Network, Service & Traffic Analysis

Ultimate network transparency

Read more about our powerful StableNet® NetFlow Analysis.

Real-time and historical analysis and reports

StableNet® helps you answer critical management questions about your network, e.g. where the traffic is generated from, are policies being followed, or how about the current application trends and behaviors.

With the comprehensive StableNet® Analyzer functionalities, you know what your normal modus operandi is, so that you can identify and alert on any deviation from the known state.

Project future performance states based upon modeled current data collections and configure SLA-threshold markers to proactively alert and inform when traffic deviation breaches occur.

Understand network behavior and how users and applications consume resources historically and in near real-time and trend.

Root Cause & Impact Analysis

Auto-correlation of alarms

Watch our webinar recording “Trouble Ticketing System Integration with StableNet®” on YouTube.

Automated Root Cause Analysis

StableNet® combines its real-time analysis system with a very efficient and automated Root Cause Analysis system. Due to its dependency-based analysis algorithm, the base for the root cause system is automatically created from the auto-discovery and inventory data, so there is no need to define rules manually. Root Cause Analysis also works in meshed IP networks.

The Root Cause Analysis shows the source of the problem, all affected devices and areas, and hereby allows very effective troubleshooting. It is based on both, Fault and Performance Management data. 

Hence, the otherwise undetected critical service conditions are recognized and highlighted even if the Fault Management system indicates full availability with degraded performance levels at the same time.

Most often, one problem causes many alarms in the network. StableNet® detects all real root causes as fixing a single one solves the network problem including all the symptoms.

Alarm Correlation & Fault Isolation

$

Auto-Triggering & Auto-Clearing

The automated Root Cause Analysis and alarm processing does allow to automate the triggering and clearing of trouble tickets by directly addressing the problem-causing element (“Dark NOC” operations).

q

Stateful Alarm Monitoring

The very effcicient StableNet® Alarm State Machine processes and reduces even large volumes of alarms to a usable level.

W

Quick Isolation

Dependency graphs, based on automatically updated inventory and discovery data, allow an almost instant indication of the root cause and the affected areas which avoids time-consuming rules parsing.

Business Impact & Business Value Assignments

Automated Assignment

on impacted areas via automated Root Cause Analysis.

Interactive Assignment

Easy interactive assignment of business value to a service monitor – in case of a service outage or performance degradation (threshold), a pre-assigned business value will be summed up.

i

Integration of External Scripts

Rapid and easy integration of external business process monitoring scripts via StableNet® XML templates by definition of the input and output parameter of the external script.

Technical Benefits

N

Clear & actionable information

A single alarm does show the problem causing component with the ability to do direct drill down to a device, which had caused a performance issue or the fault

N

No manual rules updates

Day-by-day infrastructure changes are automatically tracked by discovery and the rules-free dependency are graphs updated accordingly

N

Alarm & event correlation

Intelligent correlation for fast problem identification, classification, investigation, and diagnosis

N

Dynamic Rules Generation (DRG)

DRG robotically expands and contracts rule sets to keep troubleshooting data at optimum levels constantly, without human intervention

Cutting down MTTR

Minimizing downtime expands your service availability, and it has a positive impact on your revenue (cf. how much does 1/2 hour downtime cost your organization in revenue?)

Policies, Vulnerabilities & EoX

24/7 Policy & Compliance Validation

Policy Management

StableNet® performs policy checks on devices and systems, and executes defined configuration actions.

Policy Checking Jobs are efficiently handled by distributed StableNet® Agents which are constantly checking configuration deviations from corporate standards. Further, Policy Check Scripts can be used for custom or even more complex checks.

All these checks produce violations or compliant check results similar to measurement data. They can be displayed and reported in the StableNet® Group Analyzer and Policy Check Analyzer. If violations are detected, alarms will be raised automatically.

Enforcing of corporate policies and regulatory requirements, and quickly viewing configuration deviations from those standards.

Key Features – Policy Compliance & Governance

Regulatory compliance standards

Define compliance (service) design rules

Remediation action when a compliance policy is violated

Define compliance policies to identify security weaknesses

Compliance reporting

Define baselines & approved configuration compliancy

Policy violation analytics

... and more

EoX Management

Services for End-of-Life (EoL) and End-of-Service (EoS) updates can be provided additionally. StableNet® has the capability to scan and analyze the inventory database to check device types, associated card types, and operating system software for vendor lifecycle announcements.

The output of this critical information provides an encompassing view of uncovering potential risks, identifies software and hardware obsolescence, allows to align individual technology needs of your organization to the transformative ambitions of the business, and creates a foundation for best practice modern architecture standardization.
The lifecycle reports can be used to feed into hardware and software infrastructure planning, risk assessment, and contribute with optimization of OPEX & CAPEX refresh business cases for financial planning and budgeting purposes.

Lifecycle tracking for compliance, asset, and financial planning.
