Troubleshoot Multicasting

It’s challenging to troubleshoot a multicast network. Multicast forwarding states are dynamic in nature and external monitoring is required because there is no congestion control. With the increasing demand for video, online collaboration, and omnipresent financial data, multicasting design is growing more and more complex.

NetBrain provides a visual and automated approach to multicast troubleshooting that simplifies the process:
