PacketWise has an innovative feature called adaptive response. I'd like to learn more about what it is and how it works.
Adaptive response is a mechanism which enables PacketShaper to respond to the changes in the network environment. With adaptive response, PacketShaper is allowed to take immediate action to a network condition according to the measurement statistics the unit collects.
Adaptive response consists of the following five categories:
Each agent has a status color as described in the following:
To see the status of your adaptive response categories and agents, go to the info tab.
When the state of an agent has changed (for example, from green to red), adaptive response creates an incident report. Incident reports show supporting data for the problem at the time it occurred, letting you see what just happened. Optionally, an action file can be initiated to respond to a status change. The action file is a script of commands which enables PacketShaper to perform a variety of actions, such as:
