Packet Analyzer

with Network Performance Monitor


Fully functional for 30 days

Is it the application or the network impacting users? Dig deep now with packet analysis.

Poor end-user experience

Network and application response time both impact end-user experience. Determining which is the culprit requires a packet analyzer.

Unidentified network traffic

Identifying all of the traffic on your network is next to impossible when you don't know what to look for.

Unexpected traffic and data volume

Spikes in traffic and data volume may be an indicator of a potential security breach.

Quickly get to the root cause of poor end-user experience or network traffic anomalies

  1. Determine if it is the application or the network

    Analyze packet data and calculate network and application response time to determine if end-user quality of experience is impacted by the network or the application. SolarWinds' network monitoring software provides a Quality of Experience dashboard that features a quick-glance summary of a variety of network and application performance metrics.

    Analyze packets using a SPAN/mirror port and a dedicated software sensor installed on server or by deploying a sensor directly on an application server.

  2. Identify traffic by application

    Analyze and identify network traffic by capturing and analyzing packets. SolarWinds' network packet analyzer identifies over 1200 applications, calculates application and network response time, data volume and transactions, and categorizes traffic into types, volumes, classification, and risk.

Packet Analyzer definition

A packet analyzer intercepts, logs, and analyzes network traffic. By analyzing the header and payload, one can identify, classify, and troubleshoot traffic by application type, source, and destination

With SolarWinds we have seen improvements in availability and reductions in time-to-resolution. We are able to rectify problems much faster, before users start complaining."
