A Platform for Packet Capture and Network Performance Analytics
EndaceProbes™ provide 100% accurate, full packet capture, while simultaneously hosting third-party analytics and network performance monitoring applications.
Using the powerful Workflow API you can integrate Network History into your network performance monitoring tools for streamlined investigation workflows.
Analysts can click on alerts in their monitoring tools to jump directly to the definitive, packet-level evidence they need to resolve network performance problems, reducing Mean Time to Resolution (MTTR) from hours or days to minutes.
The Fusion Partner Program brings together solutions from leading security and performance analytics vendors who leverage the EndaceProbe's Application Dock hosting and workflow API to integrate Network History into their applications.
Why Network Performance Matters
According to Gartner's Andrew Lerner, the average cost of a network outage is $5,600 a minute. or well over $300k an hour.
It's harder to quantify the impact of network performance issues, but they too can be eye-wateringly costly. Not just in terms of lost productivity but in lost revenue, lost customers and brand damage.
As far back as 2006, Greg Linden from Amazon reported that 100ms of latency costs the company 1% of sales. On 2016 reported revenues that would be $1.359b!
The ability to quickly detect, investigate and remediate network outages or performance issues has become a financial imperative.
The Role of Packet Capture in Network Performance Troubleshooting
Packet capture and protocol analysis have long been the tools of choice for troubleshooting difficult network problems. Full packet data is essential for troubleshooting issues such as High Network Latency, Packet Loss, Asymmetric Routing Issues or Quality of Service Issues.
But outside of telecommunications, mobile and SaaS companies, where the network literally IS the business, until now, few organizations have implemented full-packet capture solutions.
Instead, they've relied on NetFlow monitoring tools and doing ad hoc packet capture where NetFlow doesn't provide the necessary level of detail needed to investigate and solve the issue.
The problem with ad hoc capture is that it's implemented after-the-event. Which means the problem remains unresolved until packets relating to the event can be captured - when it reoccurs (If, indeed, it ever does).
So they're turning to full capture solutions - like our EndaceProbes. When the cost of downtime or impaired performance is so high, they are realizing the cost of not having the right evidence at their fingertips is simply no longer sustainable.
Packet Data Can Help in Investigating
Troubleshooting Network Performance Problems
Access to packet-level recorded Network History can make it significantly easier and faster for analysts to investigate network performance problems and outages to uncover the root cause.
