Gigamon GigaVUE

Gigamon GigaVUE

Fabric manager for intuitive single pane-of-glass orchestration and management of your visibility and analytics fabric.

GigaVUE-FM fabric manager simplifies and automates the configuration, management and operation of the Gigamon Visibility and Analytics Fabric™ (VAF) with unified visibility across physical, virtual and cloud deployments. With an intent-based policy automation approach, NetOps, SecOps and CloudOps teams are more efficient creating and deploying policies at scale based on their roles. 

A centralized, rich and customizable dashboard provides easy-to-use programmable APIs for ease of integration with tools and SDN controllers, role-based access control, end-to-end topology visualization, simplified workflows and alarm management to reduce mean time to resolution.

Available either as a hardware or a virtual, software-only appliance, each GigaVUE-FM instance can manage up to 1,000 visibility nodes across multiple locations and high-availability arrangements.


  1. Network Operations: Configure, direct and control traffic in the network to the relevant monitoring and analysis tools
  2. Network Security: Detect, react and respond to emerging threats using packet- or flow-based traffic analysis
  3. Private and public cloud: Automatically monitor and secure physical, virtual and cloud workloads’ traffic with ease
  4. InfoSec and NetOps: Identify, monitor and troubleshoot traffic hot spots to reduce mean time to repair (MTTR)


In dynamic and large-scale environments, the demand for more agility, automation and security across the IT infrastructure is increasing. GigaVUE-FM enables automation through the Gigamon VAF’s pre-defined python modules and Ansible as a framework to invoke GigaVUE-FM’s REST APIs. This enables the provisioning and management of the network traffic and data accessed by the Gigamon visibility nodes within your network. These APIs can be used by traffic monitoring tools, security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) tools, IT operations management and SDN controllers to:

  • Discover and collect inventory information of the VAF to be used for capacity planning or configuration management database (CMDB) analysis
  • Update traffic flows in the VAF for network traffic redirection or reduction
  • Program traffic policies to respond to new threat patterns, such as decrypting SSL/TLS, generating NetFlow or even blocking flows in the network
