This step covers the use and deployment of ThousandEyes agents. Our platform delivers cross-layer monitoring tests for cloud, enterprise, and managed endpoints using software agents and ThousandEyes’ unique synthetic monitoring technologies. You can run ThousandEyes agents in cloud environments, on-premises within your own data centers and enterprise networks, or on employee endpoints to enable a 360-degree view of your hybrid digital ecosystem.
Getting Started With ThousandEyes Cloud and Enterprise Agents
You can start monitoring immediately from the providers and regions that best simulate your end-user performance using ThousandEyes Cloud Agents. These pre-deployed agents are located in over 250 cities in 64 countries and are available to you for use today.
With ThousandEyes Enterprise Agents, you can easily deploy ThousandEyes in your own managed environments, such as in your data centers or cloud VPCs. These agents enable you to monitor from your campus edge to your SaaS provider and private WAN networks.
Getting Started with Cloud and Enterprise Agents will teach you how to easily configure ThousandEyes Cloud and Enterprise Agents to monitor the performance of your critical services. There, you will uncover one of the powerful parts of ThousandEyes tests: network path visualization. This feature offers hop-by-hop details and performance metrics along the path that the test (and your users) take while traversing the Internet, cloud provider networks, or your internal network. Path visualization can help to pinpoint issues, as illustrated in Figure 1, quickly.
