Understanding How Feature Combinations Affect NPB Performance

Network packet brokers (NPBs) are an extremely useful and important component of a network visibility architecture and monitoring strategy. Unfortunately, some vendors have limitations in their product design that have created a blocking architecture which prevents all of the features from simultaneously. What you need is objective data that will show you how an existing, or proposed, solution actually works under real-world conditions.

This solution brief will give you the methodology that you need to:

  • Better understand how your NPB will behave under real-world conditions
  • Help you understand if there are NPB-based monitoring limitations
  • Reduce the financial cost of your monitoring solution by purchasing a solution that runs all desired features simultaneously
