Fluke Networks (www.FlukeNetworks.com) announced Visual TruView appliance, a unified, single-box network and application performance monitoring and troubleshooting solution. Visual TruView's integrated approach fills an important need in the market; a recent survey of network professionals conducted by Fluke Networks indicated that more than half do not have the tools they need to quickly and accurately identify issues with VoIP, application transactions and other network performance issues.
To speed problem resolution, TruView integrates the separate disciplines of network and application performance monitoring, element managers and Stream to Disc (S2D) with up to 10G performance,1 so engineers never have to waste time performing "swivel chair" correlations across multiple tool sets. To ensure these integrated functions operate without degrading performance, Visual TruView has 2.5 times more analytical processing power than any competing solution. Plus, TruView features a single, correlated dashboard that makes it easy for engineers to drill down to individual or group of flows, packets or transactions of any user, site or period of time in just a few clicks. Furthermore, it offers automatic identification and configuration of applications and networks, so set up takes just 15 minutes or less.2
An increased need for visibility into network performance and the true cause of issues is clearly a driver for today's IT pros worldwide. "The consequence of this evolution is that the network is placed in a highly visible position in the context of IT operations," according to Gartner. "When an application fails, it is a natural assumption to blame the network, justifiably or not. To redress this perception, the network operations staff needs to recognize the strategic value in real user experience monitoring on a constant basis, identifying underutilized resources and optimizing their infrastructures where possible."
Visual TruView is available immediately, worldwide.
