WHY SEVONE NMS CLUSTER FOR FLOWS?
With real-time flow analysis, the SevOne NMS Cluster helps you pinpoint potential problems on the spot. NMS Cluster not only allows you to quickly and easily spot bandwidth hogs and wasteful traffic; it also gives you insight into how specific applications are using your network. This information is critical when it comes to prioritizing traffic and creating policies that help eliminate waste.
Identify Rogue Applications
- View and customize lists of recognized applications attained through port-based identification
- Use “Type of Service” (ToS) Filters to identify the traffic running on your network, non-approved applications consuming bandwidth, and the impact on your Quality of Service (QoS) policies
Pinpoint Top Talkers
Quickly identify what type of traffic contributed to a spike, resolve DNS issues and check the “Next Hop” using the SevOne Top Talkers report
Gain Immediate Access to Historical Data
Store up to seven days of raw flow data and one year of aggregated flow data at one-minute intervals for each report template and interface
Troubleshoot DNS Storms
Troubleshoot low bandwidth and high impact events like DNS storms
Detect Micro Spikes

- Collect up to 12 million flows per minute, and grow data collection infinitely as part of the distributed SevOne NMS Cluster architecture
WHY SEVONE NMS CLUSTER FOR LOGS?
With the SevOne NMS Cluster, you can move beyond traditional log search, into real-time troubleshooting of log data at scale. That’s because the NMS Cluster can extract terabytes of log data daily and correlates it to performance events, thereby eliminating the need for search in your process. It also increases application performance visibility by providing single-click drill-down from related data— SNMP metrics to NetFlow records to syslog files, for example.

WHY SEVONE NMS CLUSTER FOR USER EXPERIENCE DATA?
Software, applications and services running on the network infrastructure are the lifeblood of every carrier and large enterprise. And, the ability to detect and rapidly resolve problems with these applications and services can mean the difference of millions of users, dollars in revenue, or hours in productivity. As a result, being able to understand how well end users are experiencing a service or application has become a business critical requirement—whether it’s hosted on premises, across a WAN infrastructure, in a hybrid cloud or delivered by a provider.
By integrating the SevOne NMS Cluster with SevOne User Experience, a resell of AppNeta Performance Manager, users can actively test entire network paths by using synthetic traffic and collect in-depth end-user experience data across enterprise, cloud and communication service provider infrastructures. Now you can easily measure actual application and service performance and directly correlate it to the network and digital infrastructure that’s responsible for delivering it. Whether you’re looking to measure over Wi-Fi access points to local or remote servers, over the mobile infrastructure, over VPN to remote offices, or over the Internet to Web applications and into cloud services, SevOne User Experience allows you to gather and integrate user experience with other metric, flow and log data as part of your SevOne NMS Cluster deployment.
Monitor Any Network Without Impacting Production Applications
Get insight into any network, even cloud providers’, by sending and receiving precisely timed network traffic, so you can assess performance in real time. Always-on monitoring gives one-minute granularity on latency, data loss and jitter, stored for up to a year, while providing insight into actual versus provisioned capacity.
Correlate Application and Network Performance
With application-based SLAs, SevOne User Experience automatically knows when network performance blips are just blips, and when they’re affecting your end users. A continuous stream of performance insight is compared against your application specific SLAs, so you know exactly when and how network performance impacts application performance.
Find and Fix Problems Fast on Any Digital Infrastructure
Troubleshooting application response issues often require network, system and infrastructure teams to work together. With SevOne User Experience, multiple teams can actively test, troubleshoot and pinpoint issues across the entire path applications take, including user, network, server, databases and more. With an optional software license, you can enable up to 10Gbps deep packet inspection for further details on application traffic. With SevOne User Experience, you can gain valuable insight, and drive cross team collaboration that can reduce mean time to resolution opposed to time to innocence.
