Nodes that provide the monitoring layer, advanced analytics and complete packet inspection across the entire network. Use custom key performance indicator (KPI) metrics. Moves the intelligence of network monitoring closer to the wire to eliminate bottlenecks, dropped packets and increased latency. When a monitoring event happens, users can immediately obtain a detailed packet-level view of the problem. Track indicators in real time and detect intermittent disturbances and application misbehavior. Proactively visualize what’s happening across the network and search across header and payload content in L2-L7 in real-time and forensically. Filter based on any specific traffic profiles and use any combination of header fields and patterns in the packet payload content.
