announces that its Observer performance management platform now provides in-depth tracking and analysis of IPTV video applications. Further, features have been added to facilitate the sharing of Observer data and analysis between IT teams, provide in-depth NFS transaction monitoring, and enhance GigaStor's security investigation capabilities.
The Observer platform now fully supports the monitoring of multicast and unicast IPTV video streams in the context of overall network traffic. Teams can track critical performance metrics including Media Delivery Index, jitter, latency, and packet loss; alarm on specific IPTV errors, and they can also reconstruct and replay IPTV video transmissions.
Observer Reporting Server Open Access
To streamline the process of sharing critical data and analysis between IT teams, the new ORS Open Access feature allows graphs, reports, and metrics from ORS to be embedded into third-party monitoring platforms, such as a Manager of Managers or Security Information and Event Manager solutions. In addition, external platforms can obtain raw data from ORS and apply new analytics.
Tracking NFS Traffic
The new version of the Observer platform now provides transaction-level analytics for Network File System applications. This allows engineers to obtain response times, real-time and historical NFS errors, and transaction types within a single view. If an issue is discovered, the engineer can navigate directly to the problematic transactions and packets.
Identifying IP Location
The new GeoIP Capture feature enhances GigaStor's ability to assist in identifying the source of anomalous activities. In using GigaStor's historical analysis capabilities, managers can now identify the IP address, service provider, and potential location of unknown hosts or sources of malicious activity.
