Complete visibility of data center networks requires viewing traffic at multiple monitoring points. While this increases overall visibility, duplicate traffic can overload network monitoring tools and effect reporting. Removing duplicate traffic improves monitoring tool efficiency, accuracy, and recording space requirements. This enables monitoring tools to provide greater visibility while lowering overall costs.
Solution: Packet Deduplication
Port-based deduplication is included in the IntellaFlex Multi-Function blade and IntellaStore II Appliance. It is a selectable feature that provides a standard level of packet deduplication prior to sending data to the monitoring tools, and includes configurable duplicate match criteria. Port-based deduplication provides an integrated cost effective solution for standard monitoring deployments.
Packet Processor Advanced Deduplication
The HyperEngine Packet Processor Blade provides dedicated packet processing for advanced high-speed deduplication of multiple traffic streams up to 200 Gbps, and supports a large match window size up to 500ms. HyperEngine Packet Processor Blade deduplication is fully configurable, with point and click selection to include or ignore packet fields such as the packet time to live (TTL) or header checksum.
