Virtualization Integrations

Virtual Server Family: The ProbeVM Family of software-based probes collect and present hundreds of performance and utilization metrics from the associated physical server and hypervisor estate—including CPU utilization and status, memory utilization, disk I/O requests and capacity, as well as network requests and utilization.

Storage Integrations

Our family of hardware-based SAN and NAS Performance Probes are the most advanced, high capacity line-rate data inspection and analysis devices available. They inspect, process and analyze every frame and packet header in real-time. They capture the true, unaltered, I/O profile of the actual application traffic, detecting application performance slowdowns and transmission errors by measuring every I/O transaction from start to finish.
