Department wise Bandwidth Monitoring

Department wise bandwidth monitoring

In-depth network visibility!

With businesses getting more and more dependent on their corporate networks, you just can't afford to have any network incidents remain unresolved. In order to get a detailed knowledge on the particular department’s bandwidth utilization and behavior they have to be monitored as separate entities. ManageEngine NetFlow Analyzer is a tool that is smart enough to help you reduce network latency and allows you to analyze the root cause rapidly.

Scenario:

An enterprise has different departments namely Admin, Finance, Datacenter etc. As a network administrator, you want to know how much bandwidth is consumed by these departments separately, who are the top talkers, what are the top coversations and the applications that are using that bandwidth.  You also have to submit a report regarding this to the higher management. Further, you want to look out for any anomalous behavior and further drill down to find out the exact source responsible for the anomalous spurt in network traffic pattern and network bandwidth usage.

Solution:

ManageEngine NetFlow Analyzer has the ability to monitor department wise network behavior and carry out traffic analysis for those departments. These departments can be created by an IP group using N/W ,Range belonging to the particular department together and even a single IP address.

IP group creation

Once the required IP group are created, you can view all the groups' traffic in the interface view. You can see details such as In traffic, Out traffic and alerts, if you have set the alerts. These alrets can be very helpful if you have created a group containing all the critical servers. This way you can set a threshold alerts and proactively troubleshoot the incidents before they become serious issues in the your network.

Whereas you can see the top 5 IP groups by speed and utilization in the network snapshot page. This helps you to detect any incidents easily and troubleshoot the network incidents swiftly.

NetFlow snapshot

You can compare different IP groups using comparison reports. Not only do you get the utilization for the particular department but drilling down the IP groups gives an in-depth report about the particular IP group. The following details can be obtained for a particular IP group:

  • The traffic parameters - volume, utilization, speed and packets
  • Which applications were used,
  • Who used it - the source, destination, conversation
  • Qos

NetFlow IP groups detail

Finally, coming to the reports, these can be exported in CSV or pdf formats. And the reports can be scheduled to be generated at a particular period and delivered to your mailbox.

And your job is made easy!
