Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Netflow Traffic Analyzer

We use SolarWinds Netflow Traffic Analyzer (NTA) across all our Cisco routers and switches on premise in our primary office location as well as our call center locations. It helps us monitor and track down any possible network issues such as congestion, packe tloss, speed issues, down equipment etc. It has been very valuable over the years in that regard.
  • Intuitive GUI
  • Easy to add equipment to the product
  • Ability to assign where equipment is actually located on a map
  • Sometimes the GUI gets very slow and the server needs restarted
  • Notifications are sometimes a little lagged for unknown reasons
  • Ability to customize the GUI more would be nice
  • Helped us stick to our SLA with our end users
  • Helped track down network performance issues with our call centers
  • Helped save employee time and money by finding issues quickly without having to make guesses
We haven't tried any other NTA products, this was the first one we tried and bought and still works for us after all these years. No need to look for anything else as far as I'm concerned.
SolarWinds support has really been on point. Every time we've had an issue they were responsive, able to get them on the phone very quickly, and have always seemed very knowledgeable and friendly and helped fixed our issues quickly. We use some of their other products and have been happy with their support for all of them.

Would you buy SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer (NTA) again?

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.
