CiscoWorks LMS 3.1 utilizes security information maintained in Cisco Secure Access Control Server (ACS) to simplify the management of user privileges. Cisco Secure ACS integration provides flexibility in defining user roles and supports secured user views of specific devices or groups of devices or by geographic or logical network segments. Significant improvement in performance, such as multithreading background tasks, has reduced the time needed to deliver updates to the network, as well as generate reports. Efficient task processing and its shared database of managed devices allow CiscoWorks LMS to be deployed into larger networks.
CiscoWorks LMS consists of operationally focused tools capable of fault management, scalable topology views, sophisticated configuration, Layer 2 and 3 path analysis, voice-supported path trace, WAN performance troubleshooting, end-station tracking, and device troubleshooting. CiscoWorks LMS is built on the CiscoWorks Common Services management infrastructure and foundation. This design facilitates operations workflow between applications by linking data collection, monitoring, and analysis tools-all from a single desktop application. For example, a user complaint of slow response time or a poor IP phone connection can be quickly diagnosed using CiscoWorks LMS Layer 2 path tools that automatically acquire user-path information stored in one database and highlight devices on a topology map. Additionally, switch or router configurations can then be quickly examined to detect anomalies or the need for changes. Those actions may draw information from one or more applications.
CiscoWorks LMS uses Internet standards to tie together best-in-class tools and to take advantage of their capabilities through data- and task-integration standards. Using the Common Information Model (CIM) and Extensible Markup Language (XML), which are industry standards for data sharing, allows CiscoWorks LMS a means of extracting data and using it with popular network management products.
