Yamaha LAN Monitor
Port Status and Bandwidth Utilization
The Yamaha Audio Network Monitor includes a port status and bandwidth display that clearly shows the connection status of each network switch port, information about the connected devices, the communication speed at each port, and the bandwidth utilization at each port.
1-click Dante Controller Launch
A Dante Controller button at the top of the Yamaha Audio Network Monitor interface lets you launch the Dante Controller with a single click (the Dante Controller software must be installed on the computer). Seamless switching between the Yamaha Audio Network Monitor and Dante Controller provides total Dante network control from a single computer.
Snapshot Function Makes Troubleshooting Easy
You can take a “snapshot” of the network status when set up as required. The software can then automatically keep track of the settings and alert you to any changes. You could take a snapshot of the network during rehearsal, and then you’d be alerted if a cable is disconnected, if a device is turned off, or if a wrong connection is made prior to the performance, for example.
Enhanced Device ID with Icons, Labels, and Comments
Identifying devices connected to a switch by only their IP or MAC address is a difficult and error-prone approach. Connected Dante devices are identified by a Dante icon as well as a device ID previously set up via the Dante Controller software. You can also enter additional info, such as the location of the device, in the Label and Comment fields.
Detailed Switch Settings and Firmware Updates
The web GUI for each device can be recalled to provide access to “deep” settings and allow firmware updates.
Collectively monitor and remotely restart devices distributed over a wide area
If the monitoring device does not respond to a Ping, it judges that a fault has occurred and automatically stops the PoE power supply to that device and then resumes it. This restarts the monitoring equipment and attempts recovery. By collectively managing the status of the devices distributed over a wide area, it can ensure that equipment management can operate far more smoothly.
