Fluke Networks’ Network Time Machine version 8 accelerates problem solving

51029-hi-NetworkTimeMachineJuly 13, 2011Fluke Networks has announced a new version of its leading Network Time Machine™, with new capabilities that make it the first* all-in-one, plug-and-play appliance that provides both instant identification of network versus server problems and root cause analysis of network and application problems.
The new features in version 8 incorporate the Fluke Networks’ proprietary visual fault domain isolation technology that graphically identifies where problems exist, while continuing to provide 100 per cent stream-to-disk capabilities with deep packet inspection at rates greater than 10 Gbps for more detailed analysis in a single appliance.

Wayne Allen, program manager, Fluke Networks, said, “The number one question network professionals tell Fluke Networks they need answered in troubleshooting scenarios is whether the issue is with the server or the network.

“Version 8 takes the Network Time Machine platform’s performance to the next level by answering this question in a fraction of the time, and by doing so in the form of a single, simple appliance that does not require multiple servers, complex deployment scenarios and continuous configuration and maintenance.”

In addition to instantly identifying server versus network problems, the new user interface features user-configurable dashboards that automatically identify and display key performance metrics with instant drill-down capability into root cause analysis. 

The software, a free upgrade for existing customers with an active support agreement, is available immediately.
