OpsRamp is rolling out two new solutions: OpsRamp NetFlow monitoring, which delivers deep analysis of network traffic, and OpsRamp Unified Communications monitoring, for detailed analysis of voice and collaboration data.

NetFlow (developed by Cisco) is a protocol used by IT professionals to determine the point of origin, destination, volume and paths of traffic on a network.

“As work-from-home became the new normal in 2020, use of digital communications and collaboration systems exploded,” said Ciaran Byrne, VP of Product Management at OpsRamp. “IT Operations teams need distinct capabilities for maintaining uptime and user productivity for the new suite of tools and network topologies running businesses today.”

The OpsRamp NetFlow Monitoring solution allows IT Ops pros to do modeling and predictive analysis of flow data collected from servers and network devices. The solution delivers real-time diagnosis of network latency across WAN links to identify “top talkers” (source, destination, protocols, apps) impacting users and business services. OpsRamp NetFlow can also generate alerts based on network traffic utilization, and IT pros can get insights into network utilization patterns to aid in capacity planning or post-incident analysis. The OpsRamp NetFlow Monitoring solution covers the following protocols: V9, V5, IPFIX, S-FLOW, J-FLOW.

The OpsRamp UC Monitoring solution provides IT Ops pros a deep analysis of user communication (voice, SMS, video, chat) collected from UC systems such as Cisco and Avaya and cloud collaboration systems such as Zoom. IT Ops pros can view real-time diagnosis of communications data to quickly identify issues affecting users and receive alerts based on service degradations. Users can generate rich analysis of voice data for improved capacity planning, troubleshooting and post-incident investigations.

“Our network and UC monitoring solutions can support the largest enterprises and MSPs, with coverage of the top flow protocols and the UC systems in the market today,” says Byrne. “These offerings are a logical step for OpsRamp, furthering our mission to offer the most comprehensive, automated and integrated platform for digital operations management.”

OpsRamp NetFlow Monitoring and OpsRamp UC Monitoring are integrated into the OpsRamp platform to deliver unified IT operations visibility.

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 ...
