Network performance management is not solely dependent on network devices and servers, and is highly reliant on network traffic congestion. NetFlow Analyzer add-on, ManageEngine’s bandwidth monitoring and network traffic analysis solution, simplifies network management by saving network admins the trouble of juggling multiple tools to manage network traffic health. It is a flow-based add-on that supports a wide range of flow formats and devices. The NetFlow Analyzer add-on monitors your network to provide in-depth visibility into your network devices, interfaces, applications, users, bandwidth usage, and network traffic, making bandwidth management easier and more efficient.

The network traffic management edge:
How the NetFlow Analyzer add-on complements OpManager

The seamless addition of NetFlow Analyzer add-on to ManageEngine OpManager makes network monitoring easier by centralizing a comprehensive view of your network’s bandwidth utilization, network traffic trends, and your entire wireless network into a single console.

Monitor your network in real time

Monitor network traffic and bandwidth usage by application, protocol, IP address groups, and more with multi-vendor support. Create custom dashboards with traffic charts, bandwidth trend reports, heat maps, and top lists.

Automate every step of the reporting from generation to scheduling

Utilize NetFlow Analyzer’s advanced reports and graphs to detect every activity, device, interface, and application among other network elements in your network. Forecast bandwidth utilization trends, and plan bandwidth capacity trends and IT requirements to avoid being caught off guard.

Troubleshoot faster with timely alarms

Set alerts with multicriteria-based thresholds to detect traffic anomalies and usage violations to avoid alarm floods. Receive alerts via chat, SMS, email, alarms, traps, and tickets so you're enabled to provide prompt resolutions.

Navigate the cause of failure

Identify bottlenecks, manage and track top talkers, conversations, and IPs. Monitor your entire wireless network including controllers, SSIDs, access points, and QoS and gain an overview of your distributed network from a single, centralized console to ensure you're always aware of network traffic activities.

Network Security and Forensics

Monitor and analyze bandwidth usage trends and behavioral patterns to proactively detect anomalies in network traffic, and navigate the cause of bottlenecks, generate real-time forensic analytics on interfaces, apps, and conversations with intuitive reports that quantify who is using your network, how much, and why.

Optimize your network traffic

Build, audit, and optimize QoS policies to ensure smooth access and functioning of media traffic and mission critical applications. Track application traffic and usage, and receive detailed statistics about applications running in your network. Map custom applications and set policies to shape app traffic, and deny or limit access to bandwidth hogs.
