ProCurve Manager[edit]

ProCurve Manager' (PCM) is a comprehensive Network Management suite for products and solutions by ProCurve Networking, a division of HP.

ProCurve Manager comes in two versions; a base version supplied both free of charge with all managed ProCurve Products and also for download, and a "Plus" version that incorporates more advanced functionality and also enables plugin support. There is a 60-day trial version including all modules existing. Both, the base and the plus version derive from the trial version and need to be activated via Internet.

The Plus version can also be implemented in HP OpenView Network Node Manager for Windows. The software ProCurve Manager is to be used predominantly for ProCurve products.

Plugins[edit]
