P A C K E T F L O W S W I T C H l DATA SHEET l HIGHLIGHTS • Gain visibility into the performance of nGenius ® Packet Flow Switch (PFS) fabric. • Avoid human errors such as oversubscription of trunks or filtering out critical application traffic from reaching NETSCOUT ® InfiniStreamNG ® appliances or 3rd party tools. • Consolidated, end-to-end view of the entire PFS layer prevents finger-pointing and allows for faster diagnosis, troubleshooting and resolution. • Available as an integrated solution combining the power of ASI smart data and nGeniusONE ® analytics, or as a standalone module. • Supports nGenius PFS 7000, PFS 6000 and PFS 5000 platforms. PFS Monitor Product Overview PFS Monitor provides end-to-end visibility into the health and amount of traffic coming in and out of the Packet Flow Switch (PFS) fabric. PFS Monitor allows network teams to quickly troubleshoot any packet acquisition issues when/if they occur using the patented ASI technology and nGeniusONE analytics software. The tight integration between nGeniusONE and nGenius PFS products enables IT teams to view PFS port statistics and volumetric data inside nGeniusONE modules such as Grid, Reports, Alarms, Traffic monitors, and others. Automatic configuration makes the integration with nGeniusONE seamless and actionable. Architecture The NETSCOUT approach is unique in the market in showing a consolidated view of all layers. As a result of this end-to-end packet flow visibility, IT teams can be assured that the right amount of data is received by InfiniStreamNG appliances (Figure 1) or by 3rd party tools (Figure 2). This results in accurate service assurance analysis of network and application performance, ultimately reducing MTTR for complex service delivery problems.
