Complete network visibility and control
Traffic Sentinel™ is the first of a new class of performance management tools specifically designed to meet the challenge of convergence. Traffic Sentinel makes use of the multi-vendor sFlow standard to provide scalable, real-time visibility across the entire networked infrastructure, delivering the integrated picture of network, storage, server and communications performance needed to ensure optimal service delivery in a converged infrastructure.
- Manage network, server, storage and communications performance from a single "pane of glass"
- Identify network, computing and storage hot spots
- Monitor performance of scale-out storage, compute and switch clusters
- Track network, server and application dependencies
- Eliminate congestion and ensure quality of service
- Identify underutilized resources and improve efficiency
- Account for usage
Traffic Sentinel makes use of embedded instrumentation within switches, routers and servers. The breakthrough technology, sFlow®, provides the richest information, greatest scalability and is supported by the largest number of vendors (see sFlow Capable Devices). However, Traffic Sentinel also accepts IPFIX) and a number of proprietary monitoring technologies, including: Cisco NetFlow, Juniper J-Flow, and Hewlett-Packard Extended RMON. The use of embedded switch and router monitoring eliminates the need for probes, providing a cost effective way of providing detailed, network-wide coverage.

sFlowTrend™ is a free, graphical, sFlow collector, plotting top talkers and interface counters over time. sFlow is a popular, industry standard, technology for monitoring traffic in networks. Many network devices are capable of generating sFlow and can be monitored using sFlowTrend.
sFlow-RT is a real-time sFlow analytics engine for use in Software Defined Networking (SDN) stacks.
Hyper-V Agent is a fully-featured sFlow agent for Microsoft Hyper-V, including sFlow monitoring for the Hyper-V virtual switch (running on Windows Server 2012), and physical and virtual host monitoring.
