For owners of Meraki MX-series security appliances, there is now a simple answer to this question: Meraki Insight.
Meraki Insight is a licensed software upgrade to the Meraki Dashboard which significantly extends an administrator's visibility into the end-user experience. Through Meraki Insight, they can diagnose issues involving WAN congestion, server processing times, authentication delays, unresponsive cloud apps and more. This means true end-to-end oversight of a network, from backbone to app, all in one single easy-to-use dashboard interface.

In many cases, they will be able to detect and adjust for performance issues before users even call in to report problems!
Meraki Insight also extends Meraki's famous data-gathering capabilities. Metrics on application performance are available along with all other metrics, allowing for long-term tracking and predictive action.
