StreamGroomer Manager

The StreamGroomer Manager centralizes management applications. Administration access and performance information is provided via Web browser on any client device to enable complete configuration and operational control. Centralized management strengthens the efficiency of processes, lowers total cost of ownership and guarantees the reliability and coherence of application management policies across the board.

  • Automated collection of application performance metrics from StreamGroomers
  • Automated metric summarization on aging intervals to conserve storage capacity
  • Web applications:
    • StreamView: configuration along with real-time and long-term visibility
    • StreamMap: geographic performance map
    • StreamScorecard: dynamic, quick-view application/site performance indicator matrix
    • StreamDashboard: customized dashboards and Windows widgets
    • StreamReport: PDF, HTML, CSV, XML reporting
    • StreamAccess: flexible access rights management
  • Alert notifications on performance thresholds
  • Short-term packet capture on demand and diagnostics
  • Web services API

The StreamGroomer Manager data resources may be extended with the optional addition of the StreamCollector. The StreamCollector provides:

  • Long-term storage of session data collected from StreamGroomers
  • Long-term storage of NetFlow records collected from 3rd-party collectors
  • Search and display tools to utilize session data to diagnose issues

The StreamGroomer Manager and StreamCollector are separate servers available as virtual appliances or prepackaged with appropriately scaled server hardware in several models. StreamGroomer Manager server hardware scaling correlates linearly with the number of policy rules configured in a Streamcore-managed network. The scaling factor for StreamCollector servers correlates with the number of Flows per Minute (FPM). The Streamcore management solution configurability enables pragmatic and economic scaling flexibilty to fit your specific network operations demands.
