cPacket Networks announced the cVu 3240NG, which delivers 32 ports of 40G line-rate performance analytics and complete packet inspection.

This Network Performance Monitoring and Diagnostic (NPMD) solution delivers real-time analysis at 40G line rate per port.

The cVu appliances are the basis of cPacket’s Intelligent Monitoring Fabric, which combines network visibility with packet-level troubleshooting details on-demand. This allows customers to proactively monitor their network for problems such as traffic spikes, bottlenecks, losses, applications’ misbehavior, and other anomalies – before end-users are negatively impacted. The integrated solution delivers comprehensive situational awareness, as well as unified access to real-time search across the entire network, and detailed packet-based forensic investigation, for unmatched operational intelligence.

cPacket also added gap detection as a feature to its Intelligent Monitoring Fabric. For example, when targeted at financial services, gap detection identifies missing packets at critical market feeds for equity pricing. These gaps correlate with missing data that prevents investors from making profitable trading decisions. Historically, detecting such problems was after-the-fact (vs. real-time) and required expensive specialized tools. cPacket’s integrated gap-detection feature identifies the telltale signs of imminent issues in real-time, and eliminates the expensive troubleshooting process after-the-fact. The integrated visibility allows system administrators to identify exactly where a gap occurred, and provides immediate access to “evidence” based on automatic capture of the specific packets before and after the event.

The cVu 3240NG is available beginning March 15. A 24-port version, the cVu 2440NG, is also available.
