In this 30 min. on-demand webcast you will learn about the concepts noted below and see a live demo showing how Visual TruView tackles Capacity Planning in just a few mouse clicks:
-Understand Bandwidth Resources and Performance Tradeoffs – Bad performance does not necessarily mean that bandwidth is not sufficient. Knowing how busy links are, and for how long,is key to gauging the correlation between bandwidth and performance.
-Use the Right Tools for the Job – Trying to detect over-utilization of bandwidth can be difficult when the tools are not well suited to the job. The key questions to answer are, has the link been over-utilized, for how long, and by what application and what end-user?
-Account for Business Hours – Having a combination of real-time and back-in-time views allows IT to see what is happening more quickly, solve problems faster, and move on to more strategic initiatives efficiently.
-Determine if is Bandwidth Being Used for Business? – There are two types of traffic, business and recreational. Obviously, business has priority, so it is important to know why a busy link is busy. Is it usage of a business application? Is it the breaking news story everyone is streaming to the desktop? Even if it is a business application causing congestion, does that application really need to consume that much bandwidth?
-Streamline the Process – With networks growing quickly, the job of understanding what links are busy, when and why, gets more complex and time consuming. The amount of time taken to perform proactive capacity planning is the main reason why the job does not get done
