Is there a user guide for netsight Alarms Manager. I'm trying to create a trap that will alert me when a device has connected to our network and record and email the MAC Address and IP Address.

Does extreme have any video training courses on Netsight. My environment has a mixture of enterass and extreme OS. I need to see if Netsight has the same capability of Solar winds. Trying to find out which network device is using a large amount of bandwidth, find latency on the network and know when a configuration change has been made on a switch.
