As I mentioned, we are doing some testing this week in the lab on WAN acceleration and optimization devices and most recently we've been working with some Riverbed devices. I must say, I'm impressed with the manageability of these devices.
Out of the box. Orion was able to collect stats on CPU, memory, swap, buffer allocation, interface traffic, and interface errors. Additionally, I'm getting NetFlow information directly from this device and it seems to be working swimmingly. It's not often that I see a device that is as easy to manage as these, so I'm impressed.
Anybody else using these devices in their network?
