FCMS – An SNMP based network monitor for uptime- and usage management with a focus on live updating network diagrams

FCMS software suite overview


What is FCMS?

FCMS is a suite of 6 applications. The letters FCMS stand for:  FineConnection Monitoring Software. The core applications are Quantellium the web-based monitoring daemon, and the 5 real-time GUI-based desktop applications FC_RTGraph, FC_RTPie, FC_RTTable, FC_RTMeter and FC_RTSet to support trouble-shooting and performance analysis. The configuration files for all core applications can be built with CCBuilder which also provides MIB browser and MIB compiler functionality.

CheckClear network topology diagrams – focusing on network visibility

Reliable and efficient network uptime- and performance monitoring, requires an accurate and detailed view of the network topology. Which device is where, what devices are interconnected and what is their actual status?

  • Quantellium makes it easy to build network topology maps by providing simple drawing tools and a central repository providing default classes, data collectors (sensors) and MIB information for the most frequently used devices.
  • On these maps, “live updating” indicators show  status and events per device.
  • Special “MapLink objects” make it possible to build layered map structures. Zooming in from Country to city, from city to building and from building to floor etc.

CheckIP scan / Auto discovery

The Quantellium IP scan / auto-discovery utility allows you to examine the network for IP and SNMP devices and map each new device discovered to a default Quantellium class. The resulting set of discovered devices is added automatically to a network map. IP scan uses ICMP pings to find devices and then SNMP requests to interrogate the devices to find out to what class of devices they belong.


CheckError control – reducing “false positive” alerts to the bare minimum!

Quantellium provides “Error control” (EC). This  powerful feature provides reliable alerting of incidents, supports multi-homing and redundant network paths!

Without EC (left image), 3 alerts are generated. 3 eMails or SMS messages are sent from which 66% is a “false positive”! With EC enabled (right image), only 1 eMail or SMS message is sent! No false positives anymore…

CheckCUC – Network performance at a glance!

Connection Utilization Coding (CUC), provides a continuous overview of the performance of the network and connected equipment.  It shows connection utilization on the network topology maps, by adjusting line-width and color coding, in real-time, 24×7!

CheckBuild-in Trap, Syslog and TFTP server with filtering options

  • Quantellium provides a build-in trap- and syslog server to parse, manage and view real-time trap and syslog messages.
  • You can create filters based on message type and source to only receive the most important messages and limit their number.
  • Messages can be followed up by script actions to take appropriate action or to warn staff.
  • TFTP is typically used for booting diskless devices or transferring files, for upgrading switch or router firmware or saving config/settings files. The FCMS TFTP server allows read- and write operations in one single folder or in separate folders.
