software. You can perform different functions using easy to remember commands and prompts. Using this interface, expert programmers can access unit parameters, display status, manage user’s accounts, set access privileges, retrieve data from port buffers, create or terminate serial port connections among other commands. Without a doubt, any console management system with such capabilities is highly recommended for large-scale operations.
PDA interface connection is ideal for remote access to the main system. However, you do not get permission to configure menus, alter port connection settings or retrieve data using this method. The number of functions available remotely is partly limited, compared to other interfaces. In fact, this console management interface is mostly suitable for remote monitoring of the unit’s status, and viewing port status display functions. You can randomly check in from whatever location and ensure that everything is running accordingly. Conversely, web based interface offers more functions than its remote access cousin does. You can configure parameters, display unit status, manage user accounts, set access privileges and a host of other functions, similar to the command line interface. All this is possible through a user-friendly format and menu. The only restriction is that you cannot retrieve buffered data from serial ports or end serial port connections.
Nowadays, console management systems are available with ingenious features for users. They include alarm functions and configuration mechanisms, which permit integration with any form of band management applications imaginable. Console Units are usually set up in isolated network equipment sites. Network Administrators can monitor their operations, pinpoint errors and resolve them, before serious breakdowns are experienced. This preemptive action takes place remotely without necessarily having to travel to the actual sites. This is a convenient and cost cutting measure for web hosting and networking companies and organizations.
