VIAVI network performance monitoring and diagnostics (NPMD) tools offer the ability to mine network data and apply deep packet analysis to optimize IT resources in real time or post-event.
Monitor Network Performance to Gain Valuable Insight
With emerging technologies such as unified communications, hybrid cloud, network security forensics, and virtualization paired with the rapid rate of change, network managers and network engineers need end-to-end insight and complete network visibility from the physical infrastructure and storage to the network and newest applications.
VIAVI enterprise network performance monitoring tools provide comprehensive insight into network, storage, applications, and infrastructure. This powerful toolset features fast capture rates and over a petabyte of storage capacity for retrospective network analysis. Real-time and historical summary dashboards, traffic-flow analytics, utilization metrics, and a snapshot of your delivery system all help ensure that your network's performance is fully optimized.
Maintain Peak Network Performance Monitoring of all IT Services
Comprehensive network performance monitoring tools are ideal for maintaining peak performance of all IT services. Learn how the VIAVI network performance monitoring solution delivers critical KPIs through pre-defined workflows from high-level dashboards to service anomaly root cause for the following IT services:
What is Network Performance Monitoring and Diagnostics?
A network performance monitoring and diagnostics or NPMD solution measures, quantifies, and reports on relevant metrics related to the IT resources. It is used by an organization for the purposes of troubleshooting network issues and anomalies, while optimizing overall service delivery. This includes applications and services along with the network itself and anything connected to it, such as routers, switches, servers, clients, and storage appliances.
Next-Generation Network Performance Management
In today’s emerging hybrid IT environment, awareness of assets hosted in the cloud is also important, as is the ability to monitor technologies like SDN. Given the highly geographically distributed nature of today’s underlying supporting hybrid IT resources, the complexity of the applications, and the rapidly changing technology landscape, the challenge for a network performance monitoring and diagnostics solution is to provide a comprehensive view into overall service delivery and health for all levels of the organization.
How Can Network Performance Monitoring Aid in Post-Event Analysis?
Network performance monitoring allows network administrators and network engineers to quickly browse backward through massive amounts of network traffic post-event. An event could include end-user experience issues, a security breach, or anything that impacts network performance. With network performance monitoring, network engineers and administrators can view breaches and anomalies exactly as they happened, within the context of other activity as it occurred on the network.
Faster Troubleshooting with Post-Event Analysis
With network performance monitoring, it is possible to sidestep the complicated task of trying to recreate problems in order to troubleshoot them. To do this, all network traffic (or some targeted subset) must be efficiently captured and stored, in much the same way a convenience store might use a video security system, to ensure optimal network performance and visibility.
