Layer 7 visibility | Cascade Sensor
Managing end-user experience requires an understanding of application communications between infrastructure components. The Riverbed Cascade® Sensor appliance passively monitors Layer 7 application response time, which helps you do deep packet inspection, validate quality of service (QoS) concerns plus identify and resolve performance issues. These metrics are passed to the Riverbed Cascade® Profiler appliance or Riverbed Cascade® Express appliance for analysis and reporting.
