A key feature of AppQoS is the ability to filter or aggregate the data going through the physical network ports of the monitoring appliance. It achieves this through the concept of Virtual Interface Detectors (VIDs). These VIDs
As a result, AppQoS allows physically disparate but associated traffic to be logically “pooled” and mixed network traffic to be logically partitioned
VIDs provide real time Layer 3-4 protocol analysis for all applications. Real-time Layer 7 analysis is also provided for applications including HTTP, FTP, CIFS (MS Net BIOS) and VOIP by using Protocol Analysis Modules (PAMs).
AppQoS uses multi layer (duplicated) data management techniques so that the stored data is already optimised for data retrieval query requirements. AppQoS provides the same high level of granularity whether reviewing a single hour of data or a whole month’s data as old data is neither summarised or compressed.
