NEC developed the "Invariant Analysis Technology" , a technique that detects the cause of unexpected failures. This patented technology, developed by NEC Laboratories America, Inc., has been incorporated into NEC's "MasterScope Invariant Analyzer," which detects hard-to-find errors and performance failures in just 1/10 the time of conventional technologies.
Main features of the "MasterScope Invariant Analyzer" are as follows:
NEC's performance analysis technology detects a wide range of irregular behaviors that are difficult to locate, known as "silent failures," through regular failure surveillance functions that enable early detection and prevent further failure.
Graphs and maps provide visualization of factors that cause silent failures and their impacted areas. The time required to diagnosis failures has also been significantly reduced.
Performance analysis is performed automatically, without special training or complicated settings, just by inputting performance information. This reduces the demands on system administrators.
NEC aims to begin distribution of the new product in North America and Europe in May, 2010. Asia-Pacific countries and Central & South American counties are expected to follow through NEC's global sales channel and with other local venders.
