Today’s applications are architectured to work on hybrid, componentized, containerized, distributed, mobile/sensor environments, and so do the networks that sustain all these applications together. Complexity, traffic volume, intolerance to performance degradation and inefficiency will only increase, demanding real-time and holistic monitoring.
There are several sources of instrumentation for network monitoring data such as: Endpoints metrics, events, logging, sensor data, traffic flow analysis, packet inspection, and synthetic tests. However, often information is collected and visualized in silos, consuming IT resources without providing a complete view of the overall application environment health, all while leaving gaps that can lead to flaws and oversights when assessing network and resource utilization.
