The TRAFip is a monitoring system of traffic. The monitoring is performed from the collection of data proceeding from protocols that organize the packages of network in flows. The NetFlow of Cisco is the most well known among the protocols that perform such task. However, the TRAFip is a multivendor system, therefore possesses support to the other protocol that carries through similar functions, such as the sFlow, the jFlow among others.
The TRAFip performs the summarization of the data collected and expresses the results into charts and reports with extreme abundance of details. Subsequently there are some of the several examples of outputs that the TRAFip can provide:
Therefore, the access will not only be destined to data relative to the absolute traffic, but also to the stratified traffic. In this form, the visibility of the traffic will be completed, for every bit that passes through by your network, you will know the origin, the destiny and the content.
In this usage case, we will tell the history of a provider that didn’t have the correct vision of traffic of your network, as well as with the impact caused when the TRAFip was implanted to monitor the traffic of your clients. The impact was immediate, both in relation to the costs, as well as in relation to the experience of your clients.
But, how did it happen?
How the provider didn’t possess the visibility and was not aware of the distribution of traffic in relation to its hired links. With the TRAFip it is possible to visualize the distribution of the usage of the links in relation of the ASNs. With that, identifying which sites and services of Internet were more oftenly accessed. It was a surprise, when it was discovered that more than 70% of the consumption of the link of data were for services that possessed CDNs.
CDNs, are servers distributed in a geographical manner, which possess the objective of providing faster connection for the users. In other words, the CDNs allow the users to connect themselves to servers that are closer physically to your locality. Therefore, guaranteeing a better experience to the user. Besides providing a relevant reduction in the usage of the links that the ISP hires to connect their clients to the Internet.
The main services of Internet possess CDNs, such as, for example, Google and Netflix. The ISPs can request these servers to the companies by means of compliance of requirements of traffic. With the TRAFip, the ISP has been able to identify which CDNs it could request and with that reduce the costs of their links paid.
With the reduction in the usage of hired links the economy for this ISP has been around BRL 30,000.00 monthly. Besides saving a very significant amount, with the servers closer to your clients, there has been a great improvement in the experience of the users in relation to the mostly accessed services.
The TRAFip, besides being a system of monitoring of traffic, it is a fundamental system to help the governance of your company, considering the importance of the computers network as a resource. Have complete visibility of how this resource is utilized.
In this sense, there are no doubts about the importance of investing in network management. In this manner, it is perceptible that these good practices bring not only benefits for the visibility of the infrastructure, but also a way of guaranteeing crucial information for the governance of the network.
