NetBrain DE can be used to run apps which accomplish a variety of network tasks including monitoring, troubleshooting, change verification, compliance and inventory management. Users can save apps and share them internally within their organization, fostering a culture of collaboration.
Writing Your Own Apps
NetBrain DE includes a software development kit (SDK) for writing your own network apps. The software’s visual programming environment includes built-in templates for writing a variety of apps. To start, define a CLI command as input. You can begin identifying the data you’d like the app to collect and analyze through sample CLI output. The visual nature of programming Qapps makes automation significantly easier to achieve vs. scripting.
NetBrain DE comes installed with over one hundred apps for analyzing routing, multicasting, QoS, inventory, and more. Below is a sample of apps that come pre-installed with NetBrain DE. You can run these apps after you download the software and discover devices in your network. More apps are available for download from Qapp Exchange.
