What is IP Route Analysis?
IP route analysis is a process that examines the path taken by network traffic from its source device to its destination across multiple routers and networks. This analysis is crucial for troubleshooting network connectivity issues, optimizing routing configurations, and ensuring efficient packet delivery.
Depending on the location, destination, network sizes, and architectures, an IP route can range from fairly simple to very complex, especially in large networks. Regular IP route analysis can help maintain network performance and reliability.
How to monitor IP Route Analysis?
ServicePilot makes it easy to monitor IP routing with no configuration required on the target server. A resource of the appmon-ip-route-analysis package needs to be added via the ServicePilot web interface.
This package automatically configures the ServicePilot Agent in order to check the reachability of a specific IP Address by:
- Listing the intermediary IP addresses that can be found on the route to the destination
- Testing response times and putting emphasis on the worst response time and link
How to install a ip-route-analysis resource?
- Use your ServicePilot OnPremise installation or a SaaS account.
- Add a new ip-route-analysis resource via the web interface (
/prmresources) or via API (
/prmpackagespage), the default ServicePilot agent or another agent will be provisioned automatically.
Details of the ip-route-analysis package are located in the
/prmpackagespage of the software.
ServicePilot enables you to deliver IT services faster and more securely with automated discovery and advanced monitoring features.
By correlating the technology IP ROUTE ANALYSIS with APM and infrastructure monitoring, ServicePilot is able to provide a more comprehensive view of an organization's IT environment.
This allows IT teams to quickly identify and diagnose issues that may be impacting application performance, and take corrective action before end-users are affected.
