The interface on SolarWinds is much better and the time to deploy is much faster with NTA than other products. The ability for junior staff to quickly pick up on the tool is outstanding and it seems to take less expertise to use this product. The output display is easy to interpret and the reporting is very easy to decipher for management.

SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer (NTA) is our tool of choice for our organization due to the sterling reputation and reliability of the Network tracking tool. Our Organization has developed a total dependence on the SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer (NTA) product based on the variety of features, resources, and capabilities it delivers pertaining to the complete oversight of network traffic activity.

SolarWinds NTA is much more focused and targeted to what our needs are compared to the alternatives. Tivoli and SCOM just don't have the active monitoring that this purpose-based software allows. The reporting is better, and the single pane of glass aspect, along with their other products, make this the right choice for our requirements.

[SolarWinds] NTA is vastly inferior to Palo Alto's built-in monitoring tools. The only benefit [SolarWinds] NTA has over Palo [Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewalls] is historical link utilization and reporting.

It's overall a little slower than Arbor peakflow, but offers good functionality in terms of visualizing flow data. It would be great if the DB could be open for other visualization tools so flow data could be visualized using BI tools

  • SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor (npm)
SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor (npm) has a stripped-down version of NTA where you can see some data about network traffic; however, if you need to take a deep dive into exactly what is going on, you need SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer (NTA). We have also used dashboards from various sources, such as a Meraki Dashboard or a Cisco Firepower Dashboard, and they compare very well to SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer (NTA).

SolarWinds NTA is easy to set up and configure. It provides the information needed to monitor your network traffic without much customization. Intelligent Alerts and Reports can be configured to Monitor Network Traffic.

SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer compared to Wireshark and PRTG Network Monitor beats it by just the simple interface. Though all are manual setup, NTA takes it a step further with graphs and reports that analyze the data for you. In comparing to Extrahop from a bandwidth comparison, Extrahop wins but Extrahop is a lot more than just a bandwidth monitoring and cost.

I must say no other tools stands against SolarWinds NTA module, as it is easy to use tool with complete feature set, with almost all types of flows supported. Not just this, you will have rich information-based dashboard (fully customizable), out of the box reports, and Alert which is missing in other tools and vendors.

Our previous product did not offer traffic flow, bandwidth information or the ability to give us device information. With SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer we can monitor traffic coming in to our network and traffic going out of our network. This has allowed for greater security for our district and end users.

We utilize NetScout in conjunction with NetScout. NetScout gives a finer grained insight into traffic, while [SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer] (NTA) gives a better quick glance at the entire organizational structure.

SolarWinds Netflow Traffic Analyzer is a user-friendly and much cheaper alternative than some of its competitors such as ExtraHop. It integrates well with the rest of the SolarWinds suite of tools and it's a lot easier to use.

SolarWinds is the only tool I've used for netflow traffic analyzing. I can't say that I've used any other types of products to even monitor our networks. SolarWinds has always been the tool I've used for any network insight needed from any organization. I am a huge fan of using this product over others that I can't compare anything else.
