According to a recent press release, “Aerohive Networks, a Cloud Networking leader, today announced new historical reporting capabilities for its network performance monitoring tool Comparative Analytics, a recently introduced big data toolset designed to help organizations anonymously benchmark infrastructure and client device metrics against similar sized deployments and industries. Comparative Analytics enables organizations to assess the state of their network beyond the information presented by their own network management system, which due to the design approach taken by many vendors today, often leave IT administrators with a slew of subjective and unclear reports that don’t offer any real insight into how the network is actually operating. Comparative Analytics removes any ambiguity, offering organizations a broader scope of useful, objective, and actionable datasets that help them determine network correction or upgrade requirements.”
The release goes on, “With Aerohive’s latest Cloud updates, organizations now have access to a wider set of valuable real time and historical measurements, focusing on bandwidth usage, unique client connections, technology types, devices with poor health, and upcoming wired and Wi-Fi metrics including WAN latency, switch utilization, Wi-Fi connection success, and IoT device population profiling, that can be viewed within HiveManager or downloaded for offline consumption. The newly formatted Comparative Analytics historical reporting chart metrics over an extended period of time, allowing administrators to evaluate whether configuration changes made to the network are having a positive impact on the network over time.”
