-====== ​What is NAV=====+====== ​Welcome to the NAV wiki! =====
-{{navlogo48.png |(NAV logo)}} **Network Administration Visualized** is an advanced software suite to monitor large computer networks. It automatically discovers network topology, monitors network load and outages, and can send alerts on network events by e-mail and SMS, allowing for flexible configuration of alert profiles.+
-Development of **NAV** started in 1999 at the [[|Norwegian University of Science and Technology]] (NTNU). It originated as a collection of scripts used internally at NTNU's ITEA Network group. In 2001 [[|UNINETT]] became interested ​in its development. In 2006 the development ​of NAV was moved from NTNU to UNINETT. NAV is used at nearly all universities and university colleges in Norway and [[navusers|many places elsewhere]]. +This Wiki contains information about the open source NMS Network Administration Visualized. For the latest official documentation,​ please see . Some of the older documentation may still be in the process ​of being moved from the Wiki to the official documentation.
