Novell Netware is a local-area network (LAN) operating system developed by Novell Corporation. NetWare is a software product that runs on a variety of different types of LANs, from Ethernets to IBM token-ring networks. It provides users and programmers with a consistent interface that is independent of the actual hardware used to transmit messages. To ensure peak performance of the Netware server, the health of the server should be continuously monitored. This is where eG Enterprise helps administrators.
