NetQoS Launches GigaStor Connector to Unify Application Performance Monitoring with Retrospective Network Analysis: NetQoS SuperAgent and GigaStor Integrated to Speed Troubleshooting via Enterprisewide Identification of Performance Problems and Back-in-Time Analysis for Root Cause Isolation

Share Article

NetQoS(R) Inc. has completed the integration of NetQoS SuperAgent(R) with its GigaStor(TM) appliance. The NetQoS Connector for GigaStor enables SuperAgent to analyze large volumes of packet data captured and stored by the GigaStor technology, enabling network engineers to move seamlessly between the enterprise view of network and application performance and retrospective network analysis (RNA) for easier and faster troubleshooting.

We've answered the call with the integration of NetQoS SuperAgent and GigaStor, which means customers can now better manage their networks from the top down: from a business-level view of application performance all the way down to packet-level analysis as necessary.

    The NetQoS GigaStor appliance collects and stores all packets traversing the network for historical analysis. NetQoS SuperAgent isolates response time issues to the application, server, or network and automatically launches diagnostic investigations into problems. The NetQoS Connector for GigaStor allows SuperAgent to expand its investigations by directly tapping the relevant historical packet-level information on the GigaStor.

Upon receiving an alert from NetQoS SuperAgent identifying the time and location of a performance problem, the GigaStor software's unique time-based navigation quickly sorts through captured packet data to show those packets related to the problem and help identify root cause. Together, the technologies show not only when and where performance degraded, but also how and why that degradation occurred to help customers reduce mean time to repair. The NetQoS Connector enables network engineers to move seamlessly from SuperAgent to the GigaStor software in the same workflow.

"Customers have told us they have been waiting years for a vendor to offer an integrated application performance monitoring and deep-packet inspection solution," said Scott Sherwood, vice president of worldwide sales for NetQoS. "We've answered the call with the integration of NetQoS SuperAgent and GigaStor, which means customers can now better manage their networks from the top down: from a business-level view of application performance all the way down to packet-level analysis as necessary."

The integration was made possible by the NetQoS partnership with Network Instruments(R) announced in December 2006, marking the first collaboration between a network performance management and a network analysis company to combine global application performance monitoring with in-depth packet capture technology. The NetQoS Connector for GigaStor is available today at a cost of $9,995. For more information, visit http://www.netqos.com/solutions/gigastor/index.html.
