Using a network analyzer, IT professionals can take advantage of the flow technologies built into routers and switches, allowing them to easily monitor, solve, and troubleshoot network bandwidth-related problems. Network analysis tools enable you to capture data from continuous streams of network traffic and convert those raw numbers into charts and tables that quantify exactly how your network is being used, by whom, and for what purpose.
A network analyzer captures and analyzes NetFlow, J-Flow, and sFlow data to help you find what types of traffic are on your network. Flow technology can be leveraged to get insight into network bandwidth performance and traffic patterns with real-time visibility into whom and what are consuming network bandwidth.
A network analysis tool provides greater visibility by collecting and analyzing NetFlow, J-Flow, and other flow technologies to monitor your network, discover traffic patterns, and avoid bandwidth hogs.
Learn how to enable NetFlow v9 on Cisco routers with custom flow records.
NetFlow-enabled routers and switches collect IP traffic statistics on all interfaces and export that data as NetFlow records. A NetFlow data collector then processes the data for traffic analysis and presentation in an easy-to-understand format.
SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer (NTA) collects traffic data, correlates it into a useable format, and then presents it to the user in a web-based interface for monitoring network traffic.
