Best suited when you need eyes on servers and network traffic. For instance, for network traffic, based on NetFlow, you can see the different categories of traffic that use the most bandwidth. For example, cloud storage. Via SNMP, you get to see server resource usage, i.e., how much CPU is being used throughout the day.
