ReplicationProfitap NPB feature deep dive
Replicate traffic to multiple monitoring and security tools
Traffic replication is the process of making multiple copies of data and forwarding them to different locations, such as NPM/APM tools, network security tools, and data storage.
Benefits of traffic replication include improving the availability of data and increasing the speed of data access.
Use case examples:
- Monitoring (tapping): send the traffic to both its intended destination and monitoring/analysis/storage systems.
- Redundancy: send the traffic to multiple network paths to avoid single points of failure and reduce the risks of downtime
