Aprisma's Spectrum 7.0 and Spectrum OneClick
Because It's There
I installed Spectrum at our Syracuse University Real-World Labs and ran a couple of discoveries to populate our network topology from within SpectroGraph. I limited discovery to a few hundred devices, collecting a few subnets on the way, which gave me a good cross section of switches and routers from Cisco Systems, Extreme Networks, Juniper Networks, Nortel and 3Com. Discovery took less time than it takes to get a cup of coffee, reinforcing my opinion that Spectrum is the best application for automated discovery.
The personalized start page typifies OneClick's low-clutter look. Users can customize their start pages, defining which graphs and reports to show. The split screen is both intuitive and contextual, with right-hand navigation and left-hand details.
When OneClick is launched, Java JRE 1.4.2 is installed. You can have executables placed on your local hard drive for speedier subsequent loads. Speaking of speed, don't worry if you've had a doggy Java experience in the past: OneClick does not drag. Lists and icons loaded quickly in my tests. Subsequent loads of OneClick instigate a check for code updates.
