The these concepts are central to Network Visibility:

  • Network Visibility can identify two types of performance bottlenecks
    • Network-performance bottlenecks 
    • App/Network-interaction bottlenecks (for example, how an application tier or node uses network resources)
  • The Network Dashboard shows the network-level view of a monitored application. You can quickly identify network elements with performance issues (red/yellow links or tiers), view Key Performance Indicators for each network element, and troubleshoot individual elements (right-click an element and select View Metrics).
  • Network Agents can detect load balancers and TCP endpoints, which appear in network flow maps (but not application flow maps), and sometimes function as traffic sources and destinations.
  • Network Visibility can collect metrics for individual application flows, TCP connections, and network links.
  • To support in-depth troubleshooting, you can configure Network Agents to collect detailed diagnostic metrics for nodes and connections with performance issues.
