Product overview

ThousandEyes, the network intelligence SaaS platform, is now integrated into the Cisco Nexus® 9000 Series data center switches with Cisco® NX-OS / Data Center Network Manager (DCNM) and being integrated into Cisco ACI fabrics. The Cisco ThousandEyes Enterprise Agent (TEA) allows users to run a variety of tests using global vantage points to monitor routing (BGP), DNS resolution, browser response characteristics, detailed aspects of network pathing and connectivity, the status of network routing, and VoIP streaming-connection quality.

The integration is across Cisco NX-OS10.2(x), and first supported in Cisco NX-OS 10.2(1) with Cisco DCNM Release 11.5(3).

The following use cases are supported:

     Data center to branches and cloud

    Measure bidirectional network throughput, performance, latency, and loss and evaluate network connections for specific applications

    Path visualization within the WAN and internet for data-center traffic going to branch offices and cloud

     Data-center interconnect

    Deploying the agent on the data center edge device (Cisco Nexus 9000 Series Switches) to communicate with other agents

    Path visualization, latency, loss, and jitter information within the IP network connecting two or more data centers

Cisco ThousandEyes Network Analytics support a wide variety of agents and tests. For this integration into Cisco Nexus 9000 switches, the main focus will be on WAN and internet monitoring, and application evaluation. All visualization of the test results will be achieved using the Cisco ThousandEyes dashboard.
