Dynatrace and Ixia team up to provide scalable end-to-end network visibility
Deep and wide visibility into physical and virtual networks of any size
Ixia network visibility technology enhances Dynatrace application performance management capabilities by extending access to network traffic across physical and virtual network deployments of any size.
Traffic is aggregated from all network access points that require monitoring, for comprehensive end-to-end visibility—enabling enterprise customers to identify and correct application issues before they affect the user experience.
Ixia Network Packet Brokers (NPBs) sit between network access points and the Dynatrace monitoring solution, simultaneously aggregating traffic from multiple SPANs and taps and directing corresponding packets and NetFlow records to Dynatrace for analysis.
Ixia complements Dynatrace by:
Allowing traffic from a single network access point to be shared with multiple monitoring tools. Doing so mitigates SPAN/tap shortages that occur as multiple tools attach to an access point
Filtering out unneeded traffic and removing duplicate packets
Providing access to all needed physical and virtual network traffic
Enabling efficient access to asymmetric traffic across large heterogeneous networks
Improving tool utilization by filtering out traffic not needed for analysis
Load-balancing traffic across multiple DC RUM input ports or devices
Allowing filters to be tightened dynamically to ensure key transactions are analyzed as traffic spikes
Redirecting traffic among multiple DC RUM devices on a network to provide high availability
