Network Performance Monitoring for Latency Sensitive Applications – White Paper

Introduction to Network Latency Engineering

Introduction to Network Latency Engineering

Latency and jitter are causes of poor experiences, especially for streaming media, high frequency trading, and other high-performance use cases. Characterizing is the first step to eliminating or minimizing.

Learn About Precision Monitoring and Eliminating/Minimizing Latency

  • Gain a deep understanding of what causes latency, jitter and the underlying tradeoffs

  • Detecting, characterizing, and analyzing latency and jitter

  • Why hardware-acceleration is necessary for effective precision monitoring

  • Also learn why increasing bandwidth may not lower latency

Solve the Problem by Knowing the Nature of the Problem

Eliminating or at least minimizing network latency so that it does not adversely impact end-user experiences and processing results relies on detecting, characterizing, and analyzing latency and jitter to understand the underlying cause and tradeoffs. This white paper provides a foundational understanding and observations that will help you to optimize performance for applications and use cases that have specific tolerances for latency and jitter.

  • If you cannot measure network latency, you cannot control it and cannot improve it.

  • The combination of multiple network latency sources produces a complex latency profile. The relative contribution of different latency sources to the overall performance of distributed applications is implementation specific; it depends on the software implementation, hosts, network hardware, protocols, and configuration.

  • Effective latency engineering relies on understanding the latency profile in the context of real (relevant) traffic.

  • For accurate measurement of latency sensitive applications in high speed network environments, it is most appropriate to use transparent hardware probes that time-stamp events on-the-fly and do not create the risk of altering software application behavior.
