Network devices such as server, router, printer that operated in the company or an organization, should be monitored and managed well, to guarantee reliability, and availability of networks. The operational network devices are not only monitored in event of problems, but should be monitored periodically and reported centrally. In order to achieve the objective, we need a monitoring application to monitor the operation of network devices that usually termed as “Monitoring”. Not only by using monitoring application, but also the important thing is to show all the monitoring result on the dashboard. Periodically monitoring can be run by using monitoring application and centralize reporting can be visualized by using dashboard application. The result of real-time monitoring devices will be displayed as a graph or tables in a dashboard. In this research, the development both applications use the Object Oriented Concept and network protocol that called SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol), which is used for getting information of network device, hereinafter referred to as managed devices. Some devices information, produced by using SNMP are devices connectivity, service connectivity, and devices utility. The outcome of this research is the application of monitoring and dashboard application that are highly expected to help network administrator to identify network devices problems, so that problems can be solved with the right solution, and effectively.
