LMTV LIVE | How to Improve Network Troubleshooting (with Keith Bromley and Bill Coon)

With Paul Offord of Advance7 hosting, Keith Bromley from Keysight Technologies (formerly Ixia) and Bill Coon from Riverbed will be talking about how to use network visibility to improve troubleshooting.

According to an Enterprise Management Associates report (Network Management Megatrends 2016), IT teams already spend around 36% of their daily efforts on reactive troubleshooting efforts. In addition, pressure can increase exponentially on IT personnel as problem resolution time increases, since it directly correlates to network and application slowness and downtime. There is a new LMTV event happening on February 21, 2018. Keith Bromley from Keysight Technologies (formerly Ixia) and Bill Coon from Riverbed will be talking about how to use network visibility to improve troubleshooting.

Network visibility solutions allow you to get a clearer picture (in a faster way) as to what is happening on your network. This allows you to reduce your mean time to repair (MTTR) performance.

Some key thoughts we will discuss during the event:

  • A Visibility Architecture is an end-to-end infrastructure which enables physical and virtual network, application, and security visibility
  • There are several possible ways to optimize your troubleshooting activities:
    • Insert taps between the network and monitoring tools (or network packet broker) to improve the quality of monitoring data and time to data acquisition
    • Deploy network packet brokers (NPBs) between those taps and the security and monitoring tools to optimize the data sent to the tools, like Riverbed
    • Deploy NPBs that support floating filters to further decrease the time to data acquisition
    • Use NPBs that support adaptive monitoring, which speeds up the data filter deployment process by using automation to replace manual intervention
    • Implement proactive troubleshooting with application intelligence to create a macroscopic troubleshooting approach that reduces fault localization time
  • Network analysis tools, like those from Riverbed, can provide capabilities to help you improve your network operations. Riverbed's SteelCentral application performance monitoring solution let’s you identify network problems to optimize your network.
  • A visibility architecture typically yields immediate benefits such as the following:  eliminating blind spots, improving data flow to security tools, and maximizing network and tool availability
  • A visibility architecture typically yields immediate benefits such as the following:  eliminating blind spots, reducing costs while maximizing ROI, and simplifying data control

Join us for the second of several discussions to learn how to unleash the power of network visibility.
