We have an incredibly complicated network that includes an endless number of devices. Until we implemented pt360, those devices were difficult to manage. Now it's very easy for me to track and test how much stress is being placed on any one device to help me decide where the choke points are and which devices need to be replaced. What used to take me all day now takes me minutes.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) July 15, 2008
PacketTrap Networks, a leading network troubleshooting and problem-solving company, today announced that its pt360 PRO has been utilized more than one million times by its base of customers to perform diagnostic tests and analysis on their networks. pt360 PRO is a software solution that provides network engineers with a full suite of network diagnostic tools. The solution's most commonly-used tools are Switch Port Mapper, Cisco Configuration, NetFlow Listener and Traffic Jam.
The network administrator from the world's largest enterprise software company based in Redwood Shores, CA states, "We have an incredibly complicated network that includes an endless number of devices. Until we implemented pt360, those devices were difficult to manage. Now it's very easy for me to track and test how much stress is being placed on any one device to help me decide where the choke points are and which devices need to be replaced. What used to take me all day now takes me minutes."
"In a very short amount of time, tens of thousands of network engineers have made pt360 PRO a part of their daily lives," said Steve Goodman, CEO of PacketTrap Networks. "What drives this high level of usage is the visibility pt360 provides, the depth and breadth of its tools and the simplicity of its design."
Switch Port Mapper allows network administrators and engineers to quickly identify the location of specific devices. PacketTrap's Switch Port Mapper determines which devices are connected to each port on a switch or hub. The tool saves users time and effort by gathering additional key data such as device name, port speed, and status, in one integrated tool.
NetFlow Listener gives IT system administrators/engineers knowledge of real-time network behavior and how traffic impacts the network's overall health. Specifically, NetFlow Listener actually captures flow data from continuous streams of network traffic and converts raw data into useful charts, tables and tree hierarchy that quantify exactly how the corporate network is being utilized.
Cisco Configuration is a central repository for Cisco router configuration and allows users to edit, upload, download and backup IOS configuration files. It also automatically compares the running to the startup configuration, color-coding the results for quick and efficient viewing. PacketTrap's pt360 PRO's Cisco Configuration also decrypts any 7-key router password.
Traffic Jam is a random traffic generator for the WAN. Packet size, circuit bandwidth and load percentage are variable as well as customizable. Traffic Jam bombards WAN pipes and links with specified loads of random packets to measure network performance under known load conditions. It can be used to simulate the latency issues, jitter, high loss and drop rates experienced under peak usage conditions for critical applications and thus allows for solving small problems before they grow into large, costly problems.
