Network Dashboard

Network Performance Dashboards

Network performance dashboards are vital to network monitoring tools for providing network monitoring across your entire network. Dashboards are the centerpieces to identify network issues quickly or even before they happen. The LiveAction network monitoring software rolls information up to a single view for all data types, such as flow, packet, and SNMP.

Network Performance Analytics

An important component of network monitoring tools is performance analytics. These analytics include a visual representation of network data in the form of graphs and charts, providing the insights Network Operations needs to isolate and resolve network issues fast.

Network Performance Analytics
Network Performance Reporting

Network Performance Reporting

Networks monitoring tools are not complete without network monitoring reports and the LiveAction platform incorporates these within a single solution. Network monitoring reports can be either real-time or historic. These reports allow you to go from days manually pulling reports together to just a few clicks, saving time. Network monitoring reports vary from capacity planning reports to operational reports, and executive dashboards.

NetFlow Analyzer

An essential component of network monitoring tools is a NetFlow analyzer, or more generically speaking, flow data analyzer. The LiveAction platform supports a wide range of flow data, such as NetFlow, J-Flow, sFlow, and IPFIX, and support flow from every major network provider, including Cisco, Aruba, and Juniper, to name a few.

Packet Analyzer

Packet Analyzer

While mentioned last in the discussion on network monitoring tools, it certainly is not the least in terms of importance. An integrated packet analyzer is used to capture and analyze packet data from anywhere within the network (NOCs, branches, data centers and more) and surface this data in a single user interface (UI).
