Rethinking Network Troubleshooting

Allegro Network Multimeters are powerful yet easy to use diagnostic appliances for network analysis. They are used by network administrators to monitor and acquire highly granular real-time and historical network traffic. A comprehensive network analysis can be quickly performed, network problems can be detected with just a few clicks, performance bottlenecks identified, and packet losses detected. The Network Multimeter is the market-leading device for analyzing faults and peak loads, and a highly efficient monitoring tool to ensure best network quality.

The entry-level models of the Allegro Network Multimeter are small, lightweight and do not need to be configured. They can be flexibly integrated at almost any point in the network, either directly at the customer’s premises or accessed remotely. Our customers appreciate the fact that our debugger is both mobile and high-performance. This provides cost-efficient and powerful network analysis.

The Allegro Network Multimeter is available in four different system sizes – designed for network analysis in 1 G, 10 G, 40 G or 100 G networks. The entry-level model (Allegro 200) which weighs in at 260 g is not much larger than a smartphone; the larger versions (Allegro 1000 / Allegro 3000) fit into a laptop bag and weigh around 2 kg. The Allegro 1000 & 3000 Series is also available as a rackmount unit. The 3500 / 5500 Series are optimized as 4U rack devices for installation in server racks. All Allegro Network Multimeters help speed up your network analysis many times over.

Rethinking network analysis
  • Mobile appliance for 1 to 100 GBit/s

  • Analysis and correlation of all metadata on layer 2–7
  • Selective and retroactive pcap extraction
  • Real-time analysis straight after installation
  • Development and support from Germany

Fast troubleshooting

The Allegro makes both real-time and historical analysis of network traffic possible. It analyzes and correlates all data across the network layers 2 to 7, allowing network problems or unexpected traffic to be detected in seconds. The appliance is available in different versions: as a mobile or rack version, for small data centers, large ISPs, but also for the local company network.

Addition to Wireshark

The troubleshooting appliance shows both the big picture as well as the finer details. Network or application problems can be searched for, pre-filtered and then extracted as a pcap. This simplifies the Wireshark analysis because only a fraction of the total traffic needs to be analyzed. The Allegro’s integrated pcap ring buffer (standard in Allegro 1000/3000 Series) makes this possible even for operations that have happened in the past.

Quick diagnosis

Click-through structures and selective pcap extraction help you to find the content you need quickly. The web interface search function allows you to sort, search and filter by MAC or IP addresses, ports, VLANs, TCP handshakes, HTTP latencies and more. You get the results in a fraction of a second, enabling immediate analysis.

Comprehensive analyses

The Allegro includes many different analysis modules for L2 to L7. Search and extract all the different Ethernet types such as LLDP on L2, for instance, or automatically search for microbursts on the link. For example, you can use L4 TCP to analyze retransmissions globally or per IP endpoint, and L7 to identify potential VoIP quality problems in SIP and RTP streams. Allegro Packets is constantly working to extend these modules.

Uncomplicated startup

The Allegro can be integrated quickly and easily anywhere in your network. You don’t need to install any extra software. Access data via the browser-independent web interface, also remotely. You can install the Allegro as needed: on the mirror port, tap or as a bridge.
