Visualize the Impact of Network Device Monitoring

Understand end-to-end connectivity down to the device-layer.

Network Device Monitoring

Quickly pinpointing issues in your internal network can be time-consuming without visibility into underlying device health. Unfortunately, SNMP network monitoring tools that only perform device polling are limiting because they are not able to correlate device health with overall network and application performance. To gain a unified view of network performance for your business, you need a solution that seamlessly pulls device monitoring together with network-layer and application metrics and visualizes them together.

ThousandEyes' Device Layer enables you to see more deeply with network device monitoring that correlates device issues with L3 network, application and routing layers so you can rapidly solve problems that impact application delivery and user experience.

Using LLDP/CDP and SNMP device polling, Device Layer auto-discovers network infrastructure, collects diagnostic information and maps out your devices, remote and local, in a single topology to help quickly locate failure points. This Path Visualization of your corporate network can be customized to match your own understanding of the network.

Device Layer monitoring is available on ThousandEyes Enterprise Agents. These Agents poll network devices like switches, routers and firewalls from vendors such as Cisco, HPE and others for SNMP MIBs to monitor devices on your network for 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.

When troubleshooting with our device monitoring software, you can view your network performance from different layers—either starting at a device level and moving up the stack to see how it's impacted overall performance, or you can start with your application performance and drill down into network monitoring device-specific metrics to isolate issues.

Why ThousandEyes?

Lower Mean Time to Resolution (MTTR)

Gain complete visibility into your network infrastructure so you can quickly get to root cause, reduce MTTR, and improve overall network performance and end user experience.

Drill Down to Pinpoint Device Issues

ThousandEyes enables monitoring of network devices inside your data center or branch office to quickly identify problems and performance.

Correlate Device, Network and Application Layers

Monitor network device health alongside network metrics, such as packet loss, latency and jitter, as well as application metrics, such as page load time, to gain a multi-layered view of your application delivery.
