NetFlow Analyzer is a NetFlow, sFlow, JFLow (and more) collector, analyzer and reporting engine integrated together. With close to 4000 enterprises using NetFlow Analyzer for an in-depth visibility into their network traffic and its patterns, NetFlow Analyzer continues to earn trust of more users by giving business knowledge of real-time network behaviour and how traffic impacts the network's overall health.
Which version of NetFlow Analyzer is right for me?
There are three versions of NetFlow analyzer catering to the Small/ Medium and Large enterprises.
What problems does it solve?
One of the key issues in network management is knowing the genuineness of traffic and to monitor bandwidth. Capacity considerations affect investment decisions, policies, usage and consequentially the business as a whole. NetFlow Analyzer gives detailed information on network bandwidth usage pattern for traffic analysis, capacity planning and making policy decisions. By drilling down into the specific applications, users, ports or communication network managers are able to determine the exact source of spikes and bursts and therefore able to proactively monitor, control, and take informed decisions.
What benefits does it offer?
In-depth visibility with top hosts, applications, DSCP, TCP_Flag and AS information for every link and for configurable IP Based departments and divisions, Fine Grained Application Categorization and Recognition using Cisco NBAR, Proactive alerting and Scheduling of reports, Privilege-based user access, billing/chargeback, reporting on Cisco CBQoS and much more. Simply put, NetFlow Analyzer helps you with network traffic monitoring with easy-to-understand reports for a better understanding of the bandwidth utilization in you network.
