Proactive Networking

The Switch 5300xl Series have built-in management capabilities that
proactively help you manage your network including:
finding and helping you fix the most common network error conditions
(for example, faulty network cabling, and non-standard network
topologies)
informing you of the problem with clear, easy-to-understand messages
recommending network configuration changes to enhance the
performance of your network
The following interfaces provide tests, indicators, and an event log that can
be used to monitor the switch and its network connections, and to help you
take advantage of these proactive networking features:
ProCurve Manager - an SNMP-based network management tool included
with your switch
A graphical web browser interface you can use to manage your switch
from a PC that is running a supported web browser, for example Microsoft
Internet Explorer or Netscape Communicator.
A full-featured easy-to-use console interface you can access by merely
connecting a standard terminal or PC running a terminal emulator to the
switch's console port. The cable to make that connection is provided with
your switch. The console interface is also accessible through a telnet
connection.
See the "Troubleshooting" chapter in the Management and Configuration
Guide that is on the ProCurve Web site, www.procurve.com, for more informa-
tion on using these software tools to diagnose and manage your switch.
