Floating Filters Dramatically Cut Data Collection Time

When you are in a troubleshooting situation, minutes matter. A rapid response is needed to begin troubleshooting activities to limit outage costs. A key component to reducing efforts and reducing the mean time to repair (MTTR) is to choose a network packet broker (NPB) that allows you to create predefined filters, also called floating filters. Once a floating filter is created, it can be applied at will, which can save you several minutes (to more than an hour) of troubleshooting time per occurrence.

Read this solution brief to see how you can:

  • Reduce network downtime
  • Reduce time spent on problem resolution
  • Increase IT personnel efficiency
