Sinefa works by deploying Sinefa probes in the network. Sinefa Probes collect information about the network and send the results to the Sinefa App in the cloud. You login to the Sinefa App to view reports and perform system configuration.
Sinefa Probes are available as hardware or software. Software probes can be virtual appliances or linux software. Sinefa Probes are typically installed inline between the switch and firewall/router. Depending on your network topology and how you plan to use Sinefa, there are several deployment options.
Sinefa App Server
The Sinefa App is where users login to view reports and configure the system. The system is hosted by default in a public cloud (and is also available for self host in a private cloud). Login to Sinefa App at app.sinefa.com.
Sinefa's application reporting requires the Sinefa Probe to monitor traffic by being deployed in-line (or by monitoring data off a span port).
See Setup Application Visibility article for more information.
Network Quality Scoring (NQS)
Sinefa's Network Quality Scoring require 2 or more Sinefa Probes. Tests are run between Probes and results are send back to the Sinefa App. A Sinefa Probe must be deployed at each location you want to run tests. You can also run quality tests against Sinefa's Public Probes.
