The main tasks are:

  • Ensure the availability of the application 24/7 to the operators.
  • Maintain the topology of the network and the list of nodes monitored so that they always reflect the real state of the network.
  • Update the configuration of incidents (manage MIB files, traps, custom polling, correlation…) so that alarms displayed to the operators are accurate and leasable (no flooding)
  • Proactively follow up the changes implemented by the network team and update the monitoring accordingly
  • Follow up upgrades and patches released by the vendor and implement them regularly.
  • Upon issue within NNMi, contact the vendor’s support (MicroFocus) and implement the appropriate fix or workaround.
  • Provide 1st level support and knowledge transfer to the operators and the network team upon request.

The profile is a Network Engineer with several years of experience with the NNMi product. Ideally in a cluster environment. The knowledge of the application option “NNMi ISPI for metrics” is valuable. A good knowledge of SNMP is mandatory
