Canadian application performance monitoring specialist INETCO Systems has announced beta availability of a new streaming transaction event data product, NetStream.
Unveiling the application at .conf2013, the fourth annual Splunk Worldwide Users' Conference, INETCO CEO Bijan Sanii said that the firm's latest product would enhance Splunk users' ability to resolve IT infrastructure issues whilst identifying potential security and compliance issues, and provide real-time insight into UX and business performance.
"Access to transaction information is a critical, universal need for security, IT and business operations teams. INETCO NetStream puts this information within easy reach of Splunk Enterprise users. Access to high-quality, real-time transaction events captured directly off the underlying network brings a whole new context to all other machine-generated data in Splunk Enterprise," he noted.
Like cyber security toolbox Fortscale 1.0, which was also unveiled at .conf2013, NetStream will augment Splunk's big data platform, Enterprise 6.
NetStream is a network-based application that works by consuming packets - either directly from a host machine or remotely from SPAN ports - and then reconstructs individual transaction events, before streaming them to Splunk Enterprise in real-time.
"Our partner community provides additional data sources that enhance the value enterprises and organisations get from Splunk software as a platform for machine data by allowing them to leverage the data across a wide range of use cases. INETCO NetStream will bring network-based transaction data into Splunk software, enabling users to create new correlations and insights about their business," commented aid Bill Gaylord, senior vice president of business development at Splunk.
