AppNeta

AppNeta is well suited any place where there are customer facing applications where speed/efficiency determines the customer perception of business service.

SolarWinds Netflow Traffic Analyzer

Deploying NTA on a large scale would be too bandwidth intensive for us, if we were to deploy it globally. However, it has its place in monitoring our corporate network for network congestion/bottlenecks, not to mention policy/security violations. We have used it a handful of times when we had problematic sites and it assisted us in the troubleshooting process.

  • Easy to use and customizable interface.

Cons

  • AppNeta could bundle all of their applications together. We received a demo for TraceView which allows insight on specific DB & API calls which is very valuable, but was not part of our original agreement/pricing structure.

  • Using it without having at least SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor (NPM) can be a pain.
  • There is an initial learning curve to be able to fully use the product.
  • The product is very resource intensive in larger environments.

Alternatives Considered

We currently use Nagios/GroundWork and Cacti to perform network monitoring. AppNeta's UI is far superior.

To be perfectly honest, I've never used a comparable product to NTA. As a matter of fact, I have never used anything other than SolarWinds monitoring products at all. That could be a negative thing to some, but consider the fact that my company has never found a need to switch to another product
