Businesses need to understand network activity in real time for troubleshooting, and over months or even a year for SLA compliance, planning, and network optimization. WatchPoint monitors enterprise networks and stores analytics for up to 1 year of traffic.
When IT organizations need to review network activity from past events—for example, when they want to review in detail how the network performed during a sales promotion, a surge in business activity, or a security attack—WatchPoint provides detailed analytics that have not been rendered through polling or sampling, at 1-minute intervals indefinitely.
WatchPoint provides network-wide reporting, while also allowing network engineers to drill down instantly to a packet-level view of any network segment under management. WatchPoint integrates with WildPackets’ award-winning network analyzer OmniPeek to provide a comprehensive solution for network analysis.
WatchPoint automatically reports popular network-management metrics, including:

Businesses and IT organizations like to set long-term goals for their IT investments but usually lack network monitoring solutions for analyzing long-term performance. Service-level Agreements (SLAs) typically span one year, but most network reporting at that time period is vague and general at best. To get a sense of how their IT services have performed over the course of an SLA, administrators usually have to cobble multiple short-term reports together.
WatchPoint provides real-time, short-term, and long-term reporting, so IT organizations and business managers can evaluate network performance at whatever time scale makes the most sense for the analysis at hand. Detailed, long-term reporting helps organizations plan and provision new services with greater accuracy and understanding.
WatchPoint integrates with other WildPackets products, including:
WatchPoint also integrates with NetFlow and sFlow collectors, enabling enterprises to collect and centrally monitor network data from multiple monitoring technologies.
