- Prevent slow response time and service failure by checking for traffic overload and the availability of data paths in load balancers.
- Perform frontend and backend health checks of your application from the load balancer's point of view. Tracking the status of health probes gives a detailed insight into the availability of resources to serve traffic. For quick analysis, you can sort out IP addresses in the order of the best performer to the worst.
- Leverage tons of visual reports in the form of charts, graphs, meters, and tables to analyze your load balancer performance with ease.
- Important parameters that can be monitored include SNAT port usage, data path availability, health probe status, SNAT connection stats, packet counts, data throughput, and more.
