Excessive bandwidth usage in one part of your network that can impact the entire network's performance. Bandwidth problems can even affect business-critical services and lead to network downtime. If you're simply buying additional bandwidthto mitigate this issue, but you may be only treating a symptom of a bigger problem.
Before buying more bandwidth, you should consider using a network bandwidth manager to:
But how, you might ask?
With NetFlow Analyzer's bandwidth management system, you can:
Identify top talkers in your network by application, protocol, QoS, and conversation to understand bandwidth usage patterns. NetFlow Analyzer's traffic summary dashboard and bandwidth usage reports will provide all the information you need for in-depth analysis of traffic consumption.
If you don't keep track of application growth and new conversations, you won't know if sudden increases in traffic need to be controlled or not. Capacity planning reports in NetFlow Analyzer allow you to follow bandwidth capacity trends and understand the cause of bandwidth usage growth.
Identify traffic consumption by application, and check if non-business traffic is affecting the performance of critical services. Drill down to application-level traffic to identify excess bandwidth usage.
Apply QoS policies and access control lists (ACLs) to reduce traffic consumption by unwanted sources and applications.
NetFlow Analyzer makes monitoring bandwidth usage easy, and it works in both Windows and Linux environments. Start analyzing your network traffic and stop unwanted bandwidth usage in your network using this best-in-class bandwidth management software.
"NetFlow Analyzer is an affordable solution for bandwidth monitoring. We have been using Bandwidth Analyzer to manage our branch and central office bandwidth requirements effectively. It was able to correlate the vast NetFlow data exported from our Cisco routers and provide us with rich reports that showed us the exact bandwidth utilization based on the type of traffic on the network. NetFlow Analyzer is an ideal choice for enterprises that need to detect network bottlenecks and provide a superior network connectivity experience to their end users." -Milan Modi, Area communication engineer, DHL
