  • Easily identifiable network issues with latency, availability, and usage through graphic displays.
  • Identifies traffic resources through net flow captures to see where the bandwidth is being consumed to allow for future planning.

  • The licensing could be made a little easier and less painful.
  • Advanced alerts to be accessed through the web GUI would be an improvement.
