Critical traffic may never leave the rack

The migration to blade chassis-based virtual servers has created a new blind spot in the enterprise: the traffic between virtual servers in the same blade chassis. This “invisible traffic” never crosses any network segment where it can be easily captured. As a result, engineers have little or no visibility into the traffic among virtual servers.

Invisible Traffic

“Invisible traffic” is a problem for any data center team trying to troubleshoot, optimize, or secure its virtual server operations. You can’t tune what you can’t see. And with enterprises virtualizing more and more of their data center operations, the size of this blind spot is destined only to grow.

OmniVirtual is a lightweight traffic-capture service that enables IT engineers to capture and analyze traffic on virtual servers.

OmniVirtual eliminates the blind spot created by invisible traffic. It enables data center engineers to use the powerful analysis features and graphical charts of the OmniPeek analyzer to troubleshoot, optimize, benchmark, and secure virtual servers and virtual applications.

A Small Service that Shows the Big Picture

OmniVirtual is a small, lightweight service that runs on any Windows XP or Windows 2003 virtual server. It consumes minimal RAM and CPU resources, so you can troubleshoot, optimize, and secure virtual applications without compromising server performance.

When other virtual management tools report problems, get to the root cause by capturing traffic with OmniVirtual.

Take advantage of the OmniPeek Enterprise network analyzer’s full suite of post-capture analysis tools, including Peer Map, Expert event reporting, Apdex application performance measurements, and more.
