PathView Cloud DataSheet
Visibility and Answers, Quickly
Businesses today use a wide variety of applications that are delivered by every combination of service provider (Internal, Saas, Cloud, Hosted) and network (LAN, WAN, VPN, MPLS, Wireless, Mobile). Traditional network management tools were never designed for this highly diversified environment. PathView is the first and only tool designed to measure the performance of any application over any network.
End to End Performance
Other network management solutions look AT the network by collecting data about the devices that make up the network. This is critical when there is an issue, but tells you nothing about how well the network is actually delivering the applications you care about.
PathView takes a revolutionary approach of looking THROUGH the network, measuring the actual performance experienced by your applications
Any Network, Any Time
PathViews patented technology measures performance in real time over any network. This gives you a unified view into the performance of all of the critical business services delivered over Wifi, LAN, WAN, VPN, MPLS, Internet, Cloud, Saas….
PathView’s patented technology is extremely lightweight, designed to operate on production networks without impacting the performance of your critical applications
When performance is poor PathView Cloud automatically collects all relevant information about, including device status via SNMP, application activity via NetFlow with deep packet inspection, network activity with packet capture along with an advanced network diagnostic from PathView.
This intelligent response to done according to your organizations schedule, with custom responses and notifications based on your business cycles.
Network Usage Insight Built for the Internet Age
Complete Application Insight
Companies today need network usage tools that are smarter than ever before with the ability to look deep into web traffic and identify what applications are in use, and if that traffic is relevant to their business. FlowView’s Intelligent Application Awareness automatically identifies the applications and websites in network traffic
Works on Any Network
One major challenge with traditional Flow analysis systems is that you need network devices capable of generating NetFlow records to have any insight into network use. But what about offices where you don’t have NetFlow capable devices? FlowView was designed to work on any network, giving you the same detailed insight on networks of all sizes.
For larger offices FlowView can be connected to a span or mirror port. For offices without this option PathView appliances can be placed inline, giving complete visibility without introducing a single point of failure thanks to the automatic fail-to-wire capability which automatically re-connects the connection to the internet if the PathView appliance has an issue of any kind.
Enterprise class, without the enterprise price tag
FlowView provides a level of insight and intelligence that surpasses even the most expensive network analyzers while costing a fraction of what other solutions cost. This is thanks to the revolutionary mix of purpose built appliances offering high speed collection and the power of the cloud for the detailed analysis.
Intelligent Packet Capture
With FlowView Plus you can not only identify the applications in use, you can perform Wireshark compatible packet captures easily and securely from any PathView Appliance. These packet captures can initiated manually, by a schedule or intelligently by a PathView of FlowView alert (coming April). All packet captures are encrypted using military grade encryption (AES 256-bit, FIPS 140-2 compliant) with a passphrase that is never shared with AppNeta.
Accurate End User Experience
AppView Web gives you an accurate picture of the users experience of a web application by using the web application like a real user. Simply start the AppView Web browser plugin and then use the web application normally to automatically create a script for AppView Web to follow. Realistic application use with no need to learn a complicated scripting language.
The steps in the script, including authentication, will be automatically followed by AppView Web every few minutes. When your web application is not performing well or errors are seen you can be notified with integrated intelligent alerting (Coming in March)
AppView Web has the detail needed to WHY your web application is performing poorly. You can easily drill into every execution of your user script to view the details of every step, even down to the timing of specific objects on the pages.
Note: If your organization develops custom web applications you are measuring, TraceView gives you unprecedented insight into what is happening inside your web application stack. [Visit TraceView]
Load Test, No Phones required
AppView Voice has been selected by multiple leading VoIP vendors as their standard for pre-deployment assessments of their customers networks for one simple reason. It is the simplest and easiest way to load a network with realistic VoIP calls and diagnose any network issues before installing any VoIP Hardware.
AppView Voice leverages the PathView advanced diagnostic engine to identify the source and cause of network issues, even over the WAN, MPLS and open internet. This makes it the ideal solution for locations using hosted VoIP or UC systems that are location in other corporate offices.
Advanced Ramp Testing
AppView Voice can test VoIP performance over extended periods of time and can automatically generate ramp up the call volume over time. This enables you to see the call quality across normal business cycles and at specific concurrent call volume, automatically identifying how many calls your network can handle now and what you need to fix to increase your capacity.
Executive Report Generation
AppView Voice can generate branded executive reports, summarizing the outcome of pre-deployment tests. Tests at multiple locations can be included in one report, giving executives a complete view across multiple offices that may have been tested at different times.
Find network issues before installation or rollout
AppView Video is a fully self sufficient system for testing the performance of a distributed video conferencing network with real load. All of this is done without the need of actual video conference hardware at deployment locations and provides detailed insight the quality of expected video conferences.
Broadcast of Full Mesh
Easily test a centralized video broadcast, a full mesh interactive conference or anything inbetween with AppVoew Video. Customize settings for bandwidth, audio and video codecs between each location, exactly as video conferencing systems do automatically.
Powerful Testing Options
AppView Video was designed in conjunction with video conferencing experts to accurate model the multiple traffic streams involved in a video conference session: Signaling, Voice, Video each with their own discrete port, protocol and QoS settings.
