Alteon is Radware’s next-generation application delivery controller (ADC) and the only load balancer that guarantees application SLA. It provides end-to-end local and global load balancing capabilities for all Web, cloud and mobile-based applications.

Using the Alteon load balancer, you can process your critical application tasks and direct your sessions on different servers, so as to avoid annoying downtime and to deliver optimal application performance to end-users. This means that any issue impacting the load-balancing services - eg., a blink-and-miss unavailability of the load balancer, insufficient throughput/compression capacity, resource-starved real servers, a hardware failure etc. - can adversely impact application performance, and consequently, scar user experience with applications. To avoid this, it is imperative that administrators closely monitor the Radware Alteon load balancer and capture issues in its performance, much before end-users do! This is where eG Enterprise helps.

eG Enterprise provides a dedicated monitoring model for Radware Alteon load balancer, which monitors every layer of every tier of the load balancer, and proactively alerts administrators to potential performance owes.

This discussion elaborates on how eG Enterprise monitors the performance of the Alteon load balancer and what metrics it collects.
