The Traffic Shaping Engine Adds Value
To Your Investment in the Novell Ecosystem
|Bob Mahar, the creator of the Traffic Shaping
Engine for NetWare, has developed solutions for Novell customers for 20 years.
But he also manages networks, just like you. So you know the
main focus of the TSE is stability and reliability. The TSE has a
6 year track record of exceptional stability, even under extreme conditions.
It is infrastructure quality, designed for years of uptime, just like
the rest of your network equipment.
The TSE's underlying technology is massively scalable. A single commodity
Intel based server running NetWare can apply distinct data rates to millions
of flows. For example, one wireless phone provider needed to assign
each of its 680,000 subscribers a different level of IP service. This
same technology can be used as the primary bandwidth system for any size
|The Traffic Shaping Engine for NetWare is
a transparent bandwidth management package that works with all NetWare based
services. You can regulate the amount of bandwidth consumed by BorderManager,
GroupWise, ZenWorks, NetWare based technologies such as iPrint, iFolder,
and NetStorage. The TSE also offer several utility features which
can help you monitor, manage, and troubleshoot these services.
|If you already have NetWare, the TSE enhances
your investment by adding powerful bandwidth management, monitoring, logging,
and troubleshooting capabilities. You can use the TSE to manage any
traffic passing through or generated by your NetWare server. The TSE
is the ideal tool to rate limit or prioritize applications and services.
Tame bandwidth hogging backups, ensure web based services get required
bandwidth, and log any network traffic in and out of the server.
If your NetWare server acts as your router to the Internet or WAN, it can
serve as the point of management for that traffic, eliminating costly hardware
based rate shapers, like Packeteer's PacketShaper.
The TSE is also a complete toolkit for troubleshooting network issues with
your NetWare platform. The TSE has even been used by Novell customers
obtain critical evidence to assist Novell engineers in fixing difficult to
resolve issues. The TSE can monitor and audit traffic,
continuously record / capture traffic to disk, perfom ECB level logging,
real-time ECB leak detection, spin detection, and other features.
The TSE is also able to filter and inspect traffic before TCPIP "sees" it,
offers activity based filters, and many other technical capabilities.
|Branch Office is a great solution.
But managing the bandwidth needs of multiple locations and web services can
be a challenge. The TSE can be used in the central office to manage
the bandwidth demands of eDirectory, LDAP, RSYNC, backup and restore, and
|GroupWise is a robust and resilient collaboration
tool - immune to most viruses and scalable from the smallest office to the
largest enterprise. But like similar products, with great power comes
increased bandwidth demands. The TSE can be used to limit or prioritize
GroupWise related traffic, including POA to POA traffic as well as SMTP.
|Using BorderManager for VPN or Proxy is great,
but the TSE provides the missing piece to the puzzle: bandwidth management.
