Published on

Dell Performance Monitoring Network Management solutions can provide your IT department with the affordable, in-depth visibility and actionable monitoring needed to manage network infrastructure complexity.
Join our webcast to learn how:

• Dynamic discovery of equipment provides the ability to map current location, configuration and interdependencies.
• Real-time visibility across network infrastructures can help ensure availability and performance.
• Actionable information about network health, faults, bandwidth hogs and performance issues reduces the mean-time-to-resolution.
• Proactive analysis can pinpoint the root cause of intermittent, hard to find problems.
Visualizing and optimizing your network is easier than you think

  7. 7. Why Network Discovery• First critical piece of infrastructurevisualization• If you don’t know, you can’t manage• Allows unmanaged devices to becomemanageable• Understand what is connected to what
  8. 8. • Locates and covers non-managed devices• Must leverage variousdiscovery techniques for acomplete networkdatabase• Recommends optimalmonitors and datacollections settings bydevice role• Always on discoveryNetwork Discovery
  9. 9. Device Summary• Quick visualoverview ofdevices and status• Drill in capabilitiesto deviceperformancedetails• Actions, remotecontrol, tools andsettings
  10. 10. • Auto created and drawn based onconnected devices• Color indicators, stats pop-ups,background images• Device drill down capabilities• Populate various maps with thedevices you want to viewNetwork Mapping

  12. 12. Why Analytics• Real-time is required for proactiveadministration• Identify abnormal network utilization,performance, and quality to shorten mean timeto repair (MTTR)• Root Cause Identification• Establishes baseline that represents the regularand expected activity of a device and network• Multiple perspectives into network performance
  13. 13. • Network performance• Fault management• Multi-location views• Immediate visibility into criticaldevice information:– CPU load– Network interface traffic– Latency– Other key performanceindicators (KPIs)Performance Dashboards
  14. 14. • At-a-glance answers to questionsrelating to bandwidth problems• Double-click drilldown analysis to findout which switch / port / machinesare responsible• Quickly identify network congestionand bandwidth consumption• Drill-down into:– Applications– Conversations– Domains– Endpoints– Protocols– InterfacesNetwork Traffic Flow Analysis

Answers, Not ProblemsCompelling Events• Infrastructurerestructuring, deviceupgrades, and new devicepurchases• Major business impactingnetwork failure• New ecommerce sites• Opening a new branch orsubsidiary office• Data center migrations• Building private or publicclouds• Server refresh• Operating Systemupgrade• Holistic view of relevant network information.• Definition & maintenance of database of network configurations.• Centralization of the control over peripherals and implement functions.• Integration of management procedures on heterogeneous environments.NetworkControl• Identify and implement gradual automation of network management functions.• Redesign the infrastructure and its services based on the user feedback andhistorical monitoring of data.• Produce forecasts for planning future network usage, based on baseline data.NetworkOptimization• Respond to end-user & management questions on network performance.• Availability and performance guarantees by ensuring the expected SLA can bemet with the current network infrastructure and resources.• Identify growth and abnormal occurrences in the network infrastructure.• Dynamically react to changes on the network to proactively resolve issues.MonitoringAnd ServiceDelivery
  17. 17. Use Case Scenario: Intermittent Application FailureChallenge Enterprise IT systems rely on teams of specialists, each withdifferent domain expertise. When an application fails due tointermittent loss of network connectivity, the applications groupmay not have the tools necessary to diagnose the issue.Solution Foglight NMS adds critical visibility into flapping ports on networkdevices and allows administrators to correlate network events toapplication performance issues.Benefit Application Performance issues that could not previously beexplained, can be resolved leading to improved end user experience.
  18. 18. Use Case Scenario: Applications run slowChallenge The performance of business critical applications accessed acrossthe network are impacted by non-work related activities like websurfing, streaming You Tube video and Pandora.Solution Foglight NMS provides the traffic data necessary to analyze theamount of bandwidth consumed by non business critical applicationsso that administrators can refocus critical resources where they areneeded.Benefit Increased network bandwidth ensures that business criticalapplications will perform well.
