EXPRESSSCOPE Engine's centralized management of multiple servers center on 3 key capabilities.
With EXPRESSSCOPE Engine administrators can stay engaged and check the ongoing status of servers without being on premise. Should a
failure occur the event and error event logs collected by EXPRESSSCOPE Engine are made available for remote analysis and diagnosis through
an Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) system.
Such accessibility enables:
Offsite administrators have real-time availability to all related visual elements available locally.
On the remote management console, LED indicator graphics light and blink the same as an actual server and the server's virtual LCD monitor
normally viewed through the local console provides easy-to-understand details of server conditions.
When the NEC server's management LAN port is connected to the network, server status becomes web browser and command line
interface accessible. Because monitoring is mediated by EXPRESSSCOPE Engine information collection does not depend on the operating system,
making NEC servers suitable for datacenter environments with a mix of operating systems.
EXPRESSSCOPE Engine helps to protect NEC servers through user authentication to limit access to the remote management
Login attempts to the network are logged to reduce the risk of security breach by outsiders.
Event logs collected are provided on the remote management console. The system event log screen displays diagnostic messages
as well as the meaning of each log in reference with the fault dictionary.
Administrators are alerted to abnormalities in a server through e-mail or Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) reports.
From a remote management console, reporting policies can be individually defined for each monitored attribute to suit the criticality level
of a system.
Tailored report settings not only enable prompt remedial action in response to failures, but also help preemptively detect or prevent
failures before they occur.
