We use NetBrain to monitor our global network environment. It is used by the Network Team to help troubleshoot or proactively prevent issues such as bottlenecks, discards, errors or dropped packets and help with the problem-solving daily. The Service Desk monitors via NetBrain 24/7 to react to issues and alerts that arise.
  • Identify throughput issues, discards, dropped packets, etc.
  • 24/7 real-time monitoring
  • Detailed, easy to read logs
  • Proactive issue resolving
  • Ease of setup
  • Like to be able to send logs to SIEM
  • Dual links to SDWAN show as 1 circuit, would like to see both
Great for our large global environment. Works well with our legacy and newer equipment. Ease of install was exciting compared to other products we POC'd. Less of a learning curve when training Teams on how to monitor and troubleshoot while in production. Service desk were able to capture the logs and load into our ticketing system with ease.

NetBrain is part of our organization over all network management framework solution that is always offered to our customers for enhanced Network issues troubleshooting and auditing. When ever there is an outage in the network or network team wants to quickly validate the root cause we offer NetBrain to use as a single and effective tool.
  • Network Issues Troubleshooting
  • Visualizing the root cause using color coding
  • out of the box runbooks available
  • Deep Network Fault and Performance Monitoring
  • Historical data caching and reporting
  • Out of the box integrations with standard tools
Although there are many products in the market that provides very simple and easy fault and performance monitoring metrics in notification format, reports and emails etc However NetBrain is a specialized tool when it comes to network issues troubleshooting for various kind of scenarios such as multicasting issues in a site can be detected live and bottle neck can be highlighted by a simple click of troubleshooting button.

We had three major reasons to search for a new documentation tool:
  • First, our old network documentation tool was not anymore supported.
  • Second, our network documentation was far behind the reality as with increased workload and decreased manpower we just had no time to document.
  • Third, we wanted a network documentation tool, not a swiss army knife solution that normally is weak in network documentation.
The decision to buy NetBrain was made to have a new network documentation tool that updates the network documentation automatically.
  • 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.
  • 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).
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.
