Advanced Flow Slicing

Intelligently slice flows to reduce traffic sent to tools.

Forward the First Set of Packets, then Slice or Drop the Rest

Inspecting long data flows hogs bandwidth and causes unnecessary processing burden on tools. (A flow is HTTP session or any general TCP/UDP session.)

GigaSMART® Advanced Flow Slicing application eliminates these issues by slicing  payloads and packets from long data flow. This allows network operation teams and service providers to forward the first set of packets in the flow, then slice or drop the rest — saving your bandwidth and increasing tool effectiveness.

Benefits of Advanced Flow Slicing:

  • Reduces traffic sent to tools by more than 60% 
  • Avoids costly tool upgrades to inspect unnecessary traffic
  • Improves overall tool efficiency and effectiveness
  • Retains complete visibility into each flow’s establishment

Advanced Flow Slicing is now part of our Gigamon NetVUE for Network Operations bundle.

How It Works

GigaSMART Advanced Flow Slicing reduces traffic sent to tools​ using a two-step intelligent slicing method:

  1. You decide the first number of packets in a flow to analyze
  2. Then either drop or slice subsequent packets in that flow
