Problems

Today’s networks are incredibly complex and impressively intertwined with applications, data storage, hypervisors, websites, firewalls, and a mobile ecosystem that grows daily.

Extracting insight from these environments requires expertise, ideally embedded in analysis tools and presented in a way made useful through contextual awareness, a focus on desired outcomes, and an awareness of the entire hierarchy from low-level network packet data to user actions. This information is needed in both real-time views as well as stored for ongoing historical analysis.

Solution

Savvius Omnipeek and Omnipliances enable network engineers to graph statistics and generate reports to create a baseline view of network activity. Creating baselines becomes easier with ELK, as the platform aggregates statistics from one or more Omnipliances over long periods of time, and can leverage cloud storage to amass terabytes of historical data. Users can create ELK dashboards to view custom collections of statistics and study fluctuations in these statistics over time. These dashboard views can be used to generate reports manually or automatically on a pre-ordained schedule.
