Note: AppPerf is currently in Beta release, if you encounter any issues or have feedback please email email@example.com
AppPerf is a free standalone tool that does speed test between internal enterprise web servers and client hosts. AppPerf does not need to be ‘installed’ on the webserver, but some files need to be placed there. AppPerf files can be placed onto an Immediate Insight web server if desired, however another web server may be used if applicable. Results of AppPerf tests are then feed to an Immediate Insight instance for collection & reporting (this may or may not be on the same Immediate Insight as the AppPerf files are loaded). The following example instructions assume AppPerf files are loaded onto the same Immediate Insight instance as is collection the test results. Immediate Insight app-2015-10-05 or newer is required to collect the data.
Step 1: Obtain the AppPerf files and put them in place.
Step 2: Configure the Immediate Insight instance for the AppPerf capability.
rm –f /home/insight/app/search/AppPerf; ln –s /home/insight/AppPerf /home/insight/app/search/AppPerf
(edit AppPerf.html for applicable Immediate Insight data collector)
var ii = “192.168.35.139:3002”
var appsrv = “test-server-A”
IF and only if your Immediate Insight servers is accessed via HTTPS change entry as follows: var ii = “https://192.168.1.140:3088”
(NOTE: you will also need to create an HTTPS Listener using 3088 on Immediate Insight)
(NOTE: optionally but recommended, to stop HTTPS certificate warning messages you can follow the procedure in Immediate Insight install guide)
Results are also searchable in the Immediate Insight specified in AppPerf.html
So you’ve purchased a new firewall. Now what?
You’ve got to decide which access is allowed, which isn’t allowed and whether or not rules are compliant with internal and regulatory standards.
Things are running along smoothly and then the dreaded “change.” A user submits a new access request and the fun begins. Is this access necessary? Safe? Compliant? And what happens when it’s time to retire unused rules?
How Effective Security Management Can Help Teams Cover the Exponentially Increasing Gap between Technology & the Resources Available to Manage It
Security teams today are under tremendous pressure due to the rising frequency and impact of breaches and a business that wants to move faster and faster. The answer to both of these challenges has always been to add more technology and staff resources.
However, each new technology added creates complexity. More rules are created and more data is generated. As networks continue to evolve, this complexity will only grow. And while staff resources may increase, they will never match the exponential growth of technology.
FireMon calls this phenomenon The Complexity Gap and has set out to help security teams close it.
Join us for this webinar with Frost & Sullivan where we’ll explore the causes of “The Gap” and how workforce multipliers such as intelligence and automation help staff manage their security more efficiently and more effectively.
Helping Enterprise Security Teams Improve Resource Efficiency & Reduce Overall Risk Exposure
Firewall technology has come a long way since its initial, most rudimentary forms. Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFW) are the latest development, and organizations are accelerating adoption to the new technology. But NGFWs aren’t a fix-all solution.
