Network administrators have a lot on their plates. They're asked to not only track all the bandwidth consumed in the network, but also to maintain policies that allow smooth access to business-critical applications. While asking ourselves what we could do to make your job as a network administrator a little easier, we realized it's crucial that you are able to visualize what's happening in the network so you can understand and resolve whatever's causing network slowness.
NetFlow Analyzer is a flow-based bandwidth analysis tool that helps you monitor your network's bandwidth usage in real time. Flows exported to NetFlow Analyzer will help you understand which applications are consuming the most bandwidth, the top talkers in the network, and how much traffic is being used at any particular time.
NetFlow Analyzer also helps you identify and avoid bandwidth delays with customized reports that can search for specific bandwidth usage details such as applications, IP address, host name, protocol, and more. Apart from these bandwidth reports, NetFlow Analyzer's bandwidth monitor also lets you control bandwidth to limit the consumption of bandwidth-intensive applications. Even though keeping track of all the activities in the network and managing them is a herculean task for any organization, NetFlow Analyzer can make it easy.
Our flow-based bandwidth monitoring solution helps you:
NetFlow Analyzer classifies and categorizes traffic by applications, interfaces, protocols, and hosts to generate instant visibility into bandwidth usage. Find out when your bandwidth is high, which applications are using the most bandwidth, and who is using the most bandwidth with graphs. You can also drill down to see the top sources, destinations, and conversations for detailed analysis. With such granular detail, network troubleshooting and problem resolution take far less time than with traditional bandwidth analyzer tools.
NetFlow Analyzer's customizable dashboard includes a real-time traffic summary that helps you identify the top talkers in your network. With these bandwidth usage statistics you can get instant visibility into top bandwidth utilization by hosts, applications, and conversations across a specific interface. To drill down further, bandwidth monitoring reports for each interface show the current, average, and peak bandwidth usage patterns across each flow-enabled interface.
NetFlow Analyzer's bandwidth monitor allows you to view bandwidth usage over a period of time. Bandwidth monitoring trends show the usage patterns and traffic trends across a day, week, month, or year. With these kinds of statistics in hand, you can analyze how bandwidth is used in your network, and decide if you need to increase your available bandwidth.
NetFlow Analyzer allows you to set thresholds for excess bandwidth utilization, and notifies you via email and SMS when the threshold value is exceeded. Create alerts to learn about bandwidth hogs immediately and act quickly.
The consolidated bandwidth usage summary report in NetFlow Analyzer displays the overall percentage of bandwidth utilization and shows detailed bandwidth usage statistics for a WAN link. With customizable reports, you can check the bandwidth usage of any slow link and determine what is responsible for the slowness. You can also drill down to host, application, or conversation details during peak working hours with the bandwidth analyzer tool.
Why NetFlow Analyzer?
NetFlow Analyzer, flow-based network bandwidth monitoring software, integrates NetFlow, sFlow, JFLow (and more), and other collection and analysis engines. NetFlow exports are collected, correlated, and analyzed by the bandwidth monitor to get granular details to monitor bandwidth usage across each WAN link. With NetFlow Analyzer, there is no need to monitor bandwidth usage with hardware probes, and it is suitable for both Windows and Linux environments.
"NetFlow Analyzer is an affordable solution for bandwidth monitoring. We have been using Bandwidth Analyzer to manage our branch and central office bandwidth requirements effectively. It was able to correlate the vast NetFlow data exported from our Cisco Routers and provide us with rich reports that showed us the exact bandwidth utilization based on the type of traffic on the network. NetFlow Analyzer is an ideal choice for enterprise IT who need to detect network bottlenecks and provide a superior network connectivity experience to their end-users."
