Get seamless visibility into your entire network, end to end, without having to hop between consoles. See your SDN and non-SDN infrastructure as a single holistic network, and quickly visualize all interconnections.
Map traffic flows across SDN in seconds
Dynamically map hundreds of live application paths hop by hop through the Cisco ACI fabric as well as non-SDN infrastructure. One-click historical analysis compares how traffic flowed at any given point in the past.
Quickly decode overlay/underlay dependencies
With one click, decipher SDN’s layers of abstraction and virtualization overlaid on top of the underlying infrastructure. Automatically built views decode network design, regardless of technology, and instantly locate the logical structure.
Bring data from all tools onto a single map
Toggle on/off any virtually any network information available from the SDN controller, CLI/SNMP, or other NMS tools (24×7 monitoring, ticketing system, NetFlow analyzer, etc.). Quickly decode SDN design, see traditional routing configs, or correlate monitoring alerts.
Automate critical diagnostics
No need to pull in app or server teams to troubleshoot SDN. Without leaving the map, any engineer can run automated diagnostics across physical and virtual environments. Just point and click to analyze hundreds of potential issues in seconds.
Give everyone the know-how to tackle SDN
Empower everyone on the team to take on SDN with confidence. Document your experts’ tribal knowledge — the subject matter expertise that otherwise lives only inside their heads — and make it executable through Runbooks for seamless operational hand-offs.
Trigger diagnostics before a human responds
As soon as an issue is detected in the SDN environment, NetBrain kicks into action to automatically map the problem area and run diagnostics. You don’t even have to be around — all results will be waiting for you right on the map.
Go from reactive to proactive
Resolve the problem even faster next time by “closing the loop” in your troubleshooting workflow. Proactively monitor for now-known problems elsewhere. And enhance your event-triggered diagnostics to incorporate post-mortem lessons learned.
