Colasoft Unified Performance Management (UPM) is a business-oriented network performance management system, which analyzes network performance, quality, fault, and security issues based on business. By providing visual analysis of business performances, Colasoft UPM helps users promote business-oriented proactive network operational capability, ensure the stable running of businesses, and enhance troubleshooting efficiency.
Colasoft UPM contains two parts: Chronos Server as a frontend device and UPM Center as the analysis center.
Frontend devices are deployed at the key nodes of the communication link of business systems, which capture business communication data by switch port-mirroring or network TAP. The frontend collects and analyzes the performance index parameters and application alarm information in real-time, and uploads to the UPM Center via the management interface for overall analysis.
Visit our Network Protocol Analyzer Section for high-quality technical articles covering Wireshark topics, detecting and creating different type of network attacks plus many more great security articles.
UPM Center is deployed at the headquarters to collect the business performance indexes and alarm information uploaded by frontend devices, and display the analysis results.
