Monitor Cisco ACI Infrastructure Solutions With Ease

Cisco has created a software defined networking (SDN) solution called Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI). To optimize this solution for monitoring purposes, a Visibility Architecture consisting of taps and network packet brokers (NPBs) is needed. The Visibility Architecture is used to overcome the inherent limitations of an ACI architecture and maximize the use of your Cisco equipment.

Read this document to learn how to:

  • Improve ACI deployments with packet filtering, header striping, and packet slicing
  • Reduce monitoring data bandwidth by applying de-duplication
  • Eliminate encapsulation issues by using an NPB to strip off VXLAN headers
