What is Cisco Nexus Dashboard Data Broker?

Cisco Nexus Dashboard Data Broker (NDDB) (formerly Nexus Data Broker (NDB)) with Cisco Nexus Family switches is a software-defined, programmable solution for packet brokering. Packet brokering is the aggregation of network traffic mirrored or copied using network/optical TAPs or Cisco Switched Port Analyzer (SPAN) for monitoring and visibility. In contrast to monitoring solutions based on traditional packet brokers, the Cisco NDDB packet brokering approach offers a simple, scalable, and cost-effective solution well suited for customers who need to monitor higher volume and business-critical traffic for security, compliance, and application-performance measurement. It also enables real-time traffic visibility with an event-based approach through northbound APIs.
