Eliminate blind spots in your virtual infrastructure

Using LiveWire Virtual with the LiveNX performance monitoring platform, IT teams can now access the same in-depth level of analytics across their virtual infrastructure as they have for physical networks.

Identify Application Issues using Flow Data

Quickly Identify Application Issues using Flow Data

LiveFlow converts packet data into rich flow-based data using IPFIX and automatically exports this data into LiveNX. LiveNX then makes it easy to quickly identify and resolve application issues, such as VoIP and video performance problems, without the need for deep forensic analysis.

Easily Transition from Flow Analysis to Forensic-Level Analysis

Within the LiveNX platform, you can quickly transition from flow analysis to deep forensic analysis using our renowned web-based Omnipeek protocol analysis software.

Custom IPFIX Fields

Improve Deep Packet Inspection with Custom IPFIX Fields

LiveFlow enables custom fields, such as “phone numbers” or “window size,” for enhanced deep packet inspection.

Ensure Minimal Impact on Production Traffic Performance

By using a network tap or bridge to mirror traffic, LiveWire products monitor packet data without impacting the performance of production network traffic
