Overview

Observer Matrix Network Monitoring Switch is the perfect device to enhance the power of your monitoring appliances. Designed from the ground-up, the Matrix uses a modern HTML5 GUI and the best underlying hardware technology for optimal ease of use and performance. Stop compromising simple configurability or giving up on powerful switch features and functionality. With Matrix quickly leverage all your legacy monitoring tools, and get the right data to the right tool in a timely manner. IT teams will benefit with features such as:

  • Industry’s first rule-based interface makes packet manipulation and filtering a breeze
  • Drag-and-drop GUI network-tool port connectivity provides the ultimate in flexible traffic flow configuration, visualization, and management
  • Cost-effective design means pay for only those monitoring resources you need while making 24 port expansion simple
  • Traffic pre-processing which can extend the life of legacy monitoring equipment or dramatically increase tool efficiency
  • Selectively directing and passing only the most critical traffic making the transition to 10 Gb less painful

Matrix achieves all this by exploiting the core Network Instruments competency; placing high-end functionality and components directly into a custom hardware design rather than implementing an invariably slower solution in software. Wrapping it all together in a modern GUI makes it unique in the industry and offers the best of both worlds—extreme performance and incredible usability.
