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

I find the SolarWinds Netflow Traffic Analyzer would be well suited for businesses small and large. It might not be appropriate for businesses with very few employees that do little networking

  • Easily spot when nodes are down.

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.

  • Building custom reports isn't that easy.
  • Database maintenance doesn't always run and will fill the database.
  • Real time traffic reports aren't always available.

Alternatives Considered

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

I have used Cacti in the past. The user interface for Solarwinds Netflow Traffic analyzer is a little easier to work with. Easy to make real time traffic charts from each node
