Power your core and edge visibility nodes.

Visibility operating system

GigaVUE-OS powers the core and edge visibility nodes in the Gigamon Visibility and Analytics Fabric. Proven in the most demanding Fortune 5000 enterprise, government agency and large service provider environments, GigaVUE-OS provides the reliability required to help ensure accurate visibility into infrastructure blind spots. Built on a Linux kernel, it allows administrators to rapidly select traffic flows of interest and apply advanced traffic intelligence using GigaSMART® applications.

GigaVUE-OS provides active visibility services, including Flow Mapping®, Clustering, GigaStream®, Automatic Network Discovery and Inline Bypass.


Simplify Your Monitoring and Security Architecture

GigaVUE-OS provides the necessary APIs to integrate with GigaVUE-FM, giving users a single pane of glass to seamlessly manage all GigaVUE-OS nodes. The breadth of the Gigamon portfolio coupled with the feature richness of GigaVUE-OS allow operators to get the best of reach, scale, cost and intelligence with a common software and operational model across the entire monitoring and security infrastructure.

GigaVUE OS is a modular operating system that offers:

  • Patented Flow Mapping® technology: Select traffic flows of interest with precision
  • Clustering: Combine multiple heterogeneous devices and manage as one logical node. Allows utilization of capabilities of other nodes within the cluster
  • Portable design: Scales from commodity white box hardware to intelligent, core nodes
  • Multiple management methods: Fabric Manager, web-based interface (H-VUE), SNMP and CLI
  • Fabric Maps (included with Fabric Manager): Enable Flow Mapping across clusters to scale network visibility across hundreds of nodes
  • L2GRE and VXLAN tunnel encapsulation and decapsulation: Provide network traffic visibility into cloud and remote sites for tools in the cloud and on-premises. This feature is supported on all HC Series and TA Series except on the TA1, TA10 and HD Series.
  • Classic Inline and Flex Inline provide asymmetric hashing and directed traffic within Inline Tool Group. These enable expanded deployment options and improved tool integration.
  • Replicate and/or distribute traffic across multiple NPM, APM, security and CEM tools based on a programmable rule engine
  • Combine core capabilities in GigaVUE-OS with GigaSMART® traffic intelligence to maximize performance and ROI from tools
  • Create a security-focused Gigamon Visibility and Analytics Fabric that enables the deployment of inline, out-of-band and flow-based tools across the network infrastructure
