The NIKSUN NetVCR solution is the world's first full-function appliance for advanced real-time network, service, and application performance monitoring. It is an integrated and scalable solution that provides proactive end-to-end SLM/QoS monitoring and surveillance, real-time, and historical expert analysis, multi-timescale auto-analysis and an online continuous “super analyzer” from the link layer to the application layer. The integration of these critical capabilities on a single appliance makes NetVCR a sought after solution for proactive network management and surveillance.
“NetVCR is a powerful network analysis solution that allows Knight to keep up with demands placed on our systems by rapidly increasing electronic trading volumes across the industry,” said Steven J. Sadoff, Senior Managing Director and Chief Information Officer for Knight Capital Group.
“Over the last few years, Knight has introduced a suite of electronic access products for the buy side, including a multi-asset class direct market access platform, Knight Direct,” Mr. Sadoff said. “Meanwhile, more than 90% of Knight’s sell-side order flow is processed electronically. Knight trades on our clients’ behalf, and therefore we require near real-time identification and resolution of issues. NetVCR will help us ensure optimal performance across our network and its 10-Gigabit components as we continue to process trades and market data as quickly and efficiently as possible.”
