Protecting your high-value security and performance monitoring equipment is vital for long-term cost management. With the traffic shaping feature (sometimes generically referred to as "rate limiting") of IntellaView’s HyperEngine, traffic can be limited to a user-specified average rate by buffering packets that exceed that rate. The buffered data is released at a steady, even flow so it remains at or below the target bandwidth of the appliance to avoid tool oversubscription.
assign your tools the proper bandwidth
Traffic shaping is a tool-saving practice when certain appliances are not designed to handle traffic above a specific rate for extended periods.
Each HyperEngine service engine can buffer from 3 to 160 million packets, depending on packet size, shared across all connections to ensure your existing tools are never overburdened or oversubscribed — even as throughput increases.
User sets a specified rate
Apply different rates to different appliances
Data is buffered until the set rate can be met
Each service engine can buffer from 3 to 160 million packets, depending on packet size
Buffers are shared by all connections using the service
