Protocol Analyzer

The advanced protocol analyzer

To meet the operational efficiency expectations of modern networks, organizations must provide smooth performance and a flawless user experience. To eliminate congestion issues, network admins must ensure that network traffic does not exceed the threshold and that bandwidth is utilized only for the right business purposes.

How do you know which element is slowing down your network? Because anything could be the root cause, including an application overutilizing your bandwidth, an increase in the number of simultaneous large data transfers, or even an attack. With the ideal protocol analyzer tool, you will gain visibility and detailed insights into bandwidth utilization for every node and troubleshoot issues faster.

The protocol analyzer: Your key to achieving prime performance

Protocol analyzers are tools that help you gain insights into network packets as they travel through the network. In general, protocol analyzers are used for measuring how a device is performing and its security.

With a protocol analyzer, you can find the source and destination of a particular type of traffic. You can also detect irregular traffic, which can be due to either high bandwidth utilization or security attacks. By carrying out this root cause analysis, you can manage risks effectively and increase the efficiency of your network without further investments.

NetFlow Analyzer's advantages as a protocol analyzer

Perform real-time protocol analysis

Know how your organization's users are using your network by viewing network utilization with respect to interfaces, applications, ports, and protocols. With our protocol analyzer software, you can monitor sFlow, J-Flow, AppStream, and NetStream devices; solve any bandwidth bottlenecks; and ensure streamlined network performance.

Network Protocol Analysis

Gain granular visibility into network traffic with our network protocol analysis tool

Drill down to get in-depth insights on who is using your bandwidth and how with granular, minute-by-minute visibility. You can see the time of a particular traffic spike and confirm if it is a typical business request or a potential hacking attempt. This helps you diagnose security attacks or the root cause of network traffic congestion and resolve that issue.
