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.

We have used it to test our SDWAN bandwidth during our initial rollout. The WAN Killer does just that, and you can see how much traffic your wan links can take. It has also been helpful in identifying open ports that we need to lock down to ensure we are achieving compliance with SOX, HIPAA, and PCI. This is a tool for network engineers, I can't see use cases for non-network related tasks.

Very easy to use and intuitive. Just be careful with the WAN Killer...it does what it says.

SolarWinds NPM and NCM use a lot of the tools available in the toolset. This is a nice combo of the two with a little bit of IPAM thrown in. I would say the toolset is geared more toward the field engineer, that will be doing work that may sever communications to the rest of the network. That said, we keep finding new uses for it.

Return on Investment

NetVizura NetFlow Analyzer

  • 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.
