Opnet Expands Performance Monitoring

BETHESDA, Md. -- OPNET Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:OPNT), a leading provider of solutions for managing networks and applications, today announced new models of its ACE Live appliance for end-to-end application performance monitoring. The ACE Live 4100 offers the same end-user experience monitoring and analysis capabilities as existing ACE Live models with enhancements including continuous data capture and longer term storage, faster throughput, and high speed interfaces.

ACE Live is an end-to-end solution that spans monitoring, measurement, and detection of application performance violations, providing visibility of all transactions and users across the enterprise. The new ACE Live 4100 introduces Targeted Forensic Archiving, an intelligent, efficient mode of data capture and storage that facilitates root cause analysis of application performance problems with lower cost of ownership than traditional modes of packet data storage. The ACE Live 4100 is able to automatically store all packets, even in extreme burst conditions, capturing packets to disk at high speeds, and including support for 10G interfaces.

With Targeted Forensic Archiving, the ACE Live 4100 automatically identifies and retains data that is relevant to performance delays so that analysis can be performed later as needed. It eliminates the need to store excessive amounts of data for extended time frames, thereby avoiding high costs associated with this more traditional approach.

OPNET's hybrid approach to managing forensic data effectively balances the need for critical information retention with the cost of maintaining large data archives including power, physical space, HVAC, etc.

"The ACE Live 4100 introduces exciting capabilities that leverage exclusive technology from OPNET," according to Alain Cohen, OPNET President & CTO. "Targeted Forensic Archiving demonstrates our leadership in delivering practical innovations that effectively address customer requirements and provide substantial return on investment.
Further, with the addition of the 4100, OPNET offers a solution for the full range of customer environments, from the small branch office to the largest data center."
