Novell Remote Manager (NRM) is a web-based interface to newer Novell NetWare servers. NRM saves server statistics in an XML file. Uptime Infrastructure Monitor collects performance metrics and availability information from NRM version 6.5 using HTTP or HTTPS by retrieving the XML file, parsing it and then storing the information in the DataStore. Graphs can be generated for a number of NRM metrics using the collected data.


Uptime Infrastructure Monitor can monitor Novell NetWare NRM version 6.5. Earlier versions of NRM are not supported.
