After you deploy a server sensor to the application node, the sensor monitors packets to and from the node, identifies the application or the URL, and analyzes the packets for QoE metrics, such as response time or traffic volume.

  1. Click Settings > All Settings in the menu bar.

  2. Click QoE Settings > Manage QoE Packet Analysis Sensors, and click Add Packet Analysis Sensor.


  3. Select Server, and click Add Nodes.


  4. Move the Windows nodes that will host the server sensors to the Selected Nodes panel, and click Add Selected Node.
  5. Assign and test credentials for each node, and click Submit.
  6. Click Add Nodes and Deploy Agents. QoE auto-discovers the applications on the servers.

When the sensors are successfully deployed, a message is displayed in Notifications.

  • Deployment may take some time and will run as a background process.
  • QoE automatically chooses settings, including the interface to capture traffic data and limits to memory and CPU, during deployment. You can change these settings once deployment is complete by selecting the sensor and clicking Edit.
  • You can confirm the deployment status on the Manage QoE Packet Analysis Sensors page.

To specify manually which applications to monitor, see Monitor applications for QoE. Applications are automatically detected and added by default.
