Allegro Packets offer fast and affordable network troubleshooting. The appliances, starting under £5k, can be deployed in less than 60 seconds and no set up is required.
By analysing and correlating all data across network layers 2 to 7, detailed insight is provided for both real-time network traffic and historic. Network problems can be detected with just a few clicks, performance bottlenecks identified and packet losses detected.
The web interface search function allows you to sort, search and filter by MAC or IP addresses, ports, VLANs, TCP handshakes, HTTP latency and more. Drill down and extract as a pcap – reducing Wireshark analysis to just the specific traffic of interest. The availability of historic data means it’s simple to look back, see what happened and discover who/what was the culprit.
Allegro Packets offer a range of appliances, from a small 1GB portable to rackmount 100GB with extended storage. They can be flexibly integrated at almost any point in the network (on the mirror port, tap or as a bridge) and accessed directly or remotely.
The Allegro 200 can analyse traffic data for up to 50 PCs or servers. With 2 x 1 Gbps ports it enables highly accurate analysis via inline on the link, or through the use of up to two mirror ports. This portable appliance has 2 GB internal memory - however an external hard disk or SSD can be connected via USB 3.
Allegro 1000 series
The Allegro 1000 and the Allegro 1200 are 1U rack appliances, offering 1 Gbps to 10 Gbps analysis for up to 10,000 servers. The standard version offers 2 x SFP+ for 1G and 10G SFP modules, 5 x 1G-BaseT for analysis and 1 x 1G-Base-T as a management port. In addition, there are expansion cards for up to 4 x SFP+ ports, 2 x 10G-Base-T ports, 4 x 1G-Base-T ports, 2 x SFP28, 2 x QSFP28 or 2 x SFP+ with GPS connections for exact time stamps to the nanosecond. The standard version is equipped with a 16 GB memory, but this can be expanded to 64 GB or 128 GB.
Allegro 3000 series
Allegro 3000 appliances are suitable for ISPs, large enterprise networks or data centres for link analysis on nodes with a load exceeding 10 Gbps. This enables real-time and historical analysis for up to 40 Gbps traffic. With optional 25G (2 x SFP28) and 40G / 100G (2 x QSFP28) expansions, the Allegro 3000 series are the ideal analysis appliance for 25, 40 or 100 G networks. The Allegro 3000 series incorporates a 64 GB internal memory in the standard version, expandable to 128 GB. As with the Allegro 1000 series, internal hard disk, NVMe SSD or external USB 3 HDD / SSD can be used as ring buffers.
