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

Building visibility into your network environment is key. Have Juniper, Cisco, or Huawei NetStream devices? Need to support a variety of flow protocols? What about Netflow v5 and v9? Network team harassing you about NBAR2 because "We encrypt our traffic!" or "We use non-standard ports for our applications!!" (silly security engineers)? Then NTA is the product for you.Honestly, if you need to pull back the curtain on network performance, putting NPM and NTA together is a beautiful and effective combination

  • The details of the traffic are especially good if it shows statistics in real time. It is very important to analyze it at the same time
  • It lets you know who is watching within the network so it is ideal for a thorough monitoring of resources
  • It has an intuitive interface of easy operation that allows the operation of the same without problems

Cons

AppNeta

  • 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.

  • The UI can be a bit clunky -- but that's compared to the other products in the Orion suite. Most vendor tools are atrocious!
  • NTA data is a beast. Not running SQL 2016 with support for in-memory OLTP? You can't use the latest version (4.6)
  • If you are running an environment of any size, you will need separate instances of SQL *or* a hefty server to support a shared SQL instance

We have had good support on other products but have not had to call for support on NetFlow. So, I figured it would just as good.

Alternatives Considered

AppNeta

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

We used Nagios previously and also the Nagios Netflow Analyzer. It did a good job, but SolarWinds Network Traffic Analyzer is far superior and far more feature-rich in terms what you get. The planning it provides and alerting easily outweighs what Nagios Netflow can give. It is heavier in terms of deployment, but its understandable given the features.

  • We were able to determine what sites consume the most bandwidth and provide more to them.
  • We are now in the process of laying our own fiber to get better speeds.
  • The alerts let you know where to begin troubleshooting issues.
