NLINK® Modules enhance the basic capability of the NLINK Server by providing optional core capabilities that more demanding deployments may require. By separating this advanced functionality from the core product, NLINK customers are provided with a cost-effective integration solution that can be upgraded at will – as and when needed.
NLINK ALERT MODULE
The NLINK Alert Module provides e-mail or pager alerts and notifications from NLINK to business analysts and IT support staff using the Simple Mail Transport Protocol (SMTP). In addition, support staff can also subscribe to an RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feed of NLINK Information, Warning and/or Error messages. With the NLINK Alert Module, NLINK can proactively notify your staff of any error or potential error condition, keeping your systems running smoothly by keeping systems outages to an absolute minimum.
NLINK AUTO-DOCUMENTATION MODULE
The NLINK Auto-Doc Module (NADM) automatically generates flowchart-style drawings that represent the configuration of an NLINK integration project. Since these drawings are created from the NLINK configuration itself, they are always accurate and complete. The drawings are interactive, allowing the user to control how much detail is shown and which aspects of the configuration are exposed or hidden.
NLINK CLUSTER MODULE
The NLINK Cluster Module is an optional component that allows multiple NLINK Servers to be connected together, making them appear to network clients as a single, highly available system. This allows multiple NLINK Servers to run more efficiently by directing client requests based on resource availability and NLINK Server load. If one of the nodes in the cluster is unavailable, or has failed due to hardware or software problems, other nodes in the cluster automatically handle its workload until the failed system is brought back online. The NLINK Cluster Module provides a very good high-availability solution using standard, inexpensive hardware, while maximizing computing resources.
NLINK CONFIGURATION MODULE
The NLINK Configuration Module (NCM) is an intuitive graphical user interface used by business users to configure the NLINK Server. The NCM makes complex integration projects quick to implement and easy to change. No programming or networking skills are necessary and the configuration process becomes a logical, repeatable and self-documenting process through the NCM.
NLINK MANAGEMENT MODULE
The NLINK Management Module (NMM) provides the out-of-the-box ability to monitor, manage and troubleshoot the NLINK Server both locally and remotely across a network. With the NLINK Management Module administrators can quickly observe the state of NLINK installations, monitor system event log messages and view or record detailed system statistics. The NLINK Management Module also provides the ability to easily reset NLINK CoNNectors or update operational settings of the NLINK Server as it runs, without the need to restart the service.
