Components of GigaVUE Cloud Suite for Kubernetes

The GigaVUE Cloud Suite for Kubernetes Containers includes the following components:

■   GigaVUE® Fabric Manager (GigaVUE-FM) is a web-based fabric management and orchestration interface that provides a single pane of glass visibility, management, and orchestration of both the physical and virtual traffic that form the GigaVUE Cloud.

You must have GigaVUE-FM installed either on-premises or launched from any of the supported cloud platforms. Refer to the “GigaVUE-FM Installation Guide” for details on installing and launching GigaVUE-FM.

GigaVUE-FM manages the configuration of the following visibility components, if you use GigaVUE® V Series node in Kubernetes:

o   G-vTAP Container which is the Gigamon traffic acquisition container
o   GigaVUE® V Series Nodes
o   GigaVUE® V Series Controllers
■   G-vTAP Container is the Traffic Acquisition Component of Gigamon's Kubernetes Network Visibility Offering. It receives mirrored traffic from various Kubernetes Networking Infrastructure such as Flannel and Calico and overlays (VXLAN) them to GigaVUE V Series nodes or the physical nodes for further processing.
■   GigaVUE® V Series Controller manages multiple V Series nodes and orchestrates the flow of traffic from GigaVUE V Series nodes to the monitoring tools. GigaVUE-FM uses one or more GigaVUE V Series Controllers to communicate with the GigaVUE V Series nodes.
■   GigaVUE® V Series Node is a visibility node that aggregates mirrored traffic from multiple G-vTAP containers. It applies filters, manipulates the packets using GigaSMART applications, and distributes the optimized traffic to:
o   Cloud-based tools
o   Backhaul to GigaVUE Cloud using GRE or VXLAN tunnels
o   On-premise tools, such as a GigaVUE H Series device
