SpectroSERVER
The SpectroSERVER is the primary server for 
DX NetOps Spectrum
. The SpectroSERVER functions as a database server, a modeling engine, and a device manager. The SpectroSERVER processes events, generates alarms, and tracks statistics for managed elements. The client applications get this information through the SpectroSERVER application programming interface (SSAPI) and the 
DX NetOps Spectrum
 CORBA interface.
The following illustration shows the SpectroSERVER components in a simplified view:
