Detect network bottlenecks faster with NetFlow Analyzer

NetFlow Analyzer is a standalone network traffic monitoring software that uses flow-technologies supported by multiple vendors like Cisco, Juniper, HP, etc. It provides real-time visibility into the network traffic patterns and bandwidth consumption by interfaces, applications and hosts. With more than 300 pre-defined applications and protocols, it helps administrators to identify the traffic usage by bandwidth intensive apps and prevents the network from congestion.

NetFlow Analyzer helps to resolve a number of bandwidth-related problems. Such as network slowdowns during business hours can be critical. There could be multiple reasons why this could happen. NetFlow Analyzer lets you drill down to bandwidth usage by each applications and gives you details of complete conversation in the network.

Start monitoring in minutes with easy to configure flow export option in NetFlow Analyzer. The built-in scripts enables you to export all the major flows in 3 simple clicks without the need of logging to a router.

Here are just a few of our standout features:

  • Built-in templates to start exporting flows from GUI
  • Simplified standalone network traffic analysis tool
  • Security analytics reporting with network anomaly detection
  • Bandwidth usage billing for charge back
  • Customize reports to get better visibility of conversation-level details
  • Detailed AS view reports

6 reasons why you should consider NetFlow Analyzer

Built-in templates to start exporting flows from GUI

Before using any monitoring tools, one of the biggest tasks is to set it up based on your requirement, which is really time consuming. In-build templates in NetFlow Analyzer help to quickly set up and export flows such NetFlow, sFlow, jFlow etc. from your network devices. Instead of manually logging to the router or switch, pre-defined configlets helps you to discover the device from the GUI in 3 simple steps. The option to discover devices in bulk simplifies your automates the process of configuring the tool and saves time.

Enabling Flow

Simplified standalone network traffic analysis tool

NetFlow Analyzer is a standalone tool for bandwidth monitoring to identify top talkers in the network. Using NetFlow Analyzer dashboard, you can monitor bandwidth consumption at interface-level and identify the top talkers in the network. Drill down to know the top applications, protocols, top source and destinations by traffic. You can create and customize new dashboard to get a better picture of traffic summary. determine the applications that are consuming the most bandwidth, the top talkers in their network, and the volume of traffic at a particular time.

Security analytics reporting with network anomaly detection

Be it banks or an educational institution, securing the network against any security threats and attacks is always important. Moreover, continuous evolution of intrusion techniques in the network makes it important to monitor network security to get overall visibility of your network. With ASAM in NetFlow Analyzer, you can classify threats as problems and identify the top offenders and targets in the network.

Bandwidth usage billing for charge back

The bandwidth bills charged by your ISP depend on your plan as well as usage. Now you can create your own bill reports with NetFlow Analyzer. Generate monthly or quarterly bill reports based on your billing plans and bill generation cycles. These bills can be generated and notified periodically and used for accounting and chargeback.

Customize reports to get better visibility of conversation-level details

Whenever there is slowness or high utilization in the network, identifying the root cause of the issue is needed. Troubleshooting reports in NetFlow Analyzer such as search report and forensics are criteria based report that helps to drill down to the problem and identify the top applications, sources and destinations that are causing the issue. Customize the report on the defined criteria to understand the network behavior at that particular time.
