The new features in version 8 incorporate the Company's proprietary visual fault domain isolation technology that graphically identifies where problems exist – all while continuing to provide 100 percent stream-to-disk capabilities with deep packet inspection at rates greater than 10 Gbps for more detailed analysis in a single appliance.

“'Is it the server or the network?' That's the No. 1 question network professionals tell us they need to answer as part of any troubleshooting scenario,” said Gary Ger , vice president of enterprise network analysis, Fluke Networks. “Version 8 takes our Network Time Machine platform's performance to the next level not only by answering this question in a fraction of the time, but by doing so in the form of a single, simple appliance that does not require multiple servers, complex deployment scenarios and continuous configuration and maintenance.”

In addition to instantly identifying server versus network problems, the new user interface features user-configurable dashboards that automatically identify and display key performance metrics with instant drill-down capability into root cause analysis.

The software, a free upgrade for existing customers with an active support agreement, is available immediately.
