Network monitoring and analysis with NetVCR

NetVCR® Proactive network, service and application monitoring

NIKSUN NetVCR® is the world’s first full-function appliance for advanced real-time network, service and application performance monitoring that provides zero-loss packet capture not impacted by other processes. NetVCR intelligently integrates vital management functions into a single scalable architecture to facilitate:

  • Proactive end-to-end SLA/QoS monitoring and surveillance Continuous
  • interactive analysis from link to application
  • Multi-timescale analysis (sub-milliseconds to months)
  • Real-time and historical expert analysis
  • Multi-timescale ad-hoc and scheduled reporting (sub-milliseconds to months)

Application Performance Monitoring

Providing 100% visibility into infrastructure in multiple timeframes (from sub-milliseconds to months), NIKSUN NetVCR recognizes a multitude of protocols and applications for proactive discovery, classification, correlation and real-time analysis with just a few mouse clicks!

NIKSUN NetVCR provides a large array of benefits including proactive alerting from link to application, point-and-click diagnostics and troubleshooting, QoS management and reporting, capacity planning/ trending, accounting/usage, application/services monitoring (including e-commerce, email, VoIP, multicast, FIX, custom applications, etc.), performance analysis (loss, delay, latency, jitter, service/application response time, goodput, throughput, etc.) and seamless integration with other management systems.

NIKSUN NetVCR’s consolidation of critical infrastructure and application monitoring and analysis capabilities makes it a highly valuable solution that immediately replaces multiple monitoring/troubleshooting devices and empowers enterprises with the key advantages of automation, triage and cost-efficient instrumentation

Proactive End-to-End SLM and QoS Monitoring

NIKSUN NetVCR continuously monitors both inbound and outbound traffic, applications and services at real-time production traffic rates, and simultaneously captures, timestamps and indexes full packets in the NIKSUN Network Knowledge Warehouse for zero loss monitoring of enterprise, carrier and ISP networks and services while also generating intelligence for insightful analytics. All traffic is analyzed in real-time at line speeds and alerts immediately inform users of service interruptions or infrastructure/application degradation as soon as they occur. Each alert is linked to contextual analysis and corresponding packet information, giving users the option to immediately zoom down to the sub-millisecond level for troubleshooting and root-cause discovery.

Features & Benefits

  • Traffic capture and multi-timescale analysis for traffic rates through 100Gbps
  • Replace manual troubleshooting processes with proactive discovery, classification and analysis of diverse applications and protocols
  • Visibility into network for capacity planning, trending, accounting and usage
  • Monitor QoS and SLAs in real-time Automated troubleshooting via NIKSUN NetXperts
  • Ad-hoc and scheduled reporting on multiple timescales (subseconds to months) for both real-time operations and strategic decision making
  • Plug-and-play device with intuitive web-based interface
  • Drill down to packet-level information for granular deeppacket analysis
  • Role-based access control

Continuous, Interactive In-depth Analysis from Link to Application

Thanks to the embedded NIKSUN Network Knowledge Warehouse, NIKSUN NetVCR is an analyzer that never forgets. Users have access to a large repository of data of actual traffic from sub-second levels to hours and days or even months. This allows users to “rewind” back in time to a problem event for troubleshooting and diagnosis. With shared workspace and web-based link-to-application layer analysis, NIKSUN NetVCR allows users to collaborate across the globe to troubleshoot and diagnose past or current problems seamlessly.

Multi-timescale Analysis Across All OSI Layers

NIKSUN NetVCR supports multi-timescale analysis (from submillisecond levels to minutes, hours, days or even months) and multi-level drill-down (link to application layer), enabling users to start at a high-level view and zoom down to application and/or hosts to detect and analyze short-lived events, that are undetectable when data is aggregated by the minute, for reduced mean-time-toresolution (MTTR). Bounce diagram analysis visualizing each turn in an application session enables even faster diagnostics.

Real-time and Historical Expert Analysis and Performance Alarming

Optional capabilities available via add-on NetXperts, NetRTX and NetSLM modules, further reduce MTTR by providing both real-time and historical advanced analysis and alarming from link to application layers.

Multi-timescale Ad-hoc and Scheduled Reporting

NIKSUN NetVCR facilitates highly customizable reports generated on-demand or per a defined schedule to suit the needs of both senior management and supporting staff. Quick, real-time operational reports spanning extremely flexible time frames of sub-milliseconds to minutes or hours or days maximizes operational efficiency, while long-term reports spanning months or even years of network history assist in strategic decision making, planning, trending, optimization and change control. With NIKSUN NetVCR’s unlimited storage options, it is possible to archive network information for extremely long periods of time.

Unsurpassed monitoring

Powered by groundbreaking technologies, NIKSUN NetVCR redefines the way we monitor networks. It provides seamless service and application performance analytics for the right visibility into your traditional, virtual or hybrid environments. The NetVCR suite gives you unmatched insight while still dramatically reducing power consumption by 60% and requiring 80% less rack space.
