Seven Ways to Improve Network Troubleshooting: Using Retrospective Network Analysis and NetQoS GigaStor
Often application and network performance problems go undiagnosed and unresolved as engineers struggle to recreate intermittent problems. Reducing or eliminating the time needed to recreate these problems allows engineers to solve problems faster, reducing the mean time to repair. This paper examines the concept of Retrospective Network Analysis (RNA) - capturing and storing significant network traffic data to be analyzed at a later date - and illustrates how using GigaStor to enable RNA can help network engineers streamline network troubleshooting. It also details critical issues IT managers should consider when choosing an RNA solution.
