Big Mon leverages cloud principles to architect a new class of Network Packet Brokers (NPBs) for pervasive hybrid cloud visibility. Powered by a software defined networking (SDN) controls, Big Mon provides a scale-out fabric design based on commodity open hardware, with integrated analytics and packet recording intelligence. Advanced traffic processing functions, including regex filtering, deduplication, slicing, masking, flow data generation/collection and application recognition are provisioned through a single Big Mon controller. Traffic can be aggregated, load balanced to centrally located tools, policies can be applied fabric-wide, and troubleshooting can be performed with a few clicks. Big Mon also provides role based access controls, event thresholds and alerts, application dependency mapping, and machine learning for comprehensive, predictive insights.
