It all starts with NerveCenter’s unique architecture, which sets it apart from other IT Operations management products. Driven by Finite State Machine architecture, NerveCenter can do things other products by definition just cannot do.
NerveCenter™ uses a successful finite state/ behavioral modeling technique uniquely to provide complex event processing (CEP) and advanced analytics for event management and avoidance.
NerveCenter automatically discovers significant behavior patterns from massive traffic data by applying the behavior classification on backbone links and analyzing their temporal properties. This scheme is robust and consistent in capturing behavior similarities among significant clusters. Such similarities provide useful insight in communication patterns of end hosts and applications.
Most IT operations and systems monitoring solutions are developed as “one size fits all.” They are built to handle the common monitoring use cases that will face the majority of IT operations. They typically will listen for traps and do some basic polling and apply some elemental correlation. We at LogMatrix consider this to cover 80% of the monitoring requirements of a unique, complex network.
Network complexity creates other monitoring requirements. These requirements are not likely to be single threaded and will be complex issues that require historical knowledge and tie in multiple operational aspects and information from your environment. They are unique to your environment and operating procedures and policies. They are outside the 80% serviced by most network monitoring solutions; these requirements are the 20% gap.
Through its use of behavioral models, NerveCenter is uniquely capable of satisfying the requirements of the 20% gap.
