Read Data Sheet


Cisco IOS Embedded Event Manager (EEM) is a powerful and flexible subsystem that provides real-time network event detection and onboard automation. It gives you the ability to adapt the behavior of your network devices to align with your business needs.

Your business can benefit from the capabilities of IOS Embedded Event Manager without upgrading to a new version of Cisco IOS Software. It is available on a wide range of Cisco platforms.

IOS Embedded Event Manager supports more than 20 event detectors that are highly integrated with different Cisco IOS Software components to trigger actions in response to network events. Your business logic can be injected into network operations using IOS Embedded Event Manager policies. These policies are programmed using either simple command-line interface (CLi) or using a scripting language called Tool Command Language (Tcl).

Harnessing the significant intelligence within Cisco devices, IOS Embedded Event Manager helps enable creative solutions, including automated troubleshooting, fault detection, and device configuration.
