The nGeniusONE unified performance management platform converges network and application performance management to deliver holistic service visibility across application tiers, end-to-end networks, and diverse user devices. Providing one cohesive, consistent set of analytics and views, based on one common database of metadata, nGeniusONE platform improves communication and collaboration across the different functional IT groups to enable unified service delivery management for complex, distributed IT services.
The nGeniusONE platform is powered by Adaptive Session Intelligence™ (ASI) 2.0, NetScout’s next generation Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) technology that exploits the inherent richness of packet-flow data to provide real-time, contextual analysis of service, network, and application performance. Leveraging the superior scalability, depth, and speed of ASI 2.0, nGeniusONE delivers end-to-end visibility with both macro-level and micro-level insights into the performance and consumption of enterprise-wide services to address the needs of a wide range of IT operational teams including network, application, server, and service delivery managers.
The nGeniusONE platform combines real-time situational awareness, historical analysis, and multi-layered analysis capabilities to support efficient IT service management. Simplified service-oriented workflows enable seamless, contextual transitioning across multiple layers of analysis, facilitating efficient hand-off of diverse tasks across the different IT groups. The nGeniusONE platform provides the following key analysis layers:
- Service Dashboard provides real-time, at a glance, holistic status visibility of all business services and their network and application components. The dashboard also delivers alarms and analytics-based, intelligent early warnings to enable the IT organization to proactively and predictively protect service availability and performance.
- Performance Analysis enables comprehensive, multi-dimensional analysis of application and network performance in context with the performance of all dependencies. The nGeniusONE platform includes pre-defined Service Monitors for common enterprise services, a customizable Service Monitor to support user-defined service environments, and a Traffic Monitor for network performance management.
- Session Analysis enables session-level analysis with hop-by-hop transaction analysis.
- Packet Analysis enables deep-dive, protocol-level analysis and forensic evidence collection.
