Auvik features at a glance

Follow

Auvik offers many features for managing and monitoring your network and associated devices. Auvik is preconfigured to monitor what’s important based on best practices, which means you don’t need to select or configure any MIBs (management information bases) or OIDs (object identifiers) for your devices.

Global navigation

There are three ways to navigate around Auvik:

  1. Map
  2. Side navigation bar
  3. Entity navigation bar

The map

The network map is a central and defining feature of Auvik. At a glance, it shows you how everything on your network is connected, both physically and logically. You can zoom in, expand nodes, and search or filter what’s displayed.

Entity features

Home dashboard

Each time you log into Auvik, you land on the home dashboard. The home dashboard provides an overview of your entire network. Any element of the dashboard can be clicked to access more detailed information.

Auvik defaults to showing you live data (from the last 10 minutes). To access historical data, click the calendar icon in the top right corner of the header bar and specify the timeframe you want to see. Once set, this will be used throughout the application until you change it again.

Services

Auvik comes pre-configured to monitor common services on all of your devices. You can edit or delete any of these pre-configured service monitors, as well as add your own custom service monitors.

Service monitoring is entity-specific. For example, we don’t monitor SSH on a Windows workstation, but we do monitor SSH on routers and switches.
