Console Server Management and Event Logging

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011

In applications that require management of remote network equipment sites, a good console server management unit needs to do more than merely provide secure out of band access to console port command functions on remote network elements. Often, a console server management unit must also serve as a means to allow network administrators to track events and conditions at remote sites, essentially providing the administrator with a way to examine temperature trends, power events and other important factors at equipment racks that are so remote, that the administrator cannot easily keep track of these conditions in person. In cases like this, a console server management ( unit that supports the ability to log events and environmental conditions can prove to be an extremely valuable asset.
