Unlike other NPM solutions, Riverbed® SteelCentral™ NetProfiler uses full-fidelity flow monitoring to provide unprecedented hybrid network visibility and network security analytics. Use NetProfiler to monitor and troubleshoot your network traffic, and to answer questions such as how much traffic is being consumed? Who is using it? Where is it going? How is it prioritized? and much more.
In today’s digital world, network performance is inextricably linked to business performance. IT organizations need to understand how degraded performance and security incidents affect the end user, and ultimately business performance. SteelCentral NetProfiler baselines normal network behaviors and immediately alerts on performance changes that could affect end-user experience or could indicate a compromise. This allows you to address issues as soon as they arise but before they can cause problems.
SteelCentral NetProfiler automates the mapping of application transactions to their underlying infrastructure so that application definitions and interdependencies are accurate. This helps you create service maps that accelerate the identification of issues across complex application ecosystems, and plan for data center consolidation, cloud, disaster recovery, or virtualization initiatives.
In addition to monitoring your enterprise network, SteelCentral NetProfiler provides insight into virtual and cloud environments. NetProfiler answers cloud-specific questions, such as what resources are being used, who is using it, are you being efficient with your cloud resources, are you incurring unknown costs, and can you diagnose and resolve problems quickly.
