OneTouch AT Network Assistant

All network administrators would be able to find a use for this tool in their environment. It allows people from outside of the networking industry to capture data required for a quick diagnosis. Things that typically would require me to be onsite for diagnosis can now be handed to Tier 1 techs for data collection and reporting. Since moving toward cable certification, we've experienced an almost unbelievably low level of cable failure. When it does happen, though, there is no guessing. Our Fluke units tell us what the problem is and where.

I could see this product being useful in most environments, but you could probably get by without it in small offices. For a medium to large business with dozens or hundreds of networking devices it's a must to have a product such as this. If something were to fail down the line or have issues, without something like this you may be fishing for the problem for a long time.

Pros

OneTouch AT Network Assistant

  • Identify the exact switchport a given line is plugged in to.
  • View the length and viability of any category or fiber optic cable.
  • It acts as a premade packet capture device, simple enough to walk someone through deploying while I'm offsite.
  • In the event LLDP based identification of a port fails, it has the ability to blink a switchport allowing for manual identification.

  • The level of customization possible with Network Bandwidth Analyzer is very valuable. Rather than being stuck with a "one-size-fits-all" presentation, an administrator can easily create customized views, reports, and alerts so that users can have a more tailored view of the data provided by Network Bandwidth Analyzer. This has the effect of making the tool more attractive to the end user.
  • The NetFlow Traffic Analyzer piece of Network Bandwidth Analyzer provides the details on bandwidth usage on the network. More than knowing how much bandwidth is being used, one is provided with detailed information on how that bandwidth is being used. This provides invaluable information for capacity planning and even certain forensic tasks faced by the network engineer.
  • The ability to produce network maps provides an easy way to create an attractive and functional NOC/SOC view of the entire network. Both technician and the occasional passerby can quickly determine if there are issues to be addressed. The ability to customize a map with background images and custom icons and stencils can make these maps really pop.

Cons

OneTouch AT Network Assistant

  • Price. There is no other device on the market with the AT's feature set. Fluke knows it and charges accordingly.
  • The addition of bluetooth or a USB slot for a keyboard would be handy for certain functions.
  • The PC based remote connection process is old, and is one of the places where the OS shows it's age.

  • 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

If you have time to learn it and know what you're doing, it can work for you. I don't have the time or patience to spend a lot of work on it due to my many job roles.

Haven't had the need to open any trouble tickets with SolarWinds for NTA yet. We have been able to solve any of our issues that have arisen using the online resources from SolarWinds in their Customer Portal or on the THWACK user community. THWACK has a better following than any other product we currently use with lots of people more than willing to help with your questions.

The training offered by SolarWinds is some of the best out there. They have several different videos that go into great detail from initial setup to advanced configurations. In addition to the view at your own pace video, they also have live training for customers that focus on a single product and you can ask questions with the folks who develop the software. I have had good success with their live sessions and getting questions answered.

Alternatives Considered

OneTouch AT Network Assistant

There is little to no competition in this field. If you need to do any type of advanced network monitoring/identification (or use 10G) then you're going to own a Fluke. While Ideal does have a couple of devices that appear to be the closest competitor, the differences are still extremely evident.

For the needs of the company in which we monitor multiple departments, we have multiple branches and a centralized database to which we need permanent access, we have to look for a complex, robust and as an accurate option as possible for the administration of the bandwidth and this option ended up being SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer.
