Get to the Point

These days it's easy to see the draw of a product that solves a problem without costing an arm and a leg, but the fact is, point products have always had a better price-performance ratio than broader network and systems management solutions have had. The key right now: Increases in computing speeds have let vendors make better sense of mounds of data. For example, NetQoS is shipping SuperAgent, a 1U appliance with a simple HTML interface that works right out of the box and requires less than a day's worth of implementation time. It sits on the wire and can decode application traffic by reading TCP packets.
