Network Instruments OBSERVER (SOBS7X) Product Details
Observer is a cost-effective, software-only, Microsoft Windows-based network monitor and LAN troubleshooting tool. Observer can monitor single-segment LANs and with the addition of Probes, Observer can be upgraded into a full distributed product for monitoring multi-segment LANs and WANs.
Observer offers both real-time monitoring and troubleshooting, as well as a complete trending and baselining collection system to view historical data collected for days, weeks, months or even years.
Through optional Extensions, Observer can track multiple SNMP-enabled devices, view data from any RMON1/2 probe, provide expert analysis and modeling, provide WEB based reports, and Observer's Probes can be configured to report in RMON format. Observer provides a complete management solution for even the most complex LAN/WAN environments.
With Observer, a network administrator can view his or her LAN more clearly, see network traffic in real time, and with this new information, make network decisions based on facts instead of guesswork.
Observer removes the mystery of what is being sent or received by LAN stations.
