Introduction

The Cisco Network Analysis Module 4.2 software enables network managers to understand, manage, and improve how applications and services are delivered to end users.

The NAM offers flow-based traffic analysis of applications, hosts, and conversations, performance-based measurements on application, server, and network latency, quality of experience metrics for network-based services such as voice over IP (VoIP) and video, and problem analysis using deep, insightful packet captures.

The Cisco NAM includes an embedded, web-based Traffic Analyzer GUI that provides quick access to the configuration menus and presents easy-to-read performance reports on web for different types of services and traffic including voice and video, response time, and network flow-based reports.
