Visual UpTime- for Enterprises and Managed Service Providers

Unified Network, VoIP, and Application Remote Site Monitoring
Focused on triage and mean time to identify

The UpTime remote probe (virtual or hardware) is managed with TruView spanning the entire delivery infrastructure for complex, multi-site, enterprise MPLS architectures. Visual UpTime can be used as a self -managed solution by private enterprises with a distributed network environment and multiple data centers; as well as a Managed Service, offered by many of the top global service providers, including AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, Level 3, and XO Communications. Managed Service providers host the TruView UpTime server in their cloud while managing, maintaining, and providing a collaborative view into the solution for the enterprise. Other managed options includes enterprise hosting within their private data center and the service provider managing the system.

 

Overview

Remote site monitoring with UpTime Analysis Service Element (ASEs) are a multi-faceted, economical solution capable of triaging network, application, and VoIP problems in real time. Maximizing your network performance while rolling out new mission critical applications can be viewed in real time (within 5 second) and historically for capacity planning and “right-sizing” your network while planning on growth. The UpTime appliances are continuously monitoring your network in real time from Layer 1 through Layer 7 while providing site to site Service Level Agreements (SLA) and on demand, deep, packet capture as needed. The ASE provides a clear demarcation point at remote locations to identify whether the problem is with the local exchange carrier (LEC), the remote LEC, the Service Provider, bursting bandwidth, top talkers, the application, mis-classified Class of Service (CoS), VoIP, or an application problem.

 

Features

Virtual probe

The Analysis Service Element (ASE) is available in VmWare version allowing for real time traffic visibility within a virtual environment. The vASE located in a data center can provide SLA measurements to a remote hardware appliance, packet capture, application analysis and VLAN/CoS visibility for actual visibility of the network traffic in a virtual environment.

Pro-Active Monitoring

Four categories of Pro-active, real time events are available:

  • Administration traps that support the system.
  • Up/Down network events that support the network.
  • Customizable performance threshold events
  • Enterprise wide application alarms
Scalability

The TruView console acts as the central console allowing hundreds of users access to their needed data. No seat based licensing is required. The TruView server supports 1000s of remote hardware or virtual remote monitoring devices. The system is multi-tenant and supports 100s of customers under a single server. The system is easy to use and administer.

General Features

Exporting NetFlow records is supported to third party collectors, providing a two for one data source from the probe.

100% availability of the local loop as provided by LMIsolate.- ASEs provide keep alive messages when the Customer Provided Router is hard down. This unique feature keeps the circuit alive (not a hard cut) and provides a real time SNMP trap stating the router is the issue.

BGP command line visibility and validation

Back door Telnet Proxy to CPE Router

Management traffic can be Inband and/or via LAN Traffic Management (out of band)- as long as the TruView has an IP route between the Probe and the server.

3rd party integration by forwarding traps to service desks in plain English and launching back into the tool at the site and time the event occurred.

TruView supports single log-invia LDAP and RADIUS.

Hardware ASE Probes

Untitled Document

Analysis Service Elements (ASE's) are data collection and network performance monitoring hardware devices placed on a wide area network (WAN) or Local Area Network (LAN) as part of the TruView or TruView Distributed (formally Visual Performance Manager) system, which offers in-depth, real-time, and historical visibility into the performance of your applications infrastructure via network analysis.

In the system, data gathered by ASEs is stored in the Visual Performance Manager server and displayed and analyzed from the Web client. As a service level management tool, ASEs indicate when services are being met, provide warnings when services start to degrade, and send alerts when services are not met.
