SD-WAN Monitoring

The Critical Guide to Modern Network Monitoring: A Handbook for NetOps Leaders and Practitioners

What is SD-WAN Monitoring?

You should monitor SDN-WAN because SD-WAN is a specific application of SDN that is applied to the WAN and used to connect enterprise networks, including branch offices and data centers across geographies. The technology facilitates the replacement of Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) with internet, enables direct access to the public cloud from remote sites, and supports infrastructure consolidation through network functions virtualization (NFV). The end result is a network that improves global application performance.

As more critical applications migrate to the cloud, network monitoring tools need to provide visability into the performance of SD-WAN deployments, the associated applications and service chains—as well as the legacy networks supporting all of it.

Hear what the experts are saying about SD-WAN.

CA Technologies wanted to get a better understanding of just how easier SD-WAN technologies makes the job of network operations, so we worked with Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) and developed this infographic to ask the question…Are you really ready for SD-WAN?

Why is SD-WAN monitoring important?

As SD-WAN supports the cloud workload migrations, network monitoring tools must provide insights into these new architectures. It is essential for network operations to trace the root cause of performance problems to the cloud provider, the service provider network or the internal enterprise for reduced service disruptions. 

In a single operations dashboard, Network Operations Analytics from CA delivers a full stack monitoring and analytics platform for assuring traditional WAN and SD-WAN, which provides: 

  • SDN relationship mapping, which enables easy NFV management
  • Validation of traffic decisions, made by SD-WAN intelligence
  • Easy troubleshooting workflows, to assure SD-WAN health
  • Unified monitoring of both SD-WAN and traditional WAN
