• Transparency to maximise performance of your IT resources

Performance Management

IT interplay is only efficient if the interplay between all of the components is perfectly coordinated. Here, the high-performance transfer of information plays a crucial role. That’s why network bandwidth monitoring is one of the core tasks facing the network specialists.

  • Network transparency
  • Optimisation of IT resources
  • Early detection of bottlenecks
  • Protection against threats in the network environment

Rapidly analyse, present and monitor information about network performance

The solutions provided by 4-tune make it possible to rapidly analyse, present and monitor information about network performance data, including top talkers, top protocols, top conversations and more.

Fundamentals

Performance management of the network infrastructure forms the basis for optimal use of application efficiency. From the user’s side, access must be possible at all times, from every location and in a secure and efficient manner. This requires full transparency across the entire company in terms of the composition of data traffic for every connection, on every system and on all protocols. In addition, when it comes to critical patterns, trend analyses and alerts provide an efficient and useful means to detect bottlenecks early on and even patterns that are threatening in terms of security.

The solutions provided by 4-tune make it possible to rapidly analyse, present and monitor information about network performance data, including top talkers, top protocols, top conversations and more. Furthermore, it is possible to carry out customer-specific analyses, for example, the search of a specific bandwidth usage based on IP address, host name, protocol and so on.

Advantages

Comprehensive performance information within the network in the form of reports about specific types of service (ToS) to obtain comprehensive knowledge such as how different types of data traffic occur in the network and how they are treated/prioritised there.

Widely-used systems and components such as Cisco IOS® NetFlow and IP Flow information from (IPFIX)-capable routers and switches is relied on to provide meaningful data in an economic manner. This data is collected, prepared and assembled in reports.

QoS policies are analysed using flow data to detect the impact rich media applications such as language and video have on mission-critical applications and overall network traffic.

It is possible to search according to specific patterns and events to uncover and contain unwanted activities in order to limit unwanted traffic for the purpose of preventing the abuse of capabilities.

Benefits

This information can help identify the causes of performance problems, review the effects of planned and unplanned changes to the network and avoid unnecessary WAN costs.
