ManageEngine NetFlow Analyzer is a comprehensive network traffic monitoring solution that provides a wide range of bandwidth and network traffic monitoring features. A web-based network traffic monitoring tool, it runs on both Windows and Linux systems and analyzes flow data to track network traffic. NetFlow Analyzer gives you insights into your network's bandwidth usage by providing metrics for your traffic volume, speed, packets, top talkers, bandwidth utilization, network anomalies, and more.
NetFlow Analyzer's NetFlow Generator tool passively captures and converts raw network packets into NetFlow packets to help you monitor devices that don't support flow. With this feature, you can now monitor and analyze network traffic from your Windows and Linux devices as easily as you would monitor your flow-based devices.
With the free NetFlow Generator tool, you can add and monitor your devices with just a few clicks without having to spend hours configuring them. The tool comes with a plethora of reports and customization options that help you monitor Linux network traffic and analyze the data to give you complete visibility into your network.
NetFlow Analyzer's key real-time Linux network traffic monitoring features include:
The Linux network traffic monitoring functionalities in NetFlow Analyzer help you monitor bandwidth usage by device, interface, application, or user. With its in-depth bandwidth usage reports, it helps you learn, in real time, who is using your network and why. NetFlow Analyzer monitors and analyzes bandwidth usage patterns and network traffic trends to provide detailed network traffic and forensics reports that make bandwidth management easier and more efficient.
NetFlow Analyzer recognizes, classifies, and monitors applications with various technologies like NBAR and CBQoS. With its comprehensive Linux traffic monitoring reports, NetFlow Analyzer helps you gain insights into application usage, and application growth trends to help you anticipate your bandwidth needs. It helps you optimize your network bandwidth to ensure your business-critical applications are prioritized.
NetFlow Analyzer supports devices from Cisco, 3COM, Juniper, Foundry Networks, Hewlett-Packard, Extreme, and other leading vendors. It also supports all top flow formats, such as NetFlow, sFlow, jFlow, IPFIX, Netstream, and AppFlow.
With its advanced Continuous Stream Mining Engine technology, NetFlow Analyzer serves as an advanced Linux network traffic monitoring solution. The Advanced Security Analytics Module helps you identify network anomalies and security threats like DDoS attacks, port scans, and zero-day intrusions. This helps you identify and troubleshoot network issues before they affect your end users.
Linux network traffic monitoring is the process of capturing and analyzing your enterprise’s Linux network traffic.
Gaining insights on network traffic is important in measuring bandwidth usage and managing it. Analyzing your Linux network traffic can help identify bandwidth bottlenecks, top talkers, and other network issues that can affect network performance.
Most Linux network traffic monitoring tools read the /proc/net/dev file to get traffic stats, or use the pcap library for packet capture and then calculate the total size to estimate the traffic load. A Linux network traffic monitoring tool is typically a time-consuming command line tool that require a great deal of preconfiguration. In spite of the complexities, most Linux network traffic monitors are simple tools that support a few basic metrics, reports, and report filters.
