This white paper outlines seven examples of how this can be accomplished using the SevOne Performance Log Appliance (PLA).
Network Monitoring: Challenges
You're in Network Operations. The boss is on the phone, asking why the network isn't operating. Do you have the information to deliver the right answer? No one likes having to say “I don’t know.”
The scale and complexity of today’s IT infrastructures, and the limits of legacy performance monitoring solutions, make blind spots, knowledge gaps and delays inevitable.
The right performance monitoring platform can give you the flexibility, speed, integration, scale and data that you need to confidently answer today’s toughest questions.
Improve Service Delivery with Integrated Metric, Flow, and Log Monitoring
Mature IT organizations are utilizing a variety of different technologies together to better monitor their network and application infrastructure. Tightly integrating performance metrics from SNMP, IP SLA, ICMP, and flow technologies like Jflow, sFlow, Cisco Netflow, and even log data can tell different facets of the same story, and help you reduce time to repair and identify anomalies.
See how SevOne, while also collecting NetFlow data for traffic analysis, provided a single pane of glass for all performance monitoring and reporting.
SevOne's performance reporting allows you to quickly spot bandwidth hogs, and gives you an understanding of the health of your overall network.
See how SevOne monitors, baselines, and alerts on F5 KPIs including session counts, virtual IPs, and number of connections.
SevOne helps keep infrastructure costs under control through more efficient management of existing bandwidth, reducing surplus, and balancing demand.
SevOne collects NetFlow to provide top-talkers reports for quick answers to who is consuming your bandwidth. Learn why SevOne’s SNMP-to-Flow beats all.
Whether you’re looking to improve your application and service delivery, consolidate existing performance monitoring tools and responsibilities or justify the impact of a new technology deployment, the following six steps can help you create the fundamental building blocks of an effective performance monitoring strategy.
Learn the details of the five levels of Maturity Model for infrastructure monitoring, and the advantages of moving through them.
When considering a new performance monitoring solution, that the initial purchase price is not a good indicator of the eventual bottom line. To properly assess Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), organizations must also look at a wide range of hidden costs.
See how SevOne supports IPv4, IPv6, and Dual-Stack Environments in the same performance dashboard to give an integrated view of your environment.
Three things that impact the total cost of ownership with performance monitoring are headcount, API, and licensing.
A performance monitoring solution must provide operators the tools to troubleshoot and solve performance issues as fast as possible.
SevOne monitors, reports, and alerts on your service delivery infrastructure to ensure you meet your customer facing SLAs.
SevOne uses a patented, next-generation architecture built on the concepts of distributed computing. This architecture, known as the SevOne Cluster™, monitors millions of objects from a single pane of glass.
With SevOne, you get the fastest, most scalable performance monitoring platform available today.
Our platform excels at handling the volume, variety, and velocity of data typical of today’s networks. Reports generate in seconds, not minutes or hours.
