Modern enterprise networks present huge challenges to IT professionals. An overwhelming volume of network traffic causes their network performance monitoring tools to bury them in false alarms and low-priority problems. Business requirements for more capacity, greater reliability, and faster issue resolution (while budgets remain flat, at best) add to the strain. What can IT professionals do? One answer is to stop relying on tools based on decades old NetFlow and embrace network transaction-based solutions able to monitor latency, quality, utilization and saturation, providing actionable visibility into high-performance networks and reducing the Mean Time To Resolution (MTTR) of network performance issues.
