What does your network see?
Digital transformation initiatives are driving the network to perform in unprecedented ways. Hybrid IT is the new normal. LiveAction helps improve your control of the network to deliver a better experience.
Monitoring is best done pervasively unless you already know in advance where all the problems are going to be. LiveNX leverages instrumentation embedded within network devices to provide extensive visibility as all the flows go through the network, end-to-end.
- Anomaly Detection
- Historical (DVR) Playback
- Monitor of Monitors
- Path Analysis
- Real-Time Analysis
LiveNX alerts based on anomalous behavior using statistical methods and machine learning. Standard alerting uses set thresholds for voice, video, applications, bandwidth, etc. with user-directed levels. Advanced alerting uses a dynamic baseline that learns per metric over a period of time. Alerting can be combined with enterprise incident management platforms e.g. PagerDuty
LiveNX presents customizable summary dashboards views of the enterprise-wide environment with color-coded alerts to quickly identify the number of sites, devices and applications experiencing performance degradation.
Historical (DVR) Playback
LiveNX stores raw flow data for historic playback to support forensic analysis. The Historical Playback feature in the flow device-level view replays the historical flow data collected over the previous 24-hour period. This feature has access to all the flow data collected by LiveNX, and all the filtering options are available. Very valuable for root cause analysis and post-mortem reviews.
Monitor of Monitors
Monitor of Monitor provides LiveNX system visibility for system administrators and support teams. As a distributed LiveNX environment can become complicated, it is important to provide system-level understanding and insights. The Monitor of Monitor interconnects to the LiveNX Servers and aggregates system performance such as CPU, storage, RAM, etc., which are displayed in a set of summary dashboards with drill down per site and server.
Cisco Performance Routing (PfR) delivers intelligent path control for application-aware routing across the WAN. PfR provides dynamic selection of the best path for application-based business policies and application-based load balancing across paths for full utilization of bandwidth with improved network availability. LiveNX monitors PfRv3 performance on a per-flow basis, and applies what is learned to select the best path for that application.
LiveNX hop-by-hop application and flow path analysis provide a determination of the problem location. For easy troubleshooting, color-coded alerts indicate red on the topology map for service impacting status.
Within LiveNX, the accumulated real-time data is analyzed and represented in topology views, path maps, sites (eg. chord diagram, Sankey diagram), and graphs for proactive troubleshooting and remediation of the issue.
