Monitor all network segments from end-users to clouds and all network locations
Software & Hardware Monitoring Agents
The Monitoring Agent is the key compotent in Obkio's application to monitor, measure, and troubleshoot network and application performance and availability. Deploy Agents in every network location to monitor performance.
To overcome the limitations of traditional centralized monitoring solutions when monitoring modern network architectures (cloud, SaaS, SD-WAN), Obkio uses a distributed monitoring strategy to monitor the real end-user experience.
Monitor your local network (LAN, VPN), as well as third-party networks (WAN, ISP, and Internet Peering).
You only need 1 Monitoring Agent per location to monitor performance! Deploy for your head office, data center, cloud, branch office, and remote users.
Built for Simplicity
Networks are complex, monitoring tools don't have to be. Obkio was designed to be simple to use to help support overloaded IT teams with network monitoring.
Leverage Network Monitoring templates to easily define monitoring sessions between different ends of your network.
Measure key network performance metrics
Network Performance Metrics
Obkio understands and measures the performance metrics that matter most. Synthetic traffic is used to monitor key network metrics, which ensures complete security and privacy, with no packet capture required.
Obkio continuously measures core network performance metrics between Monitoring Agents every 500ms.
Measure VoIP Quality using MOS score to monitor the perceived quality of VoIP calls.
Run advanced On-Demand and Scheduled Speed Tests to test your upload and download speeds over your Internet connection.
Monitor performance metrics for each class of service using DSCP codes.
Network Device Monitoring (SNMP)
Monitor the performance of network devices with SNMP Device Monitoring such as firewalls, routers, switches and wifi access points using SNMP polling.
Quickly detect intermittent network problems caused by high CPU usage. Get a clear picture of your device's CPU performance.
Monitor bandwdith usage and errors for all network device interfaces, including short bursts of traffic that can cause congestion.
No technical expertise in SNMP, OIDs or MIBs is required. Add the device that you wish to monitor and the software will get what it needs.
With Ultra-Fast Polling (every 30 seconds), the results provide 10x more precision than traditional software polling, which occurs every 5 minutes.
Network Path Discovery and Analysis
To monitor performance and identify network issues in your Service Provider's network, Traceroutes are your only option. Monitor the route path to identify where a network issue is located.
Live Traceroutes actively identify and troubleshoot current network problems. Share Live Traceroute results with ISPs for quick troubleshooting.
Compare multiple traceroutes, draw a network map, analyze traceroutes for route change detection, and visualize exactly where problems are located using a quality score algorithm.
The Internet is asymmetrical, so problems can occur on the reverse path. That's why Obkio runs traceroutes from each end to catch problems from whatever direction.
Pinpoint where network problems are located
Highlight Network Issues
Obkio troubleshoots network problems by monitoring, analyzing, highlighting and showing you where exactly real-time and past intermittent network problems are located.
Intermittent network problems hide behind average measurements. To show what's wrong in your network, Obkio highlights even the smallest network degradation.
Obkio's signature Chord Diagram provides a single visual overview of global network performance. Start from the Chord Diagram, and drilldown into historical performance details.
By storing months of historical data, Obkio makes it easy to troubleshoot intermittent or past network issues.
Obkio interprets core network metrics to represent the true effect on an end-user and monitor QoE (Quality of Experience).
Obkio detects packet duplication and packet reordering, and tests QoS DSCP propagation.
Obkio sends Smart Notifications (which groups events together) to reduce notification overload and emphasize important events. Receive notifications by email or integrate with third-party solutions like Pagerduty.
Obkio alerts you about different network events such as session up / session down, latency, jitter, packet loss, packet reordering, packet duplication, MOS score, and much more.
Obkio alerts you of any network issues by measuring network metrics based on advanced Network Monitoring Thresholds that you can adjust.
Features that MSPs love
Use Obkio to monitor multiple network locations for multiple users. View all performance data on one single database, or create seperate dashboards for each user or network location.
Give everyone an overview of your network performance! Add multiple users to your Obkio account and assign them a role to set their permissions inside the App.
Leverage Obkio ISP Auto-Detection to quickly identify ISP issues affecting multiple locations/ customers.
