Complete visibility of inter-VNF traffic in NFV networks

Virtual Network Function Visibility for NFV Networks

Monitoring virtual environments is more complex than their physical equivalents because NFV servers are expected to contain dozens of service chains and hundreds of network functions.

Veryx SAMTEST for NFV provides the capability to implement performance monitoring of virtual network functions (VNFs). The Veryx vTAP is a lightweight pluggable software component that supports monitoring of both east west and north south traffic of VNFs. This granular traffic visibility in virtual network infrastructures, allows users to identify and isolate potential network issues that could affect performance.

Veryx SAMTEST for NFV monitoring provides a high level of flexibility in utilizing test resources and the capability for generation of analytics and reporting.
