New TeVISTA 2.00 From Chevin Aims To Expose Basic Bandwidth Blunders Through Detailed Analysis of LAN/WAN Tuesday 6 November 2001 PDF Print 06 November 2001 – Network management specialist Chevin today launched version 2.00 of TeVISTA, a comprehensive suite that incorporates intelligent bandwidth management tools that spotlight basic network errors. TeVISTA 2.00 provides total visibility of the entire corporate network including bandwidth utilisation by individual network users, devices and applications and across both WAN and LAN connections - critical information when managing corporate bandwidth costs and service level agreements. As part of the overall solution, TeVISTA 2.00 facilitates ongoing analysis of bandwidth capacity requirements, taking into consideration factors such as individual network use, user-access demands and changes in the application environment. Classic ‘bandwidth blunders’ such as inefficient configurations, persistent broadcasting nodes and large file transfers can be isolated and corrective action taken. With TeVISTA 2.00’s vendor independent SNMP reporter and integrated traffic analysis tools, network users performing wasteful and/or high bandwidth applications, such as downloading MP3 or video files over critical routers or switches, can be identified. A powerful network management system, TeVISTA 2.00 enables the baselining of network usage, before monitoring a range of conditions such as over usage and errors, when pre-defined thresholds have been exceeded. The network manager is then alerted via a range of alarms. “IT managers must ensure sufficient bandwidth is available to meet business needs but need to avoid falling into the money pit in the process,” said Koby Amedume, Vice President of Marketing at Chevin. “Businesses must understand how efficient use of their network infrastructure can significantly reduce operating & hardware costs. Buying more bandwidth, faster switches and additional hardware is not always the answer, but in the past, IT managers dealing with multi vendor equipment have been forced to rely on the individual management utilities and often have been unable to spot the cause of their network problems that continue to consume their corporate budgets”. “TeVISTA 2.00 for the first times gives greater visibility of the performance of each network segment including WAN links to the LAN, which is essential if IT managers have a hope of controlling corporate expenditure on bandwidth utilisation and guarding SLAs. The alternative is to just keep throwing money at the problems and hope they will go away,” added Amedume. TeVISTA 2.00 includes an integrated SNMP reporter module that works with any SNMP/RMON equipped device. This works in conjunction with Chevin’s unique Total Visibility Management technology to give both a device and conversation orientated view of network traffic. TeVISTA 2.00 is available immediately from VARs and direct from Chevin. -ends- ABOUT CHEVIN Chevin is a leading provider of innovative software systems that enable organistions to manage and optimise their mission-critical networks.
