Cisco Network Analysis Module provides full application layer visibility and proactive, real-time monitoring capabilities.

As an enterprise network grows in size, complexity, and the number of demanding applications it supports, managing application performance also grows in importance. Cisco IT uses the Cisco Network Analysis Module (NAM), sitting in a well-chosen Cisco Catalyst switch, to gather real-time and historical data on host and network and application traffic, including traffic analysis, port monitoring, application and virtual LAN monitoring, and voice quality and packet capture and decoding.

This network management case study describes how Cisco IT first deployed the NAM and shows how Cisco IT:

  • Identifies network traffic problems
  • Identifies application malfunctions
  • Predicts and prevents problems before they occur through performance trending analysis
