Synergon System Integrator’s application level performance and network traffic
measurement service searches for the answer to the development of the optimal
operational environment after surveying the network and mapping its features.
It investigates the applications running on the network, their role in the business
environment, related expectations and effect regarding the network resource engagement.
On the basis of the investigation results, a protocol is made to represent the
features of the surveyed network in a clearly understandable textual format and
to make a recommendation regarding the modifications considered necessary for
the development of the optimized operational environment.
The application level performance and network traffic measurement service searches
for the answer to the following issues, among other things, providing basic information
for the determination of the necessary interventions:
CONTENT OF SERVICE
Our service provides an answer to the following questions of our customers:
What kinds of applications are ‘running’ on the network and out of this which
ones and to what extent do they engage the available bandwidth of the telecommunication
Are the applications really important from a business aspect which uses up the
To what extent are the lines utilized and how big is the available bandwidth
Are the applications slowed down by low bandwidth or the lack of server capacity?
Is the investment required of information technology for capacity expansion justified?
How would the response time of certain applications change if the bandwidth of
the lines were increased or decreased?
Are users’ complaints regarding the network and slowness of applications well-founded
Which applications slow down, when and in which correlation?
How would it be possible to forecast or prevent the capacity problems due to
the constant increase in the information technology system causing intermittent
breakdowns or significant performance decrease?
What are the rules on the basis of which of the important business applications
could be prioritized for the more efficient bandwidth application?
How can operational risks be decreased efficiently?
How can we trace the effect of an introduced new application or technology on
our information technology system?
How can the risk of introducing critical applications arising from the erroneous
capacity planning be decreased?
How can a service level based operation be implemented which is based on a SLA
acceptable and observable by each organizational division?
Synergon System Integrator has several references regarding the network application
level traffic measurement. At present few system integrators have the proper means
and professional competence facilitating the performance measurement.
Our service provides extremely interesting information in an easily embraceable
and understandable form regarding the applications and network capacities used
in the customer’s network. The result of the analysis can save or release considerable
financial means this way.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What kind of problems can we localize by means of this measurement?
Users often complain about the slow speed of the applications they use, the difficult
and sometimes unstable availability of network resources and the unstable operation
of the information technology system. The slow and unstable access to the applications
or the central resources considerably influences the value creating processes
and increases users’ disappointment indirectly and has a negative effect on users’
work morals. The point/points of the IT structure causing the problem can unambiguously
be localized by means of our service.
What do we exactly understand by the network application level performance measurement?
The components of the traffic passing through the given communication line can
be identified and categorized in the course of the measurement broken down to
applications. We monitor the efficiency of the network communication and measure
the response time of the applications.
How can we benefit from the information gained during the survey?
The analysis demonstrates the applications using the largest bandwidth, the temporal
load of the communication lines (the so-called ‘directions’), exploring the bottlenecks
and the reserves, and points out the weak points of the network, localizes the
source of the experienced error and forecasts the problems foreseeable in the
On the basis of all this, the interventions which are or will be required in
the given information technology system for a cost effective remedy of the problems
can precisely be localized.
Can this measurement constitute a security hazard, will it cause an outage and
will it be necessary to reconfigure the network devices?
The devices used for network traffic measurement match the system in a completely
transparent way, they do not cause any hold-up in the connecting device and do
not require any modification in their configuration. The accommodation and removal
of the measurement device may only cause an outage lasting for some minutes but
these tasks can easily be scheduled to low traffic periods which are practically
designated for maintenance.
