The Network Performance Monitoring Agent

Introduce a key player to your team

Think of the Agent as your Network Admin

Our Agent is unique software that we've developed to help you seamlessly measure network and application performance and availability

There are four types of Performance Monitoring Agents available to you

  • Software (Linux & Windows 10)
  • Hardware
  • Public
  • Virtual Appliance (Hyper-V & VMware)

All Agents offer the same features, to ensure easy and fast deployment, to meet your monitoring needs.

Our Agents also include Public Monitoring Agents that are managed by Obkio and partners, in trusted public clouds such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud.

The Agent is software that we have developed to measure network and application performance and availability. Four types of Agents are available and all of them have the same features. This makes sure the deployment is easy no matter where you want to increase visibility and monitor performance. This includes Public Monitoring Agents that are managed by Obkio in public clouds such as AWS, Azure and Google Cloud.

Network Monitoring Agent Visibility from End-User Perspective
Visibility from End-User Perspective

By running performance tests directly from Head & Branch offices, the Agents measure network and application performance as if they were actual users. The exact location inside the network may change depending on the network architecture. In some cases the Agent is installed next to the firewall to monitor ISP performance (WAN) and in other cases at the far-end of the LAN network to have a complete end-to-end performance monitoring solution.

Usually, Agents are installed at the same place where users (Head & Branch offices) and IT infrastructure (Data centers & Cloud environments) are located. In most cases, only one agent is required by location but many can be installed on large campuses to gain more visibility. Once installed, Agents receive their configuration and software updates from our Cloud platform without any user interaction. Making monitoring easy is our Agent's number one priority.

Network Monitoring Agent Distributed deployment
Distributed deployment

Now, Enterprises using SaaS and Cloud service that are no longer hosted in a centralized location. This new architecture increase the pressure on IT teams to correctly and accurately monitor the performance and availability of services from all of their locations. To simplify the process, our Agents execute tests from all your connected locations to provide a more distributed monitoring solution, compared to traditional centralized monitoring solutions.

Network Monitoring Agent Continuous Monitoring
Continuous Monitoring

Whether you're using them for Network Performance Monitoring (NPM) or Application Performance Monitoring (APM), our Agents are always working hard. With continuous monitoring, our Agent offers users more visibility on performance issues that are often intermittent and hard to pin-point. Immediately be notified when there is an issue or check out previous performance data to understand what happened after an incident.

Network Monitoring Agent Zero Impact
Zero Impact

Since the Agents are not in-line in the network but installed as endpoint devices, their installation and use does not affect IT operations. Apart from speed tests that are fully configurable, Agents do not perform stress tests on the network or applications. Performance tests performed by the Agent simulate normal use of a single user, which means there is no impact whatsoever on IT operations. Furthermore, the installation does not require any port mirroring or traffic capture which could cause privacy or confidentiality concerns.
