Effective troubleshooting

Up to 16x faster mean-time-to resolution of performance issues. Leverage the analytical view for decisive L2-L7insights.

Cross-Environment visibility

On-premise, edge, and cloud under one visibility umbrella. Advanced performance monitoring and diagnostics across all your environments and applications.

30 minutes to deploy

From zero to actionable data on the dashboard in 30 minutes. Use presets and predefined dashboards for automatic configuration or create your own to shape the tool to your specific needs.

Broad vs. deep visibility

Network monitoring is not infrastructure monitoring. Technologies built around SNMP do an excellent job telling you that some network element is in trouble, but to actually discover why the issue exists, you need actionable data and deep network traffic visibility.

But that doesn't mean it has to be one or the other. It's a good idea to build the overall picture of your infrastructure's health and availability with SNMP monitoring and switch to dedicated network traffic monitoring whenever you need solid insights on the root cause of issues. Plus, with the visibility Kemp Flowmon provides, you will be able to discover problems that SNMP solutions ignore completely.
