Talari appliances deployed in the main office and branches/remote offices are fully managed by Talari's advanced APN management application. Additionally, a complete view of APN network usage and quality is presented to the user in graphical and tabular views. For enterprises using 3rd party network management systems, Talari supports industry standard management interfaces such as SNMP.
Network Health Assessment and Display
Talari's network management application continuously monitors the health of the APN network paths and measures IP performance metrics. Network statistics and measurement results are collected in real-time, aggregated at multiple levels and displayed to the user. Observed protocols, as well as statistics on each of them are also available to the user.
Performance Reports produce graphical views reflecting network performance and activity. Possible reports include: Conduit and Path Latency, Quality, Packet Loss and Bandwidth use between APN nodes.
QoS Reports allow the user to select a site, WAN link, path or conduit to display a stacked area chart showing used bandwidth for various types of traffic such as real-time or bulk.
Usage Reports display used bandwidth for Conduit, Intranet and Internet services for each WAN link.
Availability Reports provide aggregated statistics on status of APN network paths, conduits and WAN links allowing the administrator to assess the functioning status of the network.
Appliance Reports offers the user the option to generate numerous appliance-specific system and network statistical reports.
