Today’s networks are becoming faster and faster to accommodate the increasing demands of service and application growth, making network and application performance monitoring and troubleshooting essential, yet very challenging. Not only are organizations struggling to keep pace, but they are finding that visibility into the traffic traversing the networks is steadily decreasing.
To address this lack of visibility, organizations must implement network monitoring and analysis solutions with detailed troubleshooting that are compatible with high-speed networks. Oftentimes, the statistical data used to compile monitoring dashboards and reports common in today’s flow-based monitoring solutions are insufficient for performing detailed root cause analysis, driving network engineers to use multiple products from multiple vendors to perform different levels of analysis. This significantly increases the cost for IT departments to do business, in a time when budgets are already razor thin.
However, organizations can meet this challenge by implementing tools that scale to 10G+ networks and are built with more powerful analytical platforms capable of handling the massive increases in transactions and data traversing the network. In addition, these tools must be able to provide real-time feedback on overall network performance, so the data is always available for detailed, packet-based analysis.
WildPackets’ Omnipliance family of network analysis and recording devices includes each of these features, and can provide the necessary visibility on all network segments at 10G, 40G and even 100G. Join us on Wednesday, April 16, 2014 at 8:30am PT for a webinar that will discuss how to increase visibility into higher-speed networks. Register here.
