GigaVUE Fabric Manager (GigaVUE-FM) is a web-based fabric management interface that provides high-level visibility and management of both the physical and virtual traffic visibility nodes that form the Gigamon Traffic Visibility Fabric™. GigaVUE-FM can manage the following types of traffic visibility nodes:
GigaVUE-FM manages GigaVUE G Series, TA Series, and H Series nodes, allowing for a unified workspace, while also providing an easy-to-use wizard-based approach for configuring Flow Mapping® and GigaSMART® traffic policies. Refer to Nodes and Clusters .
GigaVUE-FM also extends the GigaVUE feature set into the virtual space by allowing for the discovery, configuration, and management of the GigaVUE-VM virtual traffic visibility node. GigaVUE-VM provides powerful Flow Mapping® technology for the traffic flowing between virtual machines, allowing you to distribute cloud-based traffic to physical tool ports in the visibility fabric. Refer to GigaVUE Cloud Suite.
The GigaVUE Cloud Suite provides cloud-native solutions that acquire, optimize and distribute selected traffic to security and monitoring tools. The suite enables enterprises to extend their security posture to the public cloud and accelerate the time to detect threats to applications while taking advantage of a reliable, scalable and available cloud environment.
