Inventory Explorer, Mapping, Monitoring and Alert&Ticketing
The default display grid is shown below, each grid has a default set of columns, but extra columns can be added or columns removed. The grids are fully dynamic and generated at the client side, so support column resizing, drag bigger or smaller, and consistent capabilities such as Export, Print, Search/Filter plus Column Chooser.
In Codima Toolbox user created Custom Fields are treated exactly the same as regular fields, and are used in Filters, Analytics and Summary features with no restrictions unlike other solutions. Custom fields are used to add user metrics like Power Rail Connection as in the example.
There is an extensive set of standard views available selected by a single click.

This picture shows drill down options from the Map to Inventory (including an ability to update ITIL on the drilled device ) and other Licensed features as below with a Monitoring, Alerts and Ticketing plus Software Security License as available drill options, even a Web Full function SNMP browser.
With the correct license, Maps can be viewed on remote probes in a Codima Toolbox Dashboard with live updates and full edit and display control. Traffic is animated with the Codima Toolbox Monitoring License including from remote probes.
Visio Maps use the Microsoft Standard documentation package Visio. It is used by many organisations as a standard presentation format. Visio is a very flexible drawing package and well suited to documenting simple or complex network topologies.
Visio Maps can be viewed from the Codima Toolbox web system by using the Codima Toolbox Visio download facility. The user will have full Visio editing capabilities if a copy of Visio is installed. Otherwise the free Visio Viewer can be installed to draw the Visio style picture, editing is not allowed.
Visio is a Windows rather than a Web Product and is an industry standard documentation tool, below are some Visio Maps produced after a Codima Toolbox Network Discovery.
Monitoring is fully automatic using standard rules, literally Network Discovery directly sets up the Monitoring, with zero user setup, and just gets on with monitoring. The monitoring can also be tuned based on user created sophisticated rules and fine grain device target matchers, or simply set on/off per device. Multiple thresholds and escalating alert levels can be set for any number of metrics. Results are displayed in HighSoft top in class dynamic graphs.

Alerts and Ticketing is a from the ground up, Integrated system (not a bolted on package with a different GUI). It pulls together Alerts from Codima Toolbox Monitoring and External Alerts such as Syslog, and then Classifies and Presents them throughout the system including in Codima Toolbox Live Maps (including Probes).
Tickets can be generated Automatically or added Manually and sent to general or specialised Teams. The system automatically Tracks and chases up Tickets by talking to engineer and supervisor pools, using an elegant but world class setup. A diagram illustrates Polling operation:
Alerts are logged and processed by Codima Toolbox. Sources include Codima Toolbox Generated Monitoring Alerts such as CPU Loading too high, Ping Response time too long, Disk access slow. Additionally, External Alerts from network gear like Switches, Routers and firewalls are all processed be they from Syslog or SNMP Traps.
Ticketing runs in real time and checks incoming Alerts to see if a new Ticket needs to be Generated. Existing tickets are tracked for timeout violations causing a Supervisor Message to be generated. This simple GUI below condenses a complex GUI in other products, into a single setup box in Codima Toolbox without loss of functionality.
