Next Level Performance Monitoring – Part I

Network traffic keeps becoming more and more heterogeneous. In many cases, it is not enough to monitor a system as we have done in the past. Here I will present the key ingredients according to Würth Phoenix for successful state of the art performance monitoring and proactive analysis of those applications that are critical for…

Find out who is eating your bandwidth with ntopng

Who really knows what are the protocols used in the local network? Usually with netflow you can distinguish traffic per l4 port (80=http,443=https,..) but this is no more sufficient. Some applications use dynamic ports (see nfs, ftp, routed sap, …), several applications use the same ports, how can we distinguish them? Applications grow and change really fast (like…

How to use anomaly detection to create smarter alerts

Alarms and monitoring go hand in hand. Whenever an algorithm or threshold is used to decide whether the current value of a registered KPI should rise an alarm or not the result can be a hit, a correct reject, a miss or a false alarm. The standard way to rise alarms is studying standard traffic…

Network Performance Monitoring: Port Mirroring vs. Network TAPs vs. Hardware Timestamp

Monitoring network traffic was initially used only for highlighting the typology of network traffic and the quantity of packages/bites broadcasted. This information are important to analyze anomalies, to optimize flows (balance network traffic) and to size the infrastructure.

How Much Bandwidth Do Your IT Services Actually Use?

Nfdump displays the traffic among network devices and thereby allows seeing how much bandwidth is consumed by the single flows. This may be a useful information, but indeed, it is not very meaningful. Since Nfdump just lists the single flows between two ports (including the generated traffic), it is difficult to understand at a glance:…
