Fluke Australia has announced the release of a new version of its Network Time Machine, a plug-and-play packet capture appliance that provides an all in one solution for back-in-time root cause analysis of network and application problems.
The new features in the Network Time Machine version 8 packet capture appliance incorporate the Fluke Networks’ proprietary visual fault domain isolation technology that graphically identifies where problems exist, while continuing to provide 100% stream-to-disk capabilities with deep packet inspection at rates greater than 10 Gbps for more detailed analysis in a single appliance.
Wayne Allen, Program Manager at Fluke Networks identifies that the one question network professionals need answered in troubleshooting scenarios is whether the issue is with the server or the network.
“Version 8 takes the Network Time Machine platform’s performance to the next level by answering this question in a fraction of the time, and by doing so in the form of a single, simple appliance that does not require multiple servers, complex deployment scenarios and continuous configuration and maintenance,” says Allen.
In addition to instantly identifying server versus network problems, the new user interface features user-configurable dashboards that automatically identify and display key performance metrics with instant drill-down capability into root cause analysis.
The software, a free upgrade for existing customers with an active support agreement, is available immediately.
The Network Time Machine packet capture appliance features the following:
- ClearSight Analyser, with application-centric analysis that automatically analyses application flows and can drill down to identify the root cause issues
- Quality of Service (QoS) metrics, statistics and trending charts of application and flow level for buffered and historical data
- real-time video/voice over IP metrics and troubleshooting for enterprise networks
- independently certified performance in excess of 10 Gbps; and
- portable and rack mount versions.
