Real-time network monitoring and analysis is no easy task on highly-utilized 10 and 40 gigabit networks. Span ports for capturing data may be oversubscribed, or not even available. Simultaneous analysis of multiple data-types or multiple network segments at different speeds is often required. What can you do to address this increased management complexity? Which techniques that worked well on 1G network segments should you avoid? What best practices should be applied?
Achieving both real-time visibility and storing historical network traffic for post-incident analysis is possible in 10 and 40G environments. Careful attention to detail when configuring network management systems will reward you with the analysis and troubleshooting results you desire. Join WildPackets and Ixia/Anue as we investigate these advanced network monitoring and analysis needs with the goal of providing extremely flexible and accurate real-time visibility into any network environment.
In this webinar, we will cover:
Limitations of spanning and mirroring for network analysis
Common pitfalls in 10G network analysis
Matching network analysis requirements with the appropriate equipment configurations
You will learn how to:
Determine the key segments in your network where visibility is needed
Leverage multiple points of visibility to reduce MTTR and find faults before they become failures
Maintain control without losing your sanity or emptying your budget
