USING SOFTWARE BASED INTELLIGENCE TO UNCOVER NETWORK PROBLEMS
Cirries’ Data Analysis in Real Time (DART) contains a Virtual Packet Broker (VPB). The VPB is a software-based, intelligent network probe that monitors all traffic, North/South, East/West and processes packets and/or forwards flow data for analysis by DART. This process allows DART to uncover problems no matter where they arise within the virtual environment, or from outside it.
The VPB is designed around a high-performance packet collection and processing engine. It incorporates both flow generation and traffic redirection features, with built-in templates to facilitate the creation of forwarding policy. The VPB collects network traffic from multiple links and applies detailed forwarding policies. It ensures accurate and timely delivery of network-wide traffic data DART and 3rd party tools such as Intrusion Detection/Prevention Systems.
