Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer (NTA)

We searched for a Netflow analyzer to help operations to understand how data are going through network.
As we already use SolarEWnds (NPM, NCM, ...), NTA was a logical solution as it reuses all polled devices.
  • Good integration with other SolarWinds modules (NPM, NCM, IPAM, etc.).
  • Easy to install and use.
  • Auto discover of interfaces.
  • Troubleshooting is not easy in cases of NTA problems.
  • Static interface.
  • Not easy to cross data between nodes.
  • When integrated in existing SolarWinds installation, easy to use.
  • Even if expensive, it significantly reduces diag times.
As usual, SolarWinds is providing very good support. New features are added in nearly every version and we got good support when hitting problems with some devices.

Do you think SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer (NTA) delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer (NTA)'s feature set?


Did SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer (NTA) live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer (NTA) go as expected?


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


It's the natural solution if you already have SolarWinds modules as it's requiring NPM.
Even if it's not really user-friendly you can add alerts for traffic, QoS support must be increased to be useful.

Easy to use for network diagnostic or traffic knowledge even without a real-time console.
