Cisco IP SLA Support
Network Operations teams need to continuously ensure that the network is capable of supporting key business applications. This includes being able to verify service guarantees, increase network reliability by validating network performance, and proactively identify network issues. Cisco IP SLAs uses active monitoring to generate traffic in a continuous, reliable, and predictable manner, enabling the measurement of network performance and health. Leveraging this technology within a network performance management system allows the operations team to utilize the network to verify performance when access to end-user response data is not available.

When monitoring the performance of applications and networks, the more insight you have into the actual traffic, the better. Integrated Metric and NetFlow analysis provides this insight.
Without the need of probes or sniffers, you can quickly and continuously monitor the makeup of the traffic traversing your most critical links. With integrated metric to flow analysis, the SevOne NPM allows you to quickly spot bandwidth hogs and wasteful traffic, and gives you an understanding of how applications are using your network. These insights are critical to the decisions on how best to prioritize traffic and on the creation of policies to eliminate wasteful traffic.
