SD-WAN Monitoring Tool

Monitoring SD-WAN networks before, after & during migrations

5 stars
5 stars

“For our SD-WAN migration, we installed Obkio Monitoring Agents in all our factories across North America. This allowed us to be proactive in solving network problems. Obkio is a very powerful tool for diagnosing network issues. It’s just as effective for monitoring Internet issues on the underlay as for monitoring VPN Quality on the overlay. I highly recommend this product!”

75% of IT pros struggle with the native monitoring features of SD-WAN

& traditional monitoring tools don’t offer the depth needed for modern WAN networks.

With businesses increasingly moving to the Cloud, and migrating from MPLS to hybrid WAN architectures and SD-WAN networks - you need to be ready.

Monitor SD-WAN Migrations

It’s easier to track decreasing costs, but not as easy to track decreasing performance.

When taking on an SD-WAN migration, you expect diminishing WAN service costs, but no one expects to have worse performance than before. The only way to ensure that your performance doesn't degrade is to compare performance before, during and after the migration.

Use Obkio to test results during the proof-of-concept, and for quality control during the migration for each branch.

SD-WAN Network Monitoring

Legacy monitoring tools and the few monitoring features included in your SD-WAN solution don’t provide the level of visibility needed for monitoring your end-to-end network infrastructure.

  • Monitoring Sessions measure network performance between any two points in your network.

  • Performance Metrics provide vital data on the health of your network.

  • Dynamic Thresholds trigger alerts for latency, jitter, packet loss, packet reordering & duplication, MOS score.

  • Proactive Alerts identify events that affect network quality before they affect end-user experience.

  • Smart Notifications reduce notification overload and emphasize important events.

SD-WAN Network Troubleshooting

Obkio is more than a monitoring solution. We troubleshoot SD-WAN problems too.

Obkio’s intuitive dashboards show all your data at a glance to identify what is being affected, whether it’s the underlay (Internet connection, ISP network), the overlay (VPN through different destinations), or the device itself (bandwidth, CPU).

Leverage Obkio' Visual Traceroutes to identify where, how and when SD-WAN problems happened and share the data with your Service Provider for immediate resolutions.

Measure the SD-WAN Promise

SD-WAN vendors usually make two promises:

  1. The capacity of the SD-WAN device to seamlessly perform load balancing on multiple links.

  2. The ability of the SD-WAN management platform to provide visibility on the network performance.

It's up to you to ensure that your vendor upholds the promises they made for your SD-WAN performance.

Obkio's Agent is installed in the customer LAN, behind the SD-WAN appliance, to ensure it does its job from the end-user's point-of-view. And while SD-WAN vendors usually monitor performance from edge-to-edge, Obkio monitors from end-to-end, which makes all the difference.

Obkio monitors with detail the capacity of the device to perform load balancing on multiple links

Frequently Asked Questions

What is SD-WAN Monitoring? Icon Grey Arrow Up Icon Grey Arrow Down

SD-WAN Monitoring is the continuous monitoring of your SD-WAN network from the end-user perspective, by class of service, to locate network problems affecting your SD-WAN network performance.

How does Obkio monitor your SD-WAN network? Icon Grey Arrow Up Icon Grey Arrow Down

Obkio monitors the real performance of your SD-WAN network from the end-user perspective, by class of service, to find and fix issues quickly. Obkio monitors the impact of your SD-WAN network by injecting synthetic traffic to monitor from the end-user perspective.

Why is SD-WAN monitoring important? Icon Grey Arrow Up Icon Grey Arrow Down

Businesses are increasingly moving to cloud-based apps, which increases reliance on the Internet to deliver WAN traffic. As a result, businesses are migrating from MPLS to hybrid WAN architectures and SD-WAN technology. Monitoring your SD-WAN network ensures that everything on your network is working as it should be.

What's the difference between Obkio and other tools? Icon Grey Arrow Up Icon Grey Arrow Down

Most traditional monitoring tools don’t offer the depth and visibility needed for modern WAN networks. Obkio is a monitoring tool that monitors continuous, end-to-end performance, including SD-WAN, using synthetic traffic to monitor from the end-user perspective.
