Network Monitoring & Analytics provides network operators and administrators with a deeper understanding of their network. A typical network – enterprise, data center, telecom or cloud – is hugely diverse. It comprises various devices from multiple vendors – a load balancer from F5, a firewall from Checkpoint, routers, and switches from Cisco and Juniper. Pinpointing and addressing any issue in such a network without relevant statistics and analytical information is tedious and error-prone.
Network Monitoring & Analytics allows the operator to collect valuable continuous data, eliminate noise, analyze trends and predict future behavior. True network analytics needs to start by being completely vendor agnostic. It should be able to collect data across disparate devices, store the relevant time series data and correlate that data in real-time.
