Join Rob Hock, SolarWinds product manager, as he provides an overview of Network Performance Monitor's deep packet inspection and the Quality of Experience Dashboard.
The network is under constant attack for being the cause of slow application performance and poor user experience. But how do you actually determine if that poor performance is the result of the network or the application? SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor (NPM) includes deep packet inspection and analysis for application and network performance troubleshooting. With NPM you can quickly and accurately identify network and application issues and answer the question: "Is it the application or the network?". NPM's easy-to-deploy software deep packet inspection sensors continually capture network packets and feed that data into a Quality of Experience (QoE) dashboard for a quick summary of network and application performance metrics. The QoE dashboard provides a visual presentation of over 1200 application (i.e. Skype, SQL, Facebook, etc...) response times, classification (messaging, database, social, etc...), categorization (business vs. non-business), and risk profile, along with a visual presentation of network response time, and graphical display of traffic volume and transaction count.
