Performance Solution Highlights
Rewind Your Network - Stop missing critical network events. Instead, rewind your network to quickly troubleshoot sporadic performance problems. The GigaStor network recorder provides massive data collection and unique time-based analysis that eliminate the need to recreate problems, rapidly decreasing resolution time. The GigaStor can store up to 288 TB of network data for days, weeks, or months. Use GigaStor to navigate to the exact moment a problem happened, and see a detailed packet-level view of before, during, and after the occurrence. Monitor LAN, WAN, Ethernet, Gigabit, 10 Gb, OC, and Fibre Channel networks.

Top-Down Performance Management - Observer Reporting Server (ORS) offers a top-down approach that combines enterprise-wide views, macro- and micro-level reporting, and deep drill-down for problem resolution. ORS serves as the performance management center by combining captured packets along with NetFlow, SNMP, and sFlow® metrics to provide an overall view of network health. Using solution-centric workflows, navigate quickly from high-level performance reports to the root-cause.

All-in-One Troubleshooting - Observer Suite is the one-stop troubleshooting powerhouse. It contains Expert Analysis, VoIP tools, in-depth application analysis, Connection Dynamics, stream reconstruction, and more, plus support for SNMP and RMON device management. All this, plus the ability to generate and share reports via the web, add custom decode modules for use in proprietary environments, and extract data from external sources using SOAP.

Seamless Probe-Console Connectivity - Software and hardware probes for monitoring network activity across multiple topologies. Choose from a variety of probes to meet your specific needs. Use probes for troubleshooting, collecting NetFlow data, proactive monitoring, long-term data collection, or network forensics.

High-End Monitoring and Troubleshooting On the Go - When mobility matters, Network Instruments' portable analyzers are the only units you need to manage and troubleshoot complex Gigabit, 10 Gb, WAN, Fibre Channel, and OC problems throughout the network.

High-Level Resource Monitoring for Your Entire Network - Link Analyst® is a robust network monitoring solution that provides powerful reports, network mapping, active discovery, inventory capabilities, and configurable alarms.
