NetBrain

In Cisco environments (especially IOS and IOS-XE) NetBrain looks nearly perfect. The network is loaded with heaps of information you would never document if you would have to do it manually. The information is there but you can decide what is visible at first glance and for what information you want to zoom in a bit more on the map for.There are still some problems with the automatic documentation and path discovery with virtual L2 firewalls.Although the implementation of the documentation of Cisco ACI is just in the beginning but, if finished, it's probably a great tool to have an end-to-end view of paths from the legacy network into SDN.

The capacity planning was a big help in our company as we grew the number of connected locations. Grow or die is pretty much the business model of today but that growth is only as good as the network it travels on. Being able to recommend appropriate network requirements is a big deal in our line of business.

Pros

NetBrain

  • It automatically updates your network documentation.
  • You can search for devices even if they are no longer operational (by a lot of attributes).
  • It can simplify your troubleshooting by showing you the L2/L3 path a packet would take.
  • It can automate and document the steps of troubleshooting tasks to get more information from one level of support to the next.
  • The support team of NetBrain is very fast and very helpful.
  • Heaps of information in the maps.

Cons

NetBrain

  • Not all devices are integrated with the same quality.
  • Not all steps are self-explaining.
  • The updates were difficult (but thanks to the help of support no real problem).

  • At this point, I don't have any suggestion for improvements.

Alternatives Considered

NetBrain

We used NetViz and Microsoft Visio before.NetViz was a great tool at its time but it's not the best solution anymore and Microsoft Visio is good in a lot of things but more of a Swiss Army knife than a network documentation tool.We had a look at NetTerrain which looked like a good documentation tool and would have given us the advantage of importing our old NetViz documentation.The main disadvantage with all of these tools compared to NetBrain is that the documentation needs to be done manually.

Return on Investment

NetBrain

  • Network automation is up to date.
  • Quicker failure discovery and resolving due to the path discovery.
  • Less time spent on documentation.
  • Much more details in the documentation.

  • As I mentioned in a previous statement, the capacity planning was the big thing. In our line of business, speed is everything. Customers hate to be slowed down so having the appropriate network connections is a must.
  • Anomaly Detection with the threshold based alerting has made our network team more proactive in stopping things before they can really affect the company.
  • Productivity with the use of monitoring conversations and amount of used bandwidth has helped weed out the works versus the campers.
