Thanks your information. It seems that Netcool has been part of Cisco product line
called CIC -Cisco Info Center.

We had a look at some of these tools and found that there
was a large selection of not so good tools - in the end
we have gone for Netcool [] which has
some good capabilities for the measurement but very
poor capabilities for presenting this information to
third parties, such as customers.
