Find Strength in Our Analytics

Gigabit and 10 Gb are the most critical links in an organization, used for data centers or high-demand, business critical applications. Pinpointing problems as quickly as possible is the most important concern administrators face when performance is impacted. That’s where we come in. Observer’s Expert Analysis alerts you to potential problems and offers solutions. Use it to sift through and isolate problems from the millions of packets you'll capture on a high-speed network. Utilize Observer’s MultiHop Analysis to automatically start simultaneous packet captures from different network segments and synchronize the buffers to find delay and packet loss. Sample Observer screen image In Connection Dynamics, get easy-to-read graphical views of system conversations for instant identification of long latency and response times. Retransmissions and lost packets are flagged for quick identification.

Gigabit & 10 Gb Reporting
In order to maintain business functions and ensure smooth application delivery it is critical to monitor and understand bandwidth usage patterns. Observer allows you to create and share custom reports and compare them over time to track performance changes.From a higher level, the Observer Reporting Server provides enterprise-wide, aggregate reporting with real-time updates so you can ensure access to high-capacity links. Unlike other solutions, it also allows you to drill down from this level to troubleshoot at the packet level. When a sporadic Gigabit or 10 Gb link issue is discovered, use the GigaStor retrospective network analysis appliance to rewind your network to the problem period and perform troubleshooting and analysis. gig-scr-e
