NetIM Health Sunburst: Easy Discovery of Poor Device Performance

Heidi Gabrielson

The Riverbed NetIM Health Sunburst automatically calculates your overall health score so you can see instantly how your infrastructure is performing. Instantly identify infrastructure health and availability gaps, then drill into the worst performing areas for fast root cause analysis.

Immediately identify device hot spots 

The NetIM Health Sunburst automatically identifies infrastructure hot spots that are impacting network and application performance. It isolates data by country, region, and city or by sites. This level of visibility enables fast root cause analysis by supporting fast drill down into a list of worst performing devices.

The Sunburst color codes (orange, yellow, green) areas that need improvement, so you can act fast to make appropriate changes. It helps:

  • Provide an immediate picture of overall infrastructure health and the factors that contribute to it to prioritize remediation efforts.
  • Identify infrastructure hot spots with color-coded health scores to speed up problem investigation.
  • Drill-down into problem area to identify poorly performing devices.

The new sunburst health visualization provides an easy alternative to the geographic heatmap and geo-topology visualization options.

How Health Sunburst works

A device’s geographic location data, which can be set in the Device Manager, is used to aggregate by Country, Region, and City. The size and color of the slices in the sunburst is based on the relative number of devices and worst device health, respectively. When you mouse-over a slice, you get a summary of the devices in the slice. Clicking on a slice provides the list of devices in the slice.

Alternatively, you can use device site membership and site hierarchy to aggregate and display health by site with the separate but related Site Health Sunburst visualization panel.
