SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer features and reviews of 2020

SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer network monitoring software helps organizations to collect IP traffic information and monitor network traffic.

Overview

SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer network monitoring software allows users to analyze, monitor, and collect Cisco Netflow, NetStream, IPFIX, J-Flow, and Flow flow data. Network engineers can quickly identify the IP address groups, protocols, and applications that consume the most bandwidth. This gives them better visibility of their network traffic.

The software also allows organizations to analyze flow data, giving them an overview of network traffic volume and flow. More so, they can identify where network traffic is going to or coming from and how much traffic they are generating.

SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer comes with a NetFlow collector that functions as a router with Netflow features for generating NetFlow records. The tool exports these records from the router and gathers them using NetFlow collectors. Users can also pinpoint the cause of network issues using cross-stack network data correlation. Also, the software can be implemented in different sizes of networks for better insight into bandwidth usage. Plus, it can also be programmed over minutes, days, or months, which allows users to gather short-term and long-term data sets.

Additionally, this software collates traffic data, transforms it into the relevant format, and presents it to users using a web-based interface. Even more, SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer allows users to monitor network traffic patterns and bandwidth down to the interface level, Plus, users can highlight IP addresses of top talkers as well as collect and analyze flow data from various Cisco vendors.

SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer also allows users to customize alerts for only specific top talkers on their network to reduce their usage's impact with time. Moreover, organizations can track app traffic generated from source IPS, destination IPS, and specific ports. The tool also allows users to analyze network protocol and traffic using custom overlapping IP address groups.

Product Details

SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer network monitoring software supports bandwidth monitoring. Users can monitor bandwidth usage by IP address group, protocol, and application. They can also have access to both IPv6 and IPv4 flow records.

With this feature, users can also monitor IPFIX, Huawei NetStream, sFlow, Juniper J-Flow, and cisco Netflow flow data. This helps them identify the protocols or apps using the most bandwidth.

More so, the software converts the data to easy-to-interpret tables and charts. These represent who is using the network, how it is being used, and what it is being used for.

SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer network monitoring software supports application traffic monitoring. This allows users to set up alerts for when application traffic suddenly vanishes completely, decreases, or increases. This will enable them to react quickly whenever there is an unusual fluctuation in application traffic.

Additionally, users can customize alerts to get notified whenever a device stops sending flow data, helping them remediate the issue efficiently.

SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer network monitoring software allows users to analyze network traffic. Network engineers can study network traffic patterns over minutes, days, or months by drilling to network elements.

With this feature, the software collates traffic data, interprets it into relevant formats, then presents it to users in a web-based interface where they can monitor network traffic.

SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer network monitoring software offers users VMware vSphere distributed switch support. Users have access to flow data from VMware vSphere switches. Also, IT experts can remove east-west traffic on individual hypervisors, avoiding service impacts when they move workloads.

SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer network monitoring software gives users a performance analysis dashboard. This enables users to carry out the PerfStack cross-stack network data correlation. Also, this feature allows users to identify root causes using drag-and-drop network performance metrics quickly. These metrics are displayed on a single timeline, allowing for fast visual correlation across all users' Netflow analytics and network data.

SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer network monitoring software supports advanced application recognition. With NBAR2 support, IT experts can identify the categories and apps consuming the most bandwidth. Even more, users have visibility into HTTPS and HTTP traffic without needing extra spanning ports or probes.

SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer network monitoring software offers users customizable network traffic reports. They can deliver, schedule, and create in-depth bandwidth and network traffic analysis reports. Also, the software helps users review historical data to discover the highest bandwidth usage and change policies for improved management.

Furthermore, NetFlow Traffic Analyzer allows users to generate reports on their traffic patterns with about a minute granularity. Even more, users can deliver, schedule, and create in-depth bandwidth and network traffic reports with just a few clicks.

SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer network monitoring software supports WLC traffic monitoring. Network engineers can monitor and analyze Wireless LAN controller traffic to stay updated on clients and applications using bandwidth on their wireless network.

SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer network monitoring software allows users to assess traffic data on Cisco Meraki interfaces. The tool allows users to visualize the traffic flow on their Cisco Meraki Z and MX series interfaces. Consequently, this will enable them to monitor bandwidth usage in their Cisco Meraki wireless environment.

SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer network monitoring software supports CBQoS policy optimization. Organizations can measure how efficient post- and pre-policy traffic levels for individual class maps. This way, they can find out if QoS policies are functioning as they should. Also, businesses that depend on e-commerce, VoIP, and other cloud-based apps can confirm the smooth passage of prioritized traffic through their network.

SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer network monitoring software allows users to identify malformed or malicious traffic flow. Users have visibility into malicious traffic using port 0 monitoring. Also, with TCP/UDP monitoring, users can easily identify traffic intruding port 0.

SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer network monitoring software can be integrated with SolarWinds User Device Tracker. With the user device tracker, users can identify bandwidth hogs reducing network speed.

Recap

SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer network monitoring software helps organizations to boost their NetFlow monitoring capabilities. It allows users to monitor their network, avoid bandwidth hogs, and identify traffic patterns. Also, the tool helps users to troubleshoot faster, improve efficiency, and get better visibility into malformed or malicious traffic flows. More so, the tool integrates seamlessly with Orion Platform products like Network configuration manage and network performance monitor.
