The software installation is fairly painless. In order to get the netflow information to SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer (NTA) from the field switches/devices, a handful of configuration lines are necessary (maybe 10 - 15 lines) in the field devices. The configuration statements can be easily looked up on the internet. Once the data is flowing to SolarWinds, the Netflow section of the web page auto-populates with the usage data, in a fairly robust set of KPI's. The dashboards are very intuitive to use. However, they are limited, in the out of the box settings, to the top 5 or 10 of variables (top protocols, top endpoints, top bandwidth usage endpoints, etc...). Customization is available, but is not as intuitive to set up. So, for a quick glance at the top 10 utilizers of bandwidth, or the top 5 protocols being utilized, very intuitive and easy to use.

As far as rating for usability is concerned I would give 10/10 as NTA is very easy to use. All you need to do is install that module and ask network Team to configure the Netflow towards Server IP. [The] rest is pre-configured and reports are pre-built. Moment you receive the flows from Network all you will have is information about traffic.

It works well overall but the couple of items I mentioned earlier. Also the interface where you click on a device and then the links underneath are not very intuitive.

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.

The visuals help the IT team members understand the volume of data they are examining and make determinations of what actions are to be taken.

I feel the product is at the upper end of what I'd expect to pay. I also have found the hardware requirements to be somewhat high (to be fair-we run multiple Solarwinds apps on the server).
