Packet Deduplication

Improve Tool Efficiency By Up to 50%

by reducing unnecessary monitoring data

Duplicate packets of monitoring data cause various problems including inefficient use of monitoring tool CPU resources, additional cost for unnecessary tools, and missed security threats. For example, even when optimally configured, a SPAN port may generate between one and four copies of a packet, and the duplicate packets can represent as much as 50% of the network traffic being sent to a monitoring tool. Eliminating this unnecessary data improves the capacity of pertinent data that your monitoring tools can process.
