Bandwidth is cheap, and getting cheaper. That’s probably why the solution to most network problems today is to just throw more bandwidth at it. And although this may alleviate the symptoms of the problem de jour, it doesn’t address the root cause. Bandwidth-related network issues are often an early warning sign of brewing problems, or they can indicate a problem that needs immediate attention, like an infected client reaching out to everyone else on the network.
Bandwidth management and control spans several factors, with the most important being breadth and time. For large enterprise networks, you need to take a top-down approach, assessing overall bandwidth usage at the geographical level first, then drilling into specific areas when anomalies occur. Monitoring and management needs to occur in real time, with the ability to quickly transition into troubleshooting mode, but also needs to support long-term statistical storage for historical and trending analysis. Without a baseline of past behavior, how do you know if there’s a problem now?
With effective bandwidth management and control, you’ll be the hero. Please join us to see how WildPackets can help you meet the bandwidth management challenge while simplifying your network monitoring and analysis infrastructure. You’ll know exactly when more bandwidth is really needed, and you’ll be able to justify it with detailed reports. But you’ll also know when bandwidth usage deviates from normal, indicating a potentially dangerous condition on the network that needs immediate analysis, and you’ll have the tools in place to instantly begin the root cause analysis.
In this web seminar, we will cover:
- The basics of bandwidth management and monitoring
- Key requirements for a complete bandwidth management and monitoring solution
- The importance of establishing network performance baselines
What you will learn:
- How to identify network problems masked as bandwidth issues
- How to use real-time and historical reporting to justify bandwidth upgrades
- How to employ a single solution that spans simple reporting to detailed, root-cause analysis
