Leading the Way in Network Technology

Using Application Programming Interfaces (API) to Manage Multiple Devices

Garland Technology's PacketMAX™ Advanced Aggregators are very popular with customers that have a lot of tapped network links or a lot of tools to distribute monitor traffic to. In large environments, multiple aggregators may be needed to consolidate the tapped traffic down to a manageable number of monitor links for tools. While the Advanced Aggregators have web-based management consoles, customers are often looking for a way to simplify the management of these devices, especially when multiple devices are in place.

Network Engineer’s Guide to Reducing Mean Time to Resolution

on 10/16/18 8:00 AM By | Tim O'Neill | 0 Comments | Network Management Network Design
The days of siloed IT infrastructures are quickly ending as services, applications and network components become more interdependent. IT infrastructures are becoming more complex and it’s falling on your shoulders to keep mean time to resolution (MTTR) metrics at a reasonable level. Research shows that the average MTTR in medium-density desktop support centers is nearly 10 hours—but this doesn’t paint a complete picture of the problem.

When A Simple SPAN Port Is Enough

on 9/11/18 8:00 AM By | Timothy Schmidt | 0 Comments | Network Management TAPs vs SPAN
The two most common ways to access and replicate data within your network are TAP and SPAN technology. A Test Access Point (TAP) is a hardware device that copies all of your network data. SPAN or Switch Port Analyzer are mirroring ports within a switch that copies specific data. Network TAPs are always an industry best practice but in a few specific situations when a SPAN port suffices. When monitoring products are looking for low bandwidth application layer events like “conversation or connection analysis,” “application flows,” and applications where real time and knowing real delta times are not important. SPAN could also be used in a remote location that doesn’t justify a permanent deployment, offering temporary access for troubleshooting.
