Introduction

Moxa’s MXview network management software is designed for configuring, monitoring, and diagnosing networking devices in industrial networks. MXview provides an integrated management platform that can discover networking devices and SNMP/IP devices installed in subnets. All selected network components can be managed graphically via web browser from both local and remote sites—anytime and anywhere.

Features and Benefits

  • Event Playback records network events and replays past network incidents.
  • Discovers and visualizes network devices and physical connections
  • Automatically provides central management of configurations and firmware for Moxa devices
  • Flexible events and notifications with self-defined threshold and duration
  • Supports third-party devices with MIB compiler and MIB browser
  • Provides comprehensive reports, including inventory, traffic, and availability reports
  • Generates OPC 2.0 compliant tags automatically to integrate with SCADA/HMI applications
  • Provides a virtual demonstration network that lets you experience the software without connecting any devices

Visualization

  • Discovers up to 2,000 Moxa devices and SNMP/ICMP devices within scan range
  • Visualizes redundant link status and device roles of network redundancy protocols
  • Graphic VLAN groups and IGMP snooping roles visualization (image)
  • Visualization of network traffic loading with color-coded links (image)
  • Device front panel visualization, including ports and LED indicators (image)
  • Visualizes managed PoE device power consumption (image)
  • Displays third-party device icon

Network Diagnostics and Event Notification

  • Detect problems in real-time with SNMP trap/inform, or periodic polling
  • Generate trend graphs to track bandwidth utilization and error packet rate statistics, accurate to four decimal points(image)
  • Event Playback records network events, and replays past network incidents (image)
  • Flexible events and notifications with self-defined threshold and duration
  • Supports Syslog server for centralized message management
  • Configurable event notification alarms sent through SMS and email, or locally through program notifications and audio alerts
  • Generates OPC 2.0 compliant tags automatically to integrate with SCADA/HMI applications
  • Group health OPC tag represents entire network statusReal-time device availability monitoring
