Product description provided by OPNET Technologies:
ACE Live on RSP is the first application performance monitoring solution in the market that runs directly on a Riverbed appliance (or on any other leading WAN optimization vendor appliance).
ACE Live on RSP runs within the Riverbed Services Platform (RSP), provides end-user experience monitoring and increases visibility into application performance at remote sites without the need for an expanded branch office hardware footprint. Based on OPNET's popular ACE Live hardware appliances, ACE Live on RSP is a virtual appliance that allows enterprises to deploy best-of-breed network and application performance monitoring while enabling the consolidation of servers and lowering costs.
The RSP is an enterprise-class platform that enables a drastic reduction in the branch office IT footprint by running up to five remote office third-party software modules -- without the need for separate dedicated servers. OPNET's ACE Live provides monitoring, measurement, and detection of application performance violations. It supports complete visibility and reporting of all transactions and users, with detailed real-time and historical information about end-user response times, utilization, route quality, and ISP performance. ACE Live on RSP allows organizations to make the most of their accelerated WAN environment by monitoring application response time to ensure that end-user performance meets business requirements. RSP customers will be able to continuously monitor end-to-end application performance over the WAN, automatically baseline performance and receive alarms when thresholds are violated, and quantify the bandwidth reduction realized from Steelhead appliance deployments.
