Cloud-Based Monitoring Automation for Web-Scale Networks


NetSpyGlass is cloud-based, network monitoring automation for network operators seeking an alternative to the usual patchwork of unmanageable tooling. As a SaaS (software-as-a-service) solution, NetSpyGlass requires no up-front investment for network operators to gain real-time network monitoring, mapping, visualization, alerts, analytics and reporting.

With NetSpyGlass, network operators can consolidate tooling and automate monitoring of multi-vendor networks while increasing visibility into what is actually happening in the network at – “web-scale”.

  • Automated

    Fully programmable through embedded Python interpreter

  • Scalable

    Scales to thousands of devices and millions of metrics with ease

  • Extensible

    Integrate monitoring data into external systems using a REST API

  • Real-Time

    Mapping, visualization, monitoring via real-time dashboards

  • Powerful

    Search on alerts, faults, other data and overlay directly on maps

  • Cost-Effective

    Reduces complexity, risks of network downtime and costs

Complexity Obscures Visibility


Network performance monitoring and diagnostics (NPMD) defines a broad set of activities by network operations teams seeking visibility into performance of application, network and infrastructure components with the aid of a wide assortment of tools and technologies. As networks become more complex there is a corresponding proliferation of network management instrumentation, which ironically compounds the complexity. This complexity ultimately obscures visibility into what is really happening in the network, resulting in increased risks of downtime.


Challenge

Enterprise networks are in a constant state of growth and change to meet the needs of the organizations that depend upon them. Monitoring these networks often requires many disparate tools that don’t integrate, don’t scale and that ultimately contribute to the complexity that can result in downtime.

Solution

NetSpyGlass offers a compelling alternative by providing NetOps, DevOps, Security and Applications teams with real-time dashboards and network maps along with sophisticated analytics and search features with the ability to overlay faults, alerts and performance data directly on network maps.

Why NetSpyGlass?


Our exclusive focus is monitoring large-scale network infrastructure built with devices from most major vendors. NetSpyGlass is unique as a network monitoring solution in terms of its scalability, programmability and usability. It is designed to monitor many thousands of devices while collecting millions of metrics per minute. It hosts an embedded Python interpreter enabling automation of complex monitoring workflows. And, its browser-based UI was crafted to make NSG easy to use with minimal maintenance and maximum productivity.
