Software-Defined Network Monitoring

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

What is SDN Monitoring?

Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is an agile approach to network administration and management. SDN centralizes the management of networking by removing the lower level networking functions across vendor landscapes and technologies, thus creating agile networks that can grow and shrink based on user demand or business requirements.

In this new networking landscape, the failure of a single application component can have ripple effects across the network. You need advanced network monitoring and analytics capabilities that can provide visibility into the complex webs of dependencies that exist in new SDN architectures.

A comprehensive and unified network management approach is essential because network operations teams tend to be less effective when they use a larger set of siloed network monitoring and troubleshooting tools.

How Can I Maintain Control of My Highly Dynamic and Complex SDN/NFV Network?

CA’s network monitoring bridges existing infrastructure management capabilities to meet the needs of software-defined networking (SDN)  and network functions virtualization (NFV) network  velocity, reducing management complexity while  improving network visibility.

Why is SDN monitoring important?

The goal of SDN is to improve network control and enable network operations teams to respond quickly to user demand or changing business requirements in our new digital age.  While this new transformational technology allows the IT organization to better serve the business, they also come with operational challenges, like struggling to manage this new complexity due to multiple, disparate monitoring tools.

A comprehensive and scalable SDN monitoring and analytics solution is important because it would fully support SDN architectures with traditional networks together; with full-stack analysis to provide complete visibility into all the infrastructure and protocols supporting your business-critical applications. 

Enterprise IT, managed service providers and cloud providers use our network monitoring tools to troubleshoot issues, optimize resources, demonstrate accountability, analyze anomalies and ensure application and service performance.
