Network Bandwidth Monitor

'Who is monopolizing my bandwidth?' - maybe you utter that same frustrating question over and over again in your daily life. You are complaining about a slow network and you are in need to identify the root of the problem. Keep a close eye on bandwidth usage with this network traffic monitoring software. OpUtils network traffic monitor helps you determine how much bandwidth your devices and interfaces are using. 

Bandwidth Monitor

Network bandwidth monitor tool of Oputils software provides a real-time network traffic of any SNMP device. It uses SNMP to fetch the bandwidth utilization details of a network interface and thus the name SNMP bandwidth monitor. The bandwidth utilization of the device displays a comparison of the individual traffic of its interfaces. Bandwidth utilization tool display real-time data and helps prevent network strain.

Real-time Network Traffic Monitoring

The Real time bandwidth monitor tool is ideal for identifying bottlenecks related to bandwidth within the network. You can monitor the network traffic utilization/ bandwidth usage both at the interface level and at the device level.The features of Bandwidth usage monitor includes the following:

Real-time Bandwidth Monitoring

Network bandwidth monitoring software provides the current bandwidth usage of each SNMP-enabled interfaces that are configured. The graphical representation of the bandwidth usage monitor gives a clear visibility into how much bandwidth was consumed on a specific network interface.

Agentless Bandwidth Monitoring

The traffic monitoring tools uses SNMP to retrieve the bandwidth utilization details from the network devices. Hence, Network traffic management can be used in monitoring bandwidth usage of any network device, such as Routers, Switches, Gateway Servers, and so on, that supports SNMP. In network traffic monitoring tool, the collected data is correlated and presented in the form of graphs and tables. Network traffic management does not require any hardware probes / agents to be deployed to get the bandwidth usage details in traffic monitoring network.

Historical Bandwidth Usage Trends

Bandwidth utilization tool trends shows the usage patterns and network traffic trends across a day, month, and a year. With such statistics, the administrators can analyze how bandwidth is used in the network, and decide if an increase in bandwidth is required in bandwidth monitoring software.

Threshold Based Alerting

The administrators can set thresholds for bandwidth utilization and get alerts and emails when the threshold value exceeds the prescribed traffic utilization limits with the help of real time bandwidth monitor. This helps in quicker isolation of the problem in the network and hence quicker action. The Bandwidth monitor tool measures and generates alerts whenever the network bandwidth utilization criteria is exceeded. The bandwidth monitor tool can be configured to notify these alerts through email. 

Threshold Based Alerting

Internet Usage Monitoring

Monitoring the interfaces of the gateway/router in network traffic management will provide the internet bandwidth used across a day, month, and a year in traffic monitoring tools. These statistics helps in analyzing the internet usage pattern of the enterprise. This helps to verify whether the Service Level Agreements (SLA) are met in network traffic monitoring. 

Alert Cleanup Policy

Specify the maximum number of Alerts to be stored in the database, the default being 2000. On deleting the older alerts, one has an option to save it as a csv file for future reference in case of OpUtils SNMP bandwidth monitor.

Bandwidth Monitoring Reports

The Bandwidth Monitoring tool, in addition to the bandwidth utilization reports, also provides the bandwidth usage trends on an hourly, daily, monthly, and yearly basis for the following parameters of a network interface:

  • Current report

    The Network bandwidth utilization reports can be exported to PDF, XLS and CSV formats in network traffic monitoring software. To export the data, click the Export link from the top-right and select a format to export. This will export the data that is currently being viewed in the Bandwidth Monitor tool. The network traffic usage details from the Summary view, the details view, and the comparison view can be exported to the desired formats.
