Mu Studio Performance Suite

  1. 1. TECH BRIEF Mu Studio Performance Suite Introduction With the deployment of application-aware systems such as application firewalls, UTMs, and DPI engines, the network is becoming more intelligent at the application level. With this awareness the network has the ability to implement intelligent traffic management, security and QoS policies that are tied to specific application and user characteristics. However, with hundreds of thousands of applications on the network and hundreds of new ones being released every day on millions of devices, test teams are struggling to quickly and effectively test their app-aware systems and networks. Mu Studio Performance Suite is the industry’s first performance testing solution designed for testing application-aware networks. For the first time users are able to address the use cases listed below: Use Cases • Measure the accuracy of application detection and classification • Test the effectiveness of application QoS policies on traffic management • Test the impact of security policies on application performance • Benchmark scalability numbers of real users on their platform Key Benefits • Mirror your production network by re-creating mixes of application traffic in the lab • Gain immediate access to thousands of ready-to-run application tests • Keep up with the latest versions and client types (e.g. Skype, BitTorrent, Jabber on Android, iPhone, PC and iPad) • Gain insight into the root cause of problems using detailed app & user level metrics so you can quickly resolve issues Components • Mu TestCloud • Mu Test Management Server • Mu Scale AppliancesCopyright ©2011, Mu Dynamics, Inc. 1
