Accedian Skylight Primary Use Case

Mario Oosters
Network Architect at a recruiting/HR firm with 501-1,000 employees
Our primary use case is troubleshooting. If a user starts to complain about something that's not working, we have a look into it. It depends on whether it's already into the mirrors or not, because that's a problem at the moment. We have most of our servers on ESX machines at the moment, and each of these machines have dual 10-giga links. Putting them all together with a mirror onto only one 10-giga link makes it drop packets. I usually don't do that. I usually only put one or two of those servers into the mirror to avoid too much packet loss. In the future we should go for a more distributed version, where we have Skylight on each ESX server so we don't lose any information at all. But at the moment, we have just one big appliance, called Site Extra Large, and we are running 5.1.3R1. View full review »

We use it to troubleshoot application issues. For instance, when an application is slow we can identify where the bottleneck is in the chain. View full review »
Joel Baczynski
Network Administrator at CHR Citadelle
We are a hospital and we have a lot of external consultants and a lot of external programs. When we have a performance problem with a program, generally the response of the consultant is, "Oh, it's your network, your infrastructure, your server." With Skylight it's easy to prove that the problem is not our infrastructure and, in most cases, the problem is the application. We use it to improve the performance of the database tables as well as for our Citrix solution. View full review »
