Microbursts can seriously impact network performance but the problem is difficult to detect. Xena provides advanced microburst test solutions for Layer 2-7.

What is microburst?

Microburst is a term used to describe data packets transmitted in a rapid burst that overflows packet buffers of the network stack. Traffic flows and applications often show bursty behavior when transported across IP networks or in data centers.

Microbursts degrade network performance

Microbursts, though short-lived, are difficult to detect and monitor and can degrade network and application performance by causing increased latency, jitter, and packet loss.

Simultaneous microburst arrival test

Xena’s Valkyrie and Vulcan platform provide advanced microburst test solutions, making it easy to define different burst profiles at different link speeds, and bandwidth utilizations. Read this White Paper to learn more.
