IU’s GlobalNOC offers network monitoring service, improving research collaboration

The NetSage regional network monitoring system, was previously only available to users who collaborated via an NSF grant.

Indiana University’s Global Research Network Operations Center (GlobalNOC), a leader for 20 years in research networks, has expanded its service offering to include NetSage, a regional network monitoring system. Until recently, network owners interested in using NetSage had to be part of a National Science Foundation (NSF) project with the International Networks at IU (IN@IU) team in order to have a deployment for their system.

NetSage is a network measurement, analysis, and visualization service designed to address the needs of today’s regional networks, especially in regard to global science research. Funded by the NSF, NetSage is a collaboration between network and data visualization experts from IU, the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa, and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory/Energy Science Network to detect and resolve network performance issues across a region. [Read the full news article at IU GlobalNOC | News & Events]
