HPE Intelligent Management Center (IMC) Software, with the optional HPE IMC Virtual Application Networking Fabric Manager Software, includes added functionality called HPE FlexFabric Network Analytics. When HPE FlexFabric Network Analytics is combined with the HPE FlexFabric 5950 Switch it delivers real time visibility of microburst network congestion which negatively impacts overall network operations and performance. Microbursts last only for sub seconds making its detection difficult by today’s network monitoring tools such as SNMP. HPE FlexFabric Network Analytics enables the network operator to pinpoint these microburst congestion points and their sources. This gives the network operator granular visibility into these spontaneous congestion points. With this information operators will be able to analyze in more detail their network configuration and make the necessary adjustments as needed for optimal network performance.

What's new

  • Detection of the source of sub second microbursts.
  • Support for N Port Virtualization, Fibre CHannel Ping, and Fibre Channel TraceRoute
  • Offers VxLAN, the next generation VLAN overlay technology

Features

HPE FlexFabric Network Analytics Provides Microburst Congestion Detection

HPE IMC Virtual Application Networking Fabric Manager Software includes HPE FlexFabric Network Analytics which in conjunction with the HPE FlexFabric 5950 Switch delivers real time visibility of microburst network congestion which negatively impacts overall network operations and performance.

Network congestions caused by microbursts last for sub seconds making detection difficult by today’s network monitoring tools such as SNMP. The HPE FlexFabric Network Analytics software enables the network operator to pinpoint microburst congestion points and the sources.
