Clear and concise network visualization is often a gravely underappreciated feature of any network monitoring solution. Aesthetically pleasing presentations of data may be considered a luxury – more of a peripheral feature as opposed to one of the core elements of network monitoring software.
We can understand this way of thinking, especially if you have been used to working with monitoring tools with basic visualization capabilities. Our approach at OP5 to presenting complex data from numerous devices is simple and unapologetically direct.

So whilst we like that our visualizations are easy on the eye, we place more importance on communicating mass amounts of data in a logical and comprehensible structure, so when an area of concern or interest presents itself in our clients network they can resolve it as quickly as possible.
Every dashboard within OP5 Monitor is highly customizable, allowing you to map out your own network to reflect what is most important to you. Users can also create additional dashboards for a variety of different groups within their organizations, tailoring what is and isn’t relevant for each respective individual within these groups.

The dashboard below, is an example of how one of our clients has chosen to structure the network data that is crucial to them.
