MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – March 18, 2015 – cPacket has launched today the capability for granular, real-time stress testing in any production environment. The goal is to proactively pinpoint and eliminate performance disruptions and enable operations teams to deliver network health and optimized end-users’ experiences.
“Networks are at the heart of business. Therefore, it is critical to maintain their reliability and consistent performance,” said Dr. Rony Kay, founder and CEO of cPacket Networks. “cPacket’s new network treadmill test aims to root-out risks before they lead to disaster. This is similar to your doctor prescribing a treadmill stress test to proactively identify potential health risks.”
Called “Active Test,” this new capability will be included as a standard feature across all of cPacket’s cVu-NG product family. It complements passive monitoring by challenging the production network above baseline behaviors. Using Active Test, the network operations team can flexibly inject customizable traffic profiles to emulate any desired stress level. Under this extra workload, they can identify bottlenecks that would be missed under “normal” load conditions, experiment with traffic engineering scenarios, and diagnose the impact of network stress on applications behavior.
Active Test is Part of the cPacket “Integrated Network Health” Solution
Active Test is an element of cPacket’s Integrated Network Health solutions, which provide a unified approach to performance assurance, proactive mitigation of imminent issues, and real-time trouble shooting. This is possible because of cPacket’s unique Smart Ports technology, which is at the heart of the cVu-NG product family and is based on the company’s Algorithmic Fabric Chip.
