Gigamon® Visibility Fabric™ Advanced Implementation (GVFAI)

Course Description Schedule Course Outline

Course Overview

This 2-day course is a follow on to Gigamon® Visibility Fabric™ Overview and Configuration (GVFOC), and goes into the next level of depth. It covers some of the more advanced features of the Gigamon solution, and enables you to take full advantage of the Gigamon product line.

Course Content

This two-day, hands-on course builds from the Gigamon® Visibility Fabric™ Overview and Configuration (GVFOC) course and teaches advanced topics to help you maximize your Gigamon deployment.The material in this course has been recently updated to include the latest capabilities and features from Gigamon.

You will learn how to leverage the advanced processing capabilities of the GigaSMART® engine to summarize and generate NetFlow statistics and MetaData from incoming traffic streams to augment visibility. Also, you will learn about offloading NetFlow Generation to the out-of-band Gigamon Visibility Fabric™ to eliminate the risk of expending expensive production network resources in generating these analytics.

With increasing demands for agility and automation in the IT infrastructure and with ever-changing threat patterns in the network traffic, there is a critical need to automatically detect, react and respond to these threats while also integrating visibility into IT operations management. This course teaches you how to use Gigamon's technology to gain visibility into your network traffic to prevent these threats.

You will perform extensive lab exercises that will show you how to use the key capabilities or features available from any H Series node as well as introduce you to the CLI and GUI interfaces. These capabilities and features are present without any additional licenses or special line cards. The labs emulate a typical working environment where you will add, remove and modify configurations rather than simply create them. You will also participate in two design case studies that walk you through the considerations for implementing a Gigamon solution in both physical and virtualized environments.
