cVU

Operational Intelligence for Your Entire Network

cPacket’s cVu Monitoring nodes provide the monitoring layer within your Intelligent Monitoring Fabric. They provide advanced analytics and complete packet inspection across your entire network, give you proactive visibility using custom key performance indicator (KPI) metrics. Powered by our patented Algorithmic Fabric chip, cVu is able to deliver complete packet inspection at full line-rate. By the moving intelligence of your network monitoring closer to the wire, you are able to eliminate bottlenecks, dropped packets and increased latency.

Virtually Centralized

The distributed architecture of the cPacket Intelligent Monitoring Fabric eliminates the needs to backhaul and aggregate traffic to perform centralized monitoring of your network. Instead, the cVu monitoring appliances are distributed across the network, providing analysis at the wire. This drastically simplifies your monitoring architecture, and provides improved performance and reduced costs over legacy approaches.

Once a monitoring event happens, you can immediate obtain the detailed packet-level view of the problem, for faster and more effective troubleshooting. This approach can reduce troubleshooting times by more than 80%, allowing you to provide your customers with a better user experience, and reduces operational expense (OPEX) significantly.

Correlated Performance Metrics

Our Integrated Monitoring Architecture allows you to correlate data from across the network, improving your network’s performance, and drastically simplify monitoring. Similar to how stock traders use interactive “stock charts” to visualize, compare and analyze pricing, network operators can compare metrics from anywhere across the network environment.

Proactive Network Awareness

Become aware of hotspots, bottlenecks, and behavioral anomalies immediately by tracking key indicators in real-time. Automatic triggers identify where the next problem will likely occur, allowing you to take steps to mitigate it before your end-users are impacted. This can even allow you to detect intermittent disturbances and application misbehavior.

Real-time and Forensic Searches

With cPacket, you can not only proactively visualize what’s happening across the network, but also search across both header and payload content across L2-L7 – both in real-time and forensically. You can filter based on any specific traffic profiles, and use any combination of header fields and patterns in the packets’ payload content.

cPacket’s Operational Intelligence Fabric enables more efficient work flow processes for troubleshooting, optimization, and maintenance. It radically simplifies access to critical information in real-time and on demand. Unlike legacy monitoring solutions where operation teams must spend an inordinate amount of time and resources looking for the relevant data, cPacket delivers instant access to the critical information, enabling more productive utilization of time and resources. Additionally, it supports effective capacity planning and traffic engineering, while shortening the time to resolution of performance bottlenecks and intermittent application behavior.

Network Visualization Simplifies Monitoring

cPacket Network Visualization Simplifies Monitoring

Visualization-layer Maps are a dashboard overlay that transforms conventional static network maps into dynamic traffic views, by adding real-time visual insight metrics. This enables operations teams to easily view, optimize and troubleshoot complex data centers, intermittent cloud applications and bottlenecks in high speed networks.
