LMTV LIVE | Improving Packet Analysis with Synthetic Testing (with Steve Brown and Ward Cobleigh)

LIVE EVENT START TIME : Wednesday, May 16th, 2018 9:30 AM PST

AlterEgoQuiz_LMT200Whether troubleshooting basic user complaints or trying to determine performance in the cloud, the challenges are the same in determining:

  • Where to begin troubleshooting?
  • Is it the network, application, client, server, or now cloud?

We’ll join with experts from Viavi product manager Ward Cobleigh and solutions director Steve Brown to discuss how to use synthetic testing to improve troubleshooting with packet analysis. In this edition of LMTV, we’ll focus on:

  • Extending visibility to the network edge, public cloud, and remote users
  • Confirming issue domain gets to root cause faster

We’ll also run through Viavi’s newest cloud NPM service ObserverLIVE showing troubleshooting examples for the public cloud, distributed architectures, and constant network firefighting scenarios. In the meantime, you can learn about free trials of the service at: www.ObserverLIVE.com


LMTV LIVE | How Tools Must Adapt To NPM Specialists (with Scott Sumner and Boris Rogier)

LIVE Event Start Time: Wednesday, April 25, 2018 - 10:00 AM

We will discuss a number of good technical subjects that relate to troubleshooting tricky scenarios like SaaS applications, SAP and Citrix, and ways that TCP analysis can be used to streamline hybrid-cloud app performance. In particular, we would use this first session under the Accedian brand to discuss more about how we see the future of tools, and what can be done to simplify and accelerate the work of NPM specialists with automation and real-time analysis.

Accedian commits to the future of this space, addressing the emerging challenges that will confront analysts as we move increasingly towards combined legacy /physical and virtual / cloud infrastructure.

LMTV LIVE | Troubleshooting Tesla Model S Connectivity (with Jonathan Whiteside, Darrin Roach and Paul Offord)

Tesla Motors is very much at the forefront of the ‘Connected Vehicle’ revolution, producing vehicles with ‘always on’ connectivity through 4G LTE and WiFi. This gives the driver features such as Google Maps navigation, web access and Spotify.

If you had a connectivity issue with a Tesla Model S, how could you troubleshoot it?  Are specialist tools needed or could you just use standard kit?

In this week's session, Jonathan Whiteside and Darrin Roach of Advance7 describe an experiment to learn more about connected vehicle technology by tracing the data flows between a desktop PC app called Tesla Control, the Tesla Cloud Services and a Tesla Model S.  There were some challenges and a couple of surprises.

IoT: Tesla Model S Remote Control (by Jonathan Whiteside, Darrin Roach and Paul Offord)

With the proliferation and expansion of wireless technologies, it is now becoming commonplace for vehicles to be connected to the Internet for numerous reasons, such as website access, telematics and always connected emergency services.

Tesla Motors is very much at the forefront of the ‘Connected Vehicle’ revolution, producing vehicles with ‘always on’ connectivity through 4G LTE and WiFi.  This gives the driver features such as Google Maps navigation, web access and Spotify.

It also allows remote operation features such as climate control and charge port opening/closing, as well as providing an instant view of battery charge levels.  All these features can be readily accessed from a mobile phone app or desktop app on a PC.

The objective of this experiment was ...

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.
