SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer
The licensed SolarWinds NTA (NetFlow Traffic Analyzer) helps IT managers by enabling cross-vendor monitoring of their organization network’s traffic flow logs, identifying traffic patterns and avoiding bandwidth hogs. This licensed solution complements SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor (NPM) and helps optimize bandwidth assigning by better understanding of network capabilities, who and what bandwidth consumption is and expanding your network traffic analysis capabilities. Track and control application or protocol bandwidth usage patterns by month, day, or minutes by drilling down into any network element supporting a variety of network traffic standards (NetFlow, sFlow, J-Flow, IPFIX, and NetStream).
SolarWinds NTA License supports monitoring of Cisco Meraki wireless controllers and access points (MX and Z series interfaces) along with other third-party network devices that can export traffic streams running in your environment, routers, switches and firewalls.
SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer (NTA) is a powerful NetFlow and bandwidth monitor that lets you collect data from continuous streams of network traffic and turn those raw numbers into easy-to-interpret charts and graphs. Easily quantify how your network is being used, by whom and for what purpose.
The level of your Network Performance Monitor (NPM) installation governs licensing for SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer (NTA). For instance, if you have a SL250 NPM license, your SL250 SolarWinds NTA license also corresponds to that license.
The levels of the licenses must coincide when upgrading licenses. If you upgrade an NPM SL250 license to SL500, for instance, you also need to upgrade your SolarWinds NTA license to SL500. There are various SolarWinds NTA license types available globally.
- SL100 License: Up to 100 nodes and 100 interfaces.
- SL250 License: Up to 250 nodes and 250 interfaces.
- SL500 License: Up to 500 nodes and 500 interfaces.
- SL2000 License: Up to 2000 nodes and 2000 interfaces.
- SLX License: Virtually unlimited number of elements.
Track the performance of cloud services
When delivering cloud services, continuous network availability is important. Any network or service speed issues can impact cloud applications and have a negative impact on business. SolarWinds identifies problems with network congestion, bandwidth hogs, and unauthorized application usage.
Monitoring Bandwidth Usage
Monitor Cisco NetFlow, Juniper J-Flow, sFlow, Huawei NetStream, and IPFIX flow data to identify the applications and protocols consuming the most bandwidth.
Network Traffic Analysis
Analyze network traffic patterns over months, days or minutes by breaking down each network element presented in an intuitive web-based interface.
CBQoS Policy Optimization
With the licensed Solarwinds NTA License Measure traffic effectiveness before and after policy by class, map to determine if QoS policies are working as designed.
Identify malicious traffic streams
Enhance security with visibility into malicious or malformed traffic with TCP/UDP monitoring of port 0 traffic to identify disruptive traffic.
WLC Traffic Monitor
Monitor Wireless LAN Controller (WLC) traffic to easily control which applications and clients are using bandwidth on your wireless network.
Customizable Network Traffic Reports
Create, schedule and deliver detailed network traffic analysis and bandwidth reports to identify peak bandwidth usage and historical data.
When can you use this licensed solution?
Built on the Orion platform as an add-on to NPM: NTA offers the ability to purchase and fully integrate additional easily scalable network monitoring modules.
Meraki Wireless Device Monitoring: Visualize traffic flows on Cisco Meraki MX and Z Series interfaces to better control bandwidth usage in your Cisco Meraki wireless environment.
Bandwidth monitoring: Avoid bandwidth hogs and use IPv4 and IPv6 flow logs to identify the applications and protocols that consume the most bandwidth. Monitor Cisco NetFlow, J-Flow, sFlow, NetStream, and IPFIX flow data.
Application Traffic Alerts: Respond quickly when application traffic changes abnormally.Set alerts to be notified when a device stops sending streaming data so you can troubleshoot the issue efficiently.
Performance Analysis Dashboard: Accelerate root cause identification by dragging and dropping network performance metrics onto a standard timeline for instant visual correlation across all your NetFlow analytics and network data.
Avoid lost income and productivity. With other SolarWinds Orion products, PerfStack allows you to correlate cross-stack network data with application, database, compute, storage, and end-user performance metrics.
Advanced Application Discovery – Identify which applications and categories are consuming the most bandwidth for better visibility into network traffic with Cisco NBAR2 support.NBAR2 support gives you insight into HTTP (port 80) and HTTPS (port 443) traffic without the need for additional probes, e.g. B. expansion ports are required.
Customizable Network Traffic Reports: NTA can help you review historical data to identify peak bandwidth usage and customize policies for better management and optimized spend. Create, plan and deliver detailed network traffic analysis and bandwidth reports with just a few clicks.
CBQoS Policy Optimization: Measure the effectiveness of traffic before and after the policy against class mapping to determine if the QoS policies are working as designed. Whether your business relies on VoIP, e-commerce, or other cloud-based applications, NTA helps confirm that prioritized traffic is flowing smoothly through the network.
Identify malicious or malformed traffic streams: Quickly identify intrusive traffic through enhanced security with visibility into malicious or malformed port 0 traffic using TCP/UDP monitoring.
WLC Traffic Monitor – In today’s mobile world, it’s imperative that your wireless network runs smoothly. With WLC network traffic analysis, you can easily see what is using your wireless bandwidth.
