The ThousandEyes software analyzes performance of local and wide-area networks and the internet. By utilizing its world-wide system of software and agents, it provides insights into all manner of cloud, enterprise and endpoint services that can let network, application, and cloud teams work together to quickly isolate and resolve problems, said Ty Amell, CTO at Cisco AppDynamics.

When it bought the company, Cisco said it would embed ThousandEyes technology in a variety of its products including its AppDynamics application performance, SD-WAN, WebEx and Meraki families to enhance visibility across the enterprise, internet and the cloud. That integration has begun in earnest.

For the Catalyst 9300 and 9400 Series, Cisco has added a ThousandEyes agent for the switches’ IOS operating system. From the agent, customers can monitor performance of applications and network components on campus and branch-office networks.
