Network Performance Monitoring and Analytics

Real-time network performance monitoring, analytics, and reporting for visibility, trouble-shooting and enhanced forensic analysis of packets and flows across the entire network

Monitor at the Speed of the Network

Network performance monitoring and analytics can often require expensive and difficult to deploy tap and probe hardware. Existing solutions to extract business value from an entire existing network in the data center, campus or branch have historically been difficult to deploy.

The Pluribus Insight Analytics network performance dashboard eliminates the economic and operational barrier associated with traditional network performance monitoring infrastructure (based on packet brokers and expensive tools) and brings flows and packet analytics to broader enterprise networking deployments ranging from campus to data center.

Pluribus Insight Analytics is also fully interoperable with third-party networks. This compatibility allows customers to extract more visibility from the network, to spot security concerns and to drastically reduce the time spent in war rooms to solve IT trouble tickets.

Network Performance Dashboard

Network performance monitoring has always been an expensive and complex process since network traffic starts with the transfer of vast numbers of raw packets of information, which are cryptic in nature. Insight Analytics is a network performance dashboard with the industry’s first highly intuitive, big data approach to network performance analytics that solves three basic shortcomings with traditional analytics tools:

  • Interactive speed becomes critical when considering millions or billions of business flows. Users need the ability to navigate quickly and without lag, perform what-if inquiries, and let the data itself determine the analysis process
  • Application-aware, business transactions. This eliminates the need to try and align dozens or hundreds of raw packets with their business value. Both packets and flows of information associated with specific business applications are available
  • The cost has always been a limiting factor and as such monitoring has been deployed only in a tiny percentage of where performance information would be useful. Comprehensive monitoring should not be a luxury, but a common practice everywhere.

Insight Analytics is an easy-to-use, drill-down network performance dashboard intended to allow the user to visualize key application flow and packet metrics, with extensive filtering, trending and correlation capabilities
