The WAN being an expensive part of the corporate network, one needs to be kept informed of any outage⁄ unscrupulous usage⁄ intermittent connectivity. OpManager leverages Cisco IPSLA technology to help you visualize your WAN links and troubleshoot WAN outages and performance issues, even over your ISP infrastructure.
Maintain your WAN links at peak performance levels with the WAN RTT Monitor
Upgrading your WAN pipes is neither a permanent, nor a cheap solution to improving application performance across the WAN. OpManager’s WAN RTT (Round–Trip–Time) monitor provides details on WAN link latency, bandwidth utilization, Round–Trip–Time and other performance factors for you to completely diagnose and resolve poor WAN performance before you can think of upgrading WAN bandwidth capacity. OpManager leverages powerful Cisco IPSLA and NetFlow technology to help you:
Sometimes terrible network quality may be just as worse as no connectivity at all. A round trip time (WAN RTT) of 200ms across a link where the expected round trip time is 60ms is definitely unacceptable. OpManager allows you to set custom thresholds based on agreed service levels (SLAs) with Service Providers. The WAN RTT dashboard presents Top Paths by RTT Threshold Violation and Top Paths by RTT (Round Trip Time) to help WAN administrators know which WAN links require immediate attention.
OpManager doesn’t merely identify network delay or outage, it also helps you to drill down to the hop level displaying the various paths of communication between the source and destination and the round trip time across each underlying link. OpManager does an automatic Traceroute on the WAN links to present hop–wise latency count and packet loss information across the entire circuit in a single graph.
OpManager provides informative reports that can help in capacity planning and other WAN investment decisions. The WAN specific reports available through OpManager include:
