End-to-End Network Performance
Network issues can doom user transactions, page loads and service availability and performance. Select any combination of Cloud and Enterprise Agents and a target URL or IP address and we send lightweight bursts of TCP or ICMP traffic from agents to the target to measure loss, latency and jitter. When you have agents on both ends, you can run network tests between them that leverage UDP.
Web Server Availability and Response Time
A variety of protocol-specific tests (HTTP, SIP, RTP) can be run in parallel with web transactions, or standalone, alongside network layer visibility.
DNS Performance and Integrity
DNS tests monitor the availability and response time of DNS servers, as well as the integrity of DNS responses.
- Run recursive and iterative queries to DNS servers and get alerted to performance and security issues
- Trace DNS domain resolution across every zone in DNS delegation
- Validate and monitor DNSSEC
Network Device Metrics
ThousandEyes agents deployed within your own environment can poll network devices like switches, routers and firewalls via SNMP to collect link states, throughput, errors, discards by interface, as well as other metrics. You can then track, report and alert on the performance of a device, subnet or your entire network, and compare trends across time and locations to detect bottlenecks. Device health data is tightly correlated with network performance visibility so you can quickly pinpoint root cause down to the interface level. Supported MIBs include those from vendors such as Cisco, HPE and others.
Auto-Discovery of Network Topology
Using LLDP/CDP and SNMP device polling, ThousandEyes auto-discovers your network infrastructure, collects diagnostic information and maps out your devices, remote and local, in a single topology to help you quickly locate failure points. This Path Visualization of your corporate network can be customized to match your own knowledge of the network.
