Application Visualization

Gain visibility into the full breadth of applications across your network.

Application Aware Networking Without the Hassle

Application Visualization is a key component of Gigamon Application Intelligence. Get a complete view of the applications running on your network automatically – no hardwiring ports or writing regular expressions. You can then drill down to see application usage and patterns and the network resources each consumes.

  • Automatically identifies more than 3,500+ common business and consumer applications using deep packet inspection
  • Classifies applications into families to enable actions to be taken on groups of applications
  • Tracks proprietary and custom applications that you designate
  • Recognizes mobile applications running within 5G traffic using GPRS Tunneling Protocol (GTP)
  • Dynamically detects new and modified application signatures and enables immediate downloads and App Intel library updates

Gigamon maintains application awareness — even as current applications change and new applications emerge on the scene.

Application Visualization is offered within both the Application Filtering Intelligence and Application Metadata Intelligence services.

Identify More Applications with Precision

Gigamon Application Visualization identifies more applications, with more precision, enabling you to share this information across your ecosystem of tools.

  • Breadth: Recognizes more than 3,500 common business, IT, mobile, SCADA, ICS and consumer applications
  • Accuracy: Precisely identifies applications using deep packet inspection, not spoofable port numbers
  • Categorization: Automatically classifies applications for easier application traffic management
  • Customization: Lets you add custom and proprietary applications to the list, so these can be tracked as well
  • Simplification: Download signatures anytime with no need to update the GigaVUE® operating system

Application Visualization lets you see what applications are being used or misused across your organization. All without extra work on your part.

GigaSMART Features

GigaSMART® offers a number of other essential traffic intelligence services required for active visibility into infrastructure blind spots, including:

NetFlow Generation

Delivering basic Layer 2–4 network traffic data to analysis tools. 

Source Port Labeling

Provides context to packets and allows tools to properly assess network behavior and threats based on where they are.

Adaptive Packet Filtering

Identifies patterns across any part of the network packet, including the packet payload.


Targets, identifies and eliminates duplicate packets, blocking unnecessary duplication and sending optimized flows.

Packet Slicing

Truncates packets while preserving the portion of the packet (the protocol headers) required for network analysis.

Advanced Load Balancing

Divides and distributes traffic among multiple tools, so network and security visibility can scale.

Advanced Flow Slicing

Eliminates these issues by slicing payloads and packets from long data flow.


Provides customizable data protection by overwriting specific packet fields with a set pattern. 


Alleviates blindness of business-critical traffic at remote sites, virtualized data centers, or hosted in a public cloud.

Application Visualization

Provides a complete view of the applications running on your network automatically.

Application Filtering Intelligence

Extends Layer 7 visibility to thousands of common and proprietary applications.

Application Metadata Intelligence

Empowers your security information and event management and network performance monitoring tools.

GTP Correlation

Enables mobile service providers to monitor subscriber data in GPRS Tunneling Protocol tunnels.

5G Correlation

Intelligently forward subscriber sessions to specific tools by filtering on subscriber, user device, RAN or network slice IDs.

FlowVUE Flow Sampling

Provides subscriber IP-based flow sampling.

SIP/RTP Correlation

Enables enterprises and service providers to monitor VoIP traffic.

SSL/TLS Decryption

Creates a secure channel between the server and the end user's computer or other devices as they exchange information.
