Drill down into network bandwidth usage problems

Run network traffic reports for in-depth bandwidth analysis

Handling unplanned downtime can be challenging for any network administrator. Regardless of the severity of the problem—whether it's a slow network connection or a serious network outage—the right network diagnostic tool can save your organization from huge losses. Looking for a way to find the root cause of network problems and optimize bandwidth usage? NetFlow Analyzer's advanced bandwidth reporting, featuring intuitive pie charts and graphs, simplifies troubleshooting for you.

NetFlow Analyzer comes with a rich set of bandwidth analysis reports that help in analyzing bandwidth usage based on application, user, and conversation. Granular details on bandwidth usage give better insights into the types of applications that are using bandwidth, and also help you detect network congestion and drill down to the root cause. With the Custom Search Report, you can search for specific traffic by its associated application, protocol, host, or IP.

Network bandwidth analysis reports help you:

Track top talkers and conversations in your network

NetFlow Analyzer provides real-time network utilization reports so you can learn which hosts are using the most bandwidth across an interface. Using the Consolidated Report, you can drill down to see the applications that consume the most bandwidth, and how much bandwidth is utilized by each source and destination. This report helps you keep track of bandwidth-intensive applications and makes it easy for you to determine the top bandwidth users across a WAN link.

Compare bandwidth usage at different time intervals

NetFlow Analyzer's Compare Report gives you better insight into bandwidth speed, volume, and utilization, as well as how many packets were transferred at different times. These bandwidth analysis reports help you better understand bandwidth usage patterns and see how traffic has grown over weeks or months.

NetFlow Analyzer's Custom Search Report lets you drill down to any particular application or source address that's causing problems and view detailed conversations. This will help you identify any unexpected spikes in traffic, as well as their root cause.

Generate bandwidth analysis reports, choose the time range that you'd like to see interface information for, and export reports to PDF or email them to your manager. NetFlow Analyzer can automatically run your reports and send them monthly or even weekly in case you forget to schedule them.

For the purpose of these reports, bandwidth is defined as the aggregated data—for the selected protocols—that is transferred from one side of the bandwidth link to the other. These reports are intended to give a general picture of bandwidth usage on various network segments over a specific period of time.

Benefits of network bandwidth reporting with NetFlow Analyzer:

  • Enhanced data storage
  • Instant bandwidth reports
  • Customizable reports
  • Schedulable reports
  • The ability to export reports
  • The option to resolve an IP address to a host name

Enhanced data storage

NetFlow Analyzer stores both aggregated and non-aggregated (raw) data. Aggregated "top 100" data is stored forever, lending itself to Capacity Planning Reports and long-term reporting. Non-aggregated data can be stored for up to one month to facilitate granular troubleshooting down to the minute.

Instant bandwidth reports with Report Profile NetFlow Analyzer's Report Profile saves the bandwidth reports you access most so you can pull them up quickly. Identify top talkers, top applications, top protocols, and more in a single click.

Custom reports

NetFlow Analyzer's custom reports let you view bandwidth usage for a specific host, application, or conversation. Correlate information to see who used up how much bandwidth, when it was used, for what application, and for how long.

Schedulable reports

Automate reporting with NetFlow Analyzer's report scheduling option. Receive reports daily, weekly, or monthly, right in your inbox.

Exportable reports

Export bandwidth reports as PDF or CSV files and save them for future reference.

DNS-resolvable IP addresses

All bandwidth reports provide an option to resolve source and destination IP addresses to a host name or website. This allows you to instantly view bandwidth usage statistics from a particular website or host.

Why NetFlow Analyzer?

  • Helps you understand your network traffic and daily bandwidth utilization better with easily customizable graphs and reports.
  • Supports technologies such as Cisco NBAR2, WLAN controller monitoring, deep packet inspection, CBQoS, IP SLA, and more.
  • Saves troubleshooting time with advanced forensic reports.

NetFlow Analyzer, flow-based network bandwidth monitoring software, integrates NetFlow, sFlow, JFLow, and many other collection and analysis engines. Its bandwidth monitor collects, correlates, and analyzes NetFlow exports to provide in-depth visibility into traffic patterns and monitor bandwidth usage across each WAN link. With NetFlow Analyzer, there is no need to monitor bandwidth usage with hardware probes, and it is suitable for both Windows and Linux environments.
