Network Instruments announced the latest version of its Observer performance management platform, with new features to help network managers streamline the process of migration, management and troubleshooting of services in multi-layered and virtual environments.

In addition, the platform provides end-to-end support for tracking the flow of control and data services across high-speed LTE networks to give mobile carriers shifting to IP-based networks, complete visibility across all points of their LTE infrastructure, from the tower to the core.

New Observer Performance Management Platform features include:

- Application Dependency Maps: Auto-discovers and maps application components

- Performance Matrices: Identifies if application issues are enterprise-wide or impact specific groups

- Multi-GigaStor Analysis: Combines and analyzes data across multiple GigaStor units

- Global Search: Flexible search engine interface gathers relevant data from many sources

- Performance Correlations: Assess relationships between multiple variables for problem resolution

- Mobile Communications Support: Evaluates LTE network access and service performance

- Native IPv6 Communications: All Network Instruments solutions natively communicate in IPv6

“Whether through cloud or virtual environments, IT professionals must assess a myriad of information to diagnose root causes and immediately troubleshoot to ensure mission-critical services operate at peak performance,” said Charles Thompson, Director of Product Strategy for Network Instruments. “The new features in Observer allow enterprise network teams, and now mobile carriers, better access to review this complex information in easy-to-view formats, so they can see correlations in a single-view and make actionable decisions based on that information.”

One of the key performance indicators for IT Ops is MTTR (Mean-Time-To-Resolution). MTTR essentially measures the length of your incident management lifecycle: from detection; through assignment, triage and investigation; to remediation and resolution. IT Ops teams strive to shorten their incident management lifecycle and lower their MTTR, to meet their SLAs and maintain healthy infrastructures and services. But that's often easier said than done, with incident triage being a key factor in that challenge ...
