About the Hardware Network Monitoring Agent

The Network Monitoring Agent is a unique software that we've developed to help you seamlessly measure network and application performance and availability.

Obkio’s Network Performance Monitoring Solution works by deploying physical or software network performance monitoring Agents at strategic locations in a company's offices or network destinations such as data sites, remote sites, external client sites, or public or private clouds.

There are four types of Performance Monitoring Agents available to you: Software, Hardware, Public Agent & Virtual Appliance. They all have the same features, but come in different forms to make your deployment as easy as possible.

When you’re looking into what type of Agent you need to monitor network performance, ask yourself: Do I have a server to host the software?

If you have a server to host the Software Agent, you’re all set! You can just download our Software Agents and run the application on your computer. We also have a Virtual Appliance that has been built in a Vmware environment.

If you don't have a server to host the software, don’t worry! We’ve got the Obkio Hardware Agent for you.

The Benefits of Hardware Agents

Our Hardware Agents are designed to help you monitor network performance in a way that best suits your needs. Leverage features like:

  • No Virtual Environments Needed: Obkio’s Hardware are usually deployed in branches offices where there are no servers available to run Software or Virtual Appliance Agents.

  • No Configuration Required: Setting up your Hardware Agent is easy - it's a plug-and-play device and no configuration is required on the device All you need is the small hardware appliance (which you can purchase from the Obkio Store) and two cables to plug (Ethernet & Power). With DHCP enabled, the device automatically will provision from the Cloud.

  • The Same Features as Other Agents: All our monitoring agents have the same features available to you! So even if your office can’t support a Software agent, Obkio’s Hardware monitoring agent offers you all the same features, with easy deployment.

  • Monitor Performance in the Obkio App: Once your Hardware agent is set up, simply add it to the Obkio app using the serial number and you’re ready to go. Continuously monitor network performance from wherever your Hardware Agent is installed, and see metrics, data, and network alerts right on your Obkio dashboard.
