Visibility

Know your network. Gain deep understanding.

Visibility Solution

As networks get faster, workflows get slower. Extracting the relevant data from today’s high-speed networks to quickly troubleshoot performance issues is critical to maintaining end-user productivity. The challenge is to go from a broad view of your network to a pinpoint view of any traffic anywhere in mere seconds, and then drill into the relevant packets to resolve issues, greatly shortening the MTTR.

Our solutions provide network professionals with a more accurate and complete view of the network and ensure that trouble-spots can be identified and rectified before the business is adversely affected.

PROBLEMS

As your company grows and your work becomes more distributed, your corporate network can easily extend to hundreds or even thousands of remote locations. This creates unique challenges, including keeping it secure and running at peak performance with minimal downtime. You need a single, integrated solution that addresses both local and remote monitoring and troubleshooting to keep IT costs down and enterprise productivity up.

Remote Locations

SOLUTION

Smaller networks require the same kind of enterprise-caliber visibility that you expect in your data center, and LiveAction’s Insight delivers just that. With Insight you can monitor your remote networks from virtually anywhere, even your smartphone. And when necessary, packet level troubleshooting can be performed using the award winning Omnipeek protocol analyzer. Alerts can also be configured to send notifications when certain conditions are met, or thresholds are exceeded, freeing you up to perform other tasks while your remote networks are monitored 24×7.

PROBLEMS

Companies are increasingly relying on applications for business-critical tasks, making application performance a key issue. Network disruptions are now business disruptions, and the worst disruptions can sometimes have financial or even legal consequences. Network engineers tasked with keeping
this essential system of applications, networks, clients, and servers up and running at peak performance with minimal latency need to have the right tools and processes available to help them ensure the availability of these services.

Multi-Segment Analysis

SOLUTION

Multi-segment analysis is a valuable tool for accelerating the mean time to resolution of application-level issues. By automating the process of gathering network data from multiple network segments and/or multi-tiered applications, the troubleshooting process becomes much simpler; and when LiveAction products are used together for multi-segment analysis, a whole new level of network insight can be achieved.

PROBLEMS

Network utilization is one of, if not the key, metric that network engineers turn to first when investigating an issue. An oversubscribed network segment always leads to trouble. And even when utilization seems normal, microbursts hidden from normal, time-averaged monitoring systems could be denied some users of the connectivity they need.

Utilization

SOLUTION

LiveAction products provide real-time and post-event analysis at the granularity that network engineers need – the packets themselves – to quickly identify bandwidth hogs, peak bandwidth utilization times, the existence of hidden microbursts, and utilization benchmarks that can be used to determine if it’s time to increase network bandwidth.

PROBLEMS

Today’s networks are incredibly complex and impressively intertwined with applications, data storage, hypervisors, websites, firewalls, and a mobile ecosystem that grows daily.

Extracting insight from these environments requires expertise, ideally embedded in analysis tools and presented in a way made useful through contextual awareness, a focus on desired outcomes, and an awareness of the entire hierarchy from low-level network packet data to user actions. This information is needed in both real-time views as well as stored for ongoing historical analysis.

Ongoing Historical Analysis

SOLUTION

LiveActiom Omnipeek and Omnipliances enable network engineers to graph statistics and generate reports to create a baseline view of network activity. Creating baselines becomes easier with ELK, as the platform aggregates statistics from one or more Omnipliances over long periods of time, and can leverage cloud storage to amass terabytes of historical data. Users can create ELK dashboards to view custom collections of statistics and study fluctuations in these statistics over time. These dashboard views can be used to generate reports manually or automatically on a pre-ordained schedule..
