Network Operations needs answers for diagnostics and service delivery monitoring to assure the service quality and end to end application experience for their organization and customers. To meet or exceed the service level agreements device discovery, proactive alerts and dynamic dashboards and reports to visualize the different data sets, are key to successfully managing a complex environment.
See how LiveNX 6.2 extends network visibility and service assurance.
Integrated QoS Control with LiveNX and Cisco EasyQoS
Report templates provide an easy way for LiveNX System users to access a group of report, or a single report without needing to search or build them. LiveNX 6.2 introduces a series of pre-defined report templates such as Voice Story or SD WAN. Favorite Applications is integrated with Cisco APIC-EM EasyQoS Reports providing a runtime view of the latest apps and their attributes such as jitter/loss, traffic class and business relevancy.
Extended Alerting for SD-WAN Site-to-Site Analysis
As customers continue to leverage LiveNX as a Day 2 operational platform, LiveNX 6.2 extends its industry leading SD-WAN monitoring and performance capabilities with network alerting:
- Interface percent utilization – Set a utilization threshold for an interface and alert whenever any interface in the set exceeds a certain percent utilization threshold (either inbound or outbound).
- BGP peer connection changes – Create an alert that will send an email anytime BGP peer drops on any router with a BGP peer table.
- IWAN/PfR path change alert – When a path change occurs it is treated as a potential issue in the network because this means that the current link the traffic was being sent over is no longer suitable or available to do so, and another link should be used instead.
- PagerDuty integration of published alerts – Alerts sent to email@
live-dev.pagerduty.com trigger the alerts based on the workflow and escalation policies in PagerDuty.
Rapid Device Discovery Through Auto-Semantic Discovery for Fast Deployment Times
The legacy way of inputting device name, IP address, interface type, etc. into LiveNX manually was time consuming and labor intensive. LiveNX 6.2 introduces new Auto-Semantics capabilities that associate devices to sites, link capacity, site IP mapping, service provider, etc. and auto populates LiveNX so you can be up and using the platform faster.
Easy Onboarding with Guided Navigation for New Users
To ease the process of configuring your newly installed LiveNX 6.2 software, a guided tutorial is now added to the main menu bar to get you up and running more efficiently.
Reduce Complexity With an Integrated Single Pane of Glass with a Monitor of Monitors (MoM)
IT is tasked with monitoring a diverse set of systems with a growing customer demand for always on availability at amazing performance. The complexity of these business needs from the technology infrastructure places stress on the IT organization to see into the vast number of devices, links, systems and applications. LiveNX 6.2 has expanded the ‘Monitor of Monitors’ (MoM) capability to aggregate overall status, system health, devices, sites and settings all within a single pane of glass.
Simplify Monitoring and Managing LiveNX for System Administrators
As large enterprise deployments and managed service provider environments increase in complexity, the system-level understanding of the LiveNX nodes and server environment is now simplified with administrative views into CPU, RAM, flow store free size, active devices on the node, etc. This helps the LiveNX system admin to plan for capacity and performance in Day 2 operations.
