  • Patent number: 10462031
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a network agent, associated with an operating system of a computing device, tracks socket connection calls made by a plurality of cotenant processes on the computing device that share a common network transport between the computing device and a remote computing device. The network agent may then extract a process identification (ID) for the socket connection calls, the process ID identifying which particular cotenant process of the plurality of cotenant processes is making each particular socket connection call. While monitoring network metrics of network traffic flows over socket connections between the computing device and the remote computing device, the network agent may attribute given network metrics from particular socket connections to a corresponding cotenant process based on the correlated process ID for the socket connection. As such, the network agent may then report the network metrics as attributed to the corresponding cotenant processes.

  • Publication number: 20190132207
    Abstract: According to one or more embodiments of the disclosure, techniques herein provide for auto discovery of network proxies. In particular, in one embodiment, a controller in a computer network receives, from both source devices and destination devices, corresponding Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) information and associated transaction identifiers (IDs) for packets sent by the source devices and for packets received at the destination devices. The controller may then correlate particular source TCP/IP information to particular destination TCP/IP information based on associated transaction IDs being the same, and can compare the correlated source TCP/IP information and destination TCP/IP information in order to determine whether a proxy device exists (e.g., and which particular type of proxy device exists) between the source device and the destination device.

  • Patent number: 10212063
    Abstract: A system monitors applications and network flows used during the business transaction to determine distributed business transaction anomalies caused at least in part by network performance issues. A network flow associated with a business transaction is monitored by a network agent. The network agent may capture packets, analyze the packets and other network data to determine one or more baselines, and dynamically compare subsequent network flow performance to those baselines to determine an anomaly. When an anomaly in a network flow is detected, this information may be provided to a user along with other data regarding a business transaction that is utilizing the network flow. Concurrently with the network agent monitoring, application agents may monitor one or more applications performing the business transaction. The present system reports performance data for a business transaction in terms of application performance and network performance, all in the context of a distributed business transaction.

  • Publication number: 20190034254
    Abstract: In one embodiment, techniques herein monitor activity of one or more applications in a computer network, and identify individual business transactions occurring within the one or more applications. Additionally, network traffic metrics within the computer network may be determined, and particular network traffic metrics can be correlated to each of the individual business transactions. By developing a baseline of network traffic metrics based on network traffic metrics of one or more individual business transactions, a trigger may be detected to perform root cause analysis on the activity of the one or more applications. As such, the techniques herein may initiate, in response to the trigger, root cause analysis on the activity of the one or more applications, where the root cause analysis leverages the correlation of anomalous network traffic metrics to particular business transactions.

  • Patent number: 9866436
    Abstract: A system and method is disclosed for seamless network management monitoring when a device or Virtual Machine migrates. As part of a network management monitoring system and method, a separate distinct identifier is designated to each port and each device or VM being monitored. When a device is located a specific port a correlation between the distinct identifier of that port and the distinct identifier of the device is stored in a correlation table and monitored. Once this correlation changes, the network management monitoring system recognizes a migration has occurred and updates the correlation table to correlate the new port's distinct identifier with the device's distinct identifier. Parameters that were set up to be monitored for the device can then continue to be monitored at the new location.

  • Publication number: 20170126789
    Abstract: The present technology may identify issues in network architectures, such as load balancers operating between machines that process a distributed business transaction, and automatically generate and apply policy updates to such machines. The present system monitors a distributed application through the applications processing the transaction as well as the network flows over which the machines communicate while processing the transaction. By monitoring the network flow and application, the system can tell when an anomaly is caused not by an application but by the network infrastructure itself. Portions of the network infrastructure, such as load balancers, may be singled out as a point of failure and automatically corrected. The failure may be a general degradation of performance or associated with the processing of a particular business transaction.

  • Patent number: 9264317
    Abstract: A desired node is selected from a tree structure or list and then a number of levels from that node are displayed in a map. For edge nodes, the number of undisplayed links from that node is displayed. When another node is selected on the map, the number of levels is recalculated based on that node or the existing nodes remain and the desired level is additionally displayed from the selected node. Multiple nodes can be selected from the list, which may result in separated islands which join when an common node is displayed in each island. Filters can be applied to limit the number of nodes. The filtering may either remove nodes from the display or provide an indication of the number of undisplayed nodes meeting the filter and any displayed nodes meeting the filter. The technique can be used on most linked networks.
