Visualize the Impact of Device Health on User Experience

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

Network Device Monitoring

Quickly pinpointing issues in your internal network can be time consuming without visibility into underlying device health. Unfortunately, network monitoring tools that only perform SNMP polling are limiting because they are not able to show you how device health is affecting overall network performance and application delivery. In order to gain a unified view of network performance, you need a solution that seamlessly pulls together device, network and application metrics and visualizes them together.

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

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

Device Layer 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 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, 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 device-specific metrics to isolate issues.

Why ThousandEyes?

Lower Mean Time to Resolution (MTTR)

Get 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 you to monitor network devices inside your data center or branch office and quickly visualize problems to understand their impact on services.

Correlate Device, Network and Application Layers

Monitor 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.
