It may seem like you don't have enough bandwidth, but it turns out a user is not following usage policy.
A spike in bandwidth usage by a single application can strain the entire network.
Sometimes bandwidth spikes, and you aren't sure of the exact cause.
Track application traffic arriving from designated ports, source IPs, destination IPs, and protocols.
Look at traffic patterns over months, days, or minutes to investigate the source of issues.
Deploy Solarwinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer (NTA) with a simple installation and configuration wizard. NTA acts as an sFlow collector to automatically collect flow data from any sFlow-enabled device monitored by SolarWinds network monitoring software to identify which users, applications, and protocols are consuming the most bandwidth.
With sFlow monitoring, you can easily monitor traffic arriving from designated ports, source IPs, destination IPs, and even protocols to spot potential problems quickly. Identify network-wide top talkers and applications that consume most of your network bandwidth and get to the root cause of issues.
SolarWinds NTA works as an sFlow analyzer, delivering a view of network traffic in an easy-to-use dashboard. Get a quick look at traffic patterns over months, days, or minutes. Drill down to see what happened to spot potential problems quickly and get to the root cause of issues.
