Referentia Systems Incorporated, a leader in cyber security and network enterprise solutions for the Department of Defense (DoD), announced the availability of LiveAction 2.0 software. The 2.0 software release launched by Referentia's spin-out company, ActionPacked! Networks, includes QoS capabilities for the visual creation and editing of QoS policies, end-to-end flow visualization and real-time QoS monitoring for analyzing traffic performance before and after QoS policies are applied, routing visualization and policy-based route configuration for troubleshooting and optimizing critical paths, and IP SLA for proactive QoS performance monitoring and testing within a visual, all-in-one management environment.
Following LiveAction's all-in-one QoS management approach, new quality-of-service related features of LiveAction include built-in rules for viewing and configuring Cisco Hierarchical Queuing Framework (HQF) policies, automated alerts for pre- and post-QoS events, and the ability to view hardware QoS settings and statistics for managing end-to-end QoS environments. The new version also includes a new web-based portal for generating and distributing over 30 different network status reports and graphs.
"Version 2.0 provides significant enhancements for our customers including support for Flexible NetFlow and NetFlow v9 and the industry's only complete visualization of IPv6 traffic flows across a live network," said Referentia President Nelson Kanemoto. "We've added dozens of other new NetFlow features including viewable MAC source and destination addresses and VLANs, ASA support, and NetFlow configuration for Cisco Catalyst 6500 switches and Cisco 7600 routers. We also added historical tracking for IP SLA, and our new html reporting interface makes it easier for network engineers to consolidate, analyze, and share with each other the breadth of information that LiveAction extracts from the network."
"Our software takes a holistic view of network quality that extends beyond just QoS monitoring," said Kanemoto. "We use Cisco Routing, IP SLA, NetFlow, and QoS monitoring and configuration in combination with each other to create a more complete picture and to establish greater awareness of what is really happening in the network. It's like having the power of an extra CCIE right at your fingertips."
A free 14-day trial of LiveAction 2.0 software is available for downloading at www.actionpacked.com/liveactiondownload. Permanent licenses and upgrades to earlier versions are also available now from ActionPacked! Networks and all authorized ActionPacked! resellers.
