This means every device on your network, and every interface on every device is automatically analyzed for performance, errors, QoS, and configuration.
TotalView collects and analyzes 19 error counters on every interface. This means we know when, where, and why packets are lost, buffered, or mis-handled anywhere in the environment.
You’re responsible for the entire infrastructure — you should have visibility to match.
Total Network Visibility®
Knowing that your cloud services are working well is important for next-generation monitoring.
If you don’t know what’s causing problems, you’re working in the dark.
We can alert on the overall performance to cloud services as well as disclose the route tree used to reach the services so root-causes of performance problems can be easily identified.
Knowing where the problem is happening leads to faster resolution.
Cloud Service Monitoring
Troubleshooting SD‐WAN connections can be difficult due to the SD‐WAN controllers not showing the complete picture of what is happening on each individual link and path. Our SD‐WAN monitoring can help shed light on what’s happening with each link and show the full route tree that connects to each
endpoint as well as what occurred along that path.
Configurable alerts permit knowing about problems with latency, loss, outages, and route changes.
If you can rapidly identify who is using your bandwidth and what they are doing, you can make sure that business critical resources are used appropriately.
Our NetFlow capability permits an unlimited number of interfaces to be added to monitoring. This means you never lose visibility due to a license limitation.
Mysterious network slowdowns won’t go un‐diagnosed.
Digging through your network to try to find where something is connected shouldn’t be a chore. With just one view, you can see what’s connected to switch ports including CDP/LLDP information, MAC addresses, manufacturers, IP address, and DNS entries.
It’s equally easy to search for a device and instantly discover where it’s connected to the network.
Never trace a cable again.
With a single picture, you can see how your network is connected. The diagram is automatically generated so you don’t have to worry about updating it.
It’s flexible and interactive so you can move elements around and lock them in place so you can have a static or dynamic view of the environment.
The days of manually updating network diagrams is over
Automatic Interactive Network Diagram
Want to find out what happened between two IP endpoints at a certain time?
Our industry-leading path mapper will tell you what happened on all involved links, switches, and routers used to pass traffic between any two IP addresses at any point in time. This means you can solve problems that happened 5 minutes ago, 5 hours ago, or 5 days ago from one easy-to-disseminate report.
You never have to tell a user “I don’t know what happened”.
TotalView’s Dynamic Network Map shows a live look into utilization and availability in your environment.
Links and devices are checked every 5 seconds for status and usage so you’ll have a very up‐to‐date picture of what’s happening on your network.
If a link changes status or a device becomes unreachable, an alarm will sound so you know something happened. A glance at the map tells you exactly what occurred so you will never get caught having a user know about an outage before you do.
This is perfect for a NOC monitoring screen.

Want to know what happened 20 minutes ago in the New York network?
Our built‐in correlation engine can quickly narrow down and tell you all the events that occurred in that location at that time. Interfaces or devices that changed status, as well as packet loss or utilization spikes that occurred.
Troubleshooting mysterious gremlins has never been easier.
Built‐in Correlation Engine
TotalView automatically generates an inventory of all network devices. Including:
• Model number
• Serial number
• OS firmware version
• OS software, version
• Hardware manufacture date
• Internal description

If you don’t know what’s happening with STP, you’re eventually going to have unhappy users. Everyone has heard the story of a user that “just plugged something in” and the network went haywire.
If you knew what happened, and where, you could fix it.
Spanning‐Tree Stability Monitoring
TotalView is the only product that includes the ability to enter a simple English question and the system will answer it. Entering: “What happened between 10.0.2.12 and 172.16.4.36 20 minutes ago?” will do an analysis of all involved links, switches, and routers used to connect those two IP addresses to tell your team a simple answer that the Finance2 switch interface #2 was dropping 12% of its packets at
that time due to a cabling fault.
You no longer have to find the right report to answer a question – just type it in plain‐English.
Natural Language Troubleshooting
When someone says “The Internet is down”, it means that a number of problems could actually be occurring.
If local or remote DNS is not responding, people might see it as an Internet outage. If your link to the Internet is up, but an upstream connection is down, you might not have any visibility into this problem.
This one report show you the status and health of all elements required for reliable Internet
Internet Health Report
Don’t be satisfied with last-decade’s monitoring solution that takes 5-10 seconds to see a page build.
TotalView uses a fully RESTful JSON API and in-memory database capabilities to provide lightning-fast web browsing.
This means you can quickly find and resolve problems and aren’t stuck slogging through pages that take multiple seconds to build.
Quick responses = quick resolutions.
Highly Responsive User Interface
A single shared or virtual machine can monitor networks as large as 100,000 interfaces*. Any version of Windows (server OS or desktop OS), 4GB of RAM, and 20GB of storage space are all we need.
• We don’t need a webserver.
• We don’t need a separate database.
• We don’t need .NET.
• We don’t need Java.
Such a light footprint system takes less support and monitoring – it just works.
* Over 200,000 interfaces supported with a single physical server.
Highly Scalable Lightweight Footprint
Instead of taking weeks to months to deploy, our typical deployment and auto‐configuration is complete in 12 minutes.
Spend your time improving the network instead of endlessly configuring monitoring tools.
TotalView can automatically reconfigure itself in response to changes in your network. Adding new devices takes just a few minutes with the QuickConfig Wizard, and they all are automatically covered under your global alerts.
Less configuration effort and more automation means that your team spends more time proactively fixing network problems. It also has less chance of lost visibility due to misconfigurations or forgotten settings.
Spend your time improving the network, not configuring the solution.
Rapid Configuration & Reconfiguration
TotalView is logically laid out so anyone in the IT organization can quickly get access to the right information and fix problems.
This enables the Help Desk and Telecom teams to resolve more problems (many with first call resolution). This prevents escalation of issues to the senior level network engineers who can now be isolated from tickets so they can focus on strategic initiatives.
Natural Language Troubleshooting is built-in.
Your entire team can now operate at a higher level because they have access to the right information on your network and can easily interpret the results.
Ease of Use
The daily Network Weather Report™ is sent out so the team can know what issues exist and what problems are developing so they can be worked on proactively each morning.
Additional customized reports can be sent to appropriate people to keep them aware of their environment: MOS Reports, Interface usage reports, Transmitters, Errors, and many others.
With more awareness of your environment, you won’t get caught off‐guard by users having problems – you’ll be finishing the fix before your users even notice a problem.
TotalView has a deep understanding of network health no matter what modern or legacy equipment powers your network.
As long as SNMP is supported, we can automatically dig into the device and tell you what it knows.
Additional included capabilities:
• Full alerting capability via email/syslog
• Built‐in TFTP server
• Fully‐integrated Syslog server
• Reporting Engine for custom reports
• Natural Language Troubleshooting
• Spanning-Tree Monitoring
• Full CDP/LLDP associations
You no longer need to research what it means when you see FCS errors combined with Alignment errors.
Our Network Prescription™ engine analyzes error counters and configuration to produce plain‐English answers for rapid remediation.
This is what root‐cause troubleshooting is all about.
TotalView automatically collects and analyzes 19 error counters, configuration, performance, and QoS on every interface. Anywhere and anytime a packet is dropped, buffered, or mis‐routed on the network, you can see what went wrong.
No more searching through haystacks for needles – we tell you what your network already knows about problems.
Getting tons of alerts is never fun, and doesn’t lead to quick recognition of the problem.
TotalView has intelligent alerting that allows to you assign parent-child relationships and also easily assign global alerts that cover the entire organization, or only a group, or device, or specific interface.
This means configuring alerts is very quick and easy, and the alerting automatically covers any newly added devices in the infrastructure or group.
