Overview

Is continuous network performance core to your business?

Network flow analysis is one of the most scalable and cost-effective ways to get a comprehensive look at what’s going on in your network. It helps monitor the makeup of the traffic traversing your network and provides real-time insights to proactively address network issues. These insights are critical because they help assure continuous network performance for your business.

However, for modern networks designed for digital transformation, analyzing network flow data can be a daunting aspect of network management. IBM® SevOne® Network Performance Management (NPM) is designed to provide you with the most advanced ways to analyze network performance metrics and flow data, in a unified network performance monitoring system – all at scale with speed and accuracy.

Benefits

Full visibility

Gain deeper visibility into multi-vendor network traffic patterns, application, and infrastructure behaviors—without the cost of dedicated traffic probe solutions.

Reduced MTTR

Icon representing a hand with the index finger highlighted

Leverage pre-built workflows to pivot between performance metrics and flow reports for the same device or interface to reduce mean time to repair (MTTR).

Real-time insights

Icon representing an objective, a target

Convert network flow data on bandwidth, application traffic and infrastructure behaviors into insights for better capacity planning and operational efficiency.

Scalable flow collection

Icon representing 4 circles with roots and branches connected between them

Scale flow data collection with broad support for industry standard flow formats and flexible reporting on enterprise-specific fields using our patented cluster technology.

Detect anomalies

Integrated metric and flow

With integrated metric and flow analysis, SevOne NPM allows network managers to gain insights into the performance and behaviors of your applications and infrastructure. This not only reduces the time to troubleshoot and resolve network issues but also makes it easier to spot rogue applications or software and congestion points.

App performance insights

App performance insights

With flow traffic analysis from SevOne NPM, you gain real-time, intelligent insights to monitor, manage and optimize your network for continuous performance. These insights can be used to improve customer experience, optimize infrastructure for performance and cost, and reduce time taken to identify, troubleshoot, and resolve network issues—all in one platform.

Identify top talkers

Identify top talkers

SevOne NPM provides a ‘top talkers’ report to identify traffic causing spikes in utilization. With port-based identification, network managers can track and report on applications known to your environment. “Type of Service” (ToS) filters help identify non-approved applications that consume bandwidth and determine their conformance to Quality of Service (QoS) policies.
