Unified visibility across packet, flow, and device metrics
Alluvio NPM products provide a complete picture of the health of your network, but monitoring tools are only as good as the information they are receiving. Garland’s Network TAPs are purpose-built appliances that provide the passive access to packets that Alluvio NPM products depend on.
Figure 1: This is an example of a network architecture with Alluvio NPM solutions supported by Garland TAPs and Aggregators
This example shows how Alluvio AppResponse can obtain monitor streams from multiple 10Gb network links.
By using Garland’s high density, modular fiber network TAPs, the traffic going over 10 10Gbps multimode network links can be unobtrusively copied, bit-for-bit. The passive fiber TAP is a breakout TAP meaning each direction of traffic will generate its own monitor link, eastbound traffic out Port C and westbound traffic out Port D. The 20 10Gb monitor links generated from the TAP would then be terminated into the Garland Advanced Features box, which then load balances the output to the Alluvio AppResponse 8180.
