Using Orion NTA for Detailed Traffic Analysis

The Orion NetFlow Traffic Analyzer (Orion NTA) module can be used to view traffic flows throughout the network, including your optimized WAN links. Orion NTA allows you to view realtime and historical trending data by protocol, IP address, and application across different network links.

Orion NTA helps network administrators answer questions the following questions:

  • Which applications are consuming network bandwidth?
  • Which users are generating the most traffic?
  • Which IP addresses are my top talkers?
  • Should I install a WAN optimization device and why?
  • What is the historical trend of bandwidth over the WAN and within my LAN?
  • When my network is running hot, what is going on?
