Does AppGuru affect internet bandwidth or latency in any way?

AppGuru should not cause network performance issues for the following reasons:
  • Unlike firewalls or other on-wire devices, AppGuru does not open nor inspect packets in-line.
  • Unlike RMM (Remote Monitoring and Management), AppGuru does not use agents, so it does not need to be installed on workstations and servers.
  • AppGuru listens to mirrored traffic (looks for app usage); it does not require deep packet inspection.
To improve performance we recommend installing AppGuru (Analyzer and Capture components) on the Active Directory server.
