Threshold Based Alerting

Threshold-based alerts on NetFlow Analyzer

A network bandwidth monitoring tool isn't useful if a network administrator has to sit all day keeping an eye on all the network activities. The goal of monitoring is to help admins find the network communication, optimize it based on business requirements, and troubleshoot performance gaps without too much overhead and lost time. This depends on the IT administrator's awareness of their network behavior and how long it takes to resolve issues before they cause serious problems. This is where you need a complete network bandwidth alerting tool.

The proactive network bandwidth alerts management software

NetFlow Analyzer is a traffic monitor that monitors, analyzes, and reports on bandwidth usage, identifying anomalies and reducing MTTR. As a proactive traffic alerting tool, it provides end-to-end visibility into network traffic for every node, and lets admins know when the expected traffic pattern is not shown through alerts.

Key differences that can make your bandwidth management easier:

  • Ensures visibility into endpoints that under or overutilize your network.
  • Confirms if there's 24x7 network availability, and if the expected quality is met.
  • Prevents the network from facing outages or other serious impacts.
  • Simplifies troubleshooting with various alert management channels.
  • Notifies personnel on time via the configured mail address.

NetFlow Analyzer provides an easy-to-use and efficient UI to help you configure your software to foresee any upcoming issues and send alerts when incidents don't meet the expected levels. You can get notified of alerts instantly with automated Notification Templates and third-party integrations to facilitate easy issue resolution.

Different types of alert profiles
