Enterprise Agents in the Modern Enterprise Network

Enterprise Agents are software probes deployed within the enterprise network where users or application traffic originates—in data centers, branch offices, virtual private clouds (VPCs) and virtual networks (VNets)—and measure application performance through a combination of active and passive monitoring techniques.

Campus and LAN

Gain end-to-end visibility across devices, LAN, service providers and service components, such as DNS, DHCP and cloud/SaaS networks.

SaaS Performance

Monitor availability and performance of business-critical SaaS applications, such as Microsoft 365, Salesforce, Webex® and more.

Hybrid and Multi-Cloud

Monitor performance of on-ramp cloud connectivity between your data center and VPC, as well as inter-region and inter-availability zone (AZ) cloud network.

 

WAN and SD-WAN Readiness

Perform a pre-migration readiness audit, ISP evaluation and application performance benchmarking, and gain visibility into the overlay and underlay network paths and performance.

Visualize the Modern WAN

Understand your network performance and the critical dependencies that might impact business continuity.

Correlated Intelligence Into Service Delivery and Performance

Correlate visibility across multiple layers from the application, network, device and Internet routing for greater context around application performance.

Network Path and Performance

ThousandEyes Path Visualization maps end-to-end network paths from Enterprise Agents to service endpoints across any network, including SD-WAN overlay/underlay tunnels, and visually presents BGP routes.

Application Performance

Monitor the usability and performance of SaaS and internally hosted apps by measuring page load times of individual web components or by using scripted multistep transactions that replicate user interactions and validate API logic.

Device Health

Poll switches, routers and firewalls using SNMP to collect device health data, such as memory, CPU and performance impacting interface metrics.

Cloud Agents

Cloud Agents provide globally distributed vantage points throughout the Internet and are maintained by ThousandEyes. They are located in 200 cities and are connected to Tier 1, 2 and 3 ISPs, broadband service providers and regional data centers of major cloud providers.

Enterprise Agents

Enterprise Agents provide visibility from within your data centers, cloud VPCs/VNETs and branches. In addition to active monitoring, Enterprise Agents also offer SNMP-based monitoring, as well as discovery and topological mapping of internal network devices.

Endpoint Agents

Endpoint Agents offer end user experience monitoring and deploy on Mac and Windows devices. Periodic user monitoring is performed via HTTP and network monitoring tests that include insight into routing paths. Real-time monitoring can be enabled via an optional browser-based plugin.
