Return on Investment

  • SolarWinds Netflow Traffic Analyzer has saved me more than once in my career. I am so pleased to be able to drill down into the details of the traffic flows. Bad actors in the network tend to stand out in the traffic capture graphs.
  • SolarWinds Netflow Traffic Analyzer has allowed my team to plan for the future; you get a great view of how much data you push in an hour, a day, a week, or a month. We have a very focused service to the community that needs to be up all the time and perform without issue. I have leveraged many SolarWinds products to get the network and resources fine-tuned to meet the needs of this wonderful environment.
  • The overall business has improved due to the implementation and management of great monitoring and reporting tools such as SolarWinds Netflow Traffic Analyzer. Each year the IT team makes adjustments and improvements to the environment. We use to have to react; we are much more proactive now and know when there is a problem in the environment before the end-users.

  • No negative impact on us
  • But we are using other SolarWinds products and that has worked well.
  • The alerting features have really helped us with our network. It works great but you will have to put some work into it to tailor your network.

  • It alerts me whenever the network is down. I know this before the end users are aware of it. That helps maintain user satisfaction.
  • Bandwidth analysis can help me find out where the pipe is used most and help me make decisions to improve network performance.

  • Be prepared to answer lots of questions. When people see the data in NTA they are going to want to know why App A is talking to App B. Be ready to explain!
  • Hand the keys to the NTA kingdom to the network team. They will thank you. Everyone wants to have friends on the network team, right?
  • Be prepared to invest in some significant compute and storage performance to keep up with your NTA monitoring
  • Running the latest firmware for your network gear is (often) required to take advantage of all the flow-monitoring. You upgrade regularly, right??

Return on Investment

  • The administration of the bandwidth of the organization has been improved considerably allowing to detect leakage of the same in unwanted applications
  • It has been allowed to limit the access and the consumption of bandwidth in departments that used the same in activities external to the company
  • As a negative aspect, the limitations that have been detached from the analysis of consumption statistics generated discomfort in part of the personnel to whom the bandwidth consumption was limited.
