ActionPacked! Networks Announces Availability of LiveAction 2.0 Software for Managing Cisco Quality-of-Service


ActionPacked! Networks, a leading provider of intelligent software for managing Cisco quality-of-service (QoS), announced today that version 2.0 of its LiveAction software is now available for download from the ActionPacked! web site. LiveAction’s QoS capabilities in version 2.0 include visual creation and editing of QoS policies, end-to-end flow visualization and real-time QoS monitoring for analyzing traffic performance before and after QoS policies are applied, routing visualization and policy-based route configuration for troubleshooting and optimizing critical paths, and IP SLA for proactive QoS performance monitoring and testing within a visual, all-in-one management environment.

Following the company’s mission to provide an all-in-one solution for Cisco QoS, ActionPacked! engineers added new quality-of-service related features including built-in rules for viewing and configuring Cisco Hierarchical Queuing Framework (HQF) policies, automated alerts for pre- and post- QoS events, and the ability to view hardware QoS settings and statistics for managing end-to-end QoS environments. The new version also includes a new web-based portal for generating and distributing over 30 different network status reports and graphs.

“Version 2.0 provides significant enhancements for our customers including support for Flexible NetFlow and NetFlow v9 and the industry’s only complete visualization of IPv6 traffic flows across a live network,” said ActionPacked! founder Nelson Kanemoto. “We’ve added dozens of other new NetFlow features including viewable MAC source and destination addresses and VLANs, ASA support, and NetFlow configuration for Cisco Catalyst 6500 switches and Cisco 7600 routers. We also added historical tracking for IP SLA, and our new html reporting interface makes it easier for network engineers to consolidate, analyze, and share with each other the breadth of information that LiveAction extracts from the network.”

“Our software takes a holistic view of network quality that extends beyond just QoS monitoring,” said Kanemoto. “We use Cisco Routing, IP SLA, NetFlow, and QoS monitoring and configuration in combination with each other to create a more complete picture and to establish greater awareness of what is really happening in the network. It’s like having the power of an extra CCIE right at your fingertips.”

LiveAction 2.0 was originally demonstrated to the public during Cisco Live 2010 in Las Vegas prior to its official release for shipment this week. To download a free 14-day trial of LiveAction 2.0 software, visit
