Kentik Network Performance Management

Improve Visibility with Network Performance Management

Applications generate traffic, but networks deliver it. Decades on, it’s still difficult to pinpoint performance issues like packet loss or latency. It’s become even more complex with continuous delivery, micro-services, hybrid clouds, and internet traffic delivery. Legacy packet capture appliances don’t understand modern environments, and synthetic tests can’t tell you the impact on actual traffic and real users.

Kentik’s network traffic intelligence platform was built from the ground up to understand the performance of actual traffic delivery from modern applications and infrastructure, across both internal network and internet paths.
