Scaleable network intelligence
Traffic Sentinel™ provides real-time network visibility to manage large complex networks. An intuitive drill-down interface simplifies navigation through detailed network data to quickly find answers.
- Understand who is using the network, where they are, and what they are doing.
- Rapidly identify the cause of any problems or abnormal traffic.
- Understand trends in usage and accurately target upgrades.
- Generate reports on current and historical performance.
Traffic Sentinel has at its core InMon's patented correlation engine and database that is capable of continuously monitoring tens of thousands of switch/router ports. Sophisticated statistical algorithms combine peformance data from all the devices to build an easily queryable real-time picture of the entire network.
Traffic Sentinel makes use of embedded instrumentation within switches, routers, load balancers, and servers. Industry standard sFlow provides the richest information, greatest scalability, and is supported by the largest number of vendors (see sFlow Capable Devices). Traffic Sentinel also accepts IPFIX and a number of proprietary monitoring technologies, including: Cisco NetFlow, Juniper J-Flow, and HP Extended RMON. The use of embedded switch and router monitoring eliminates the need for probes, providing a simple to deploy, cost effective, method of providing detailed, network-wide coverage.
