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.
