Do you know how your network is being used? Can you see if your bandwidth is being used for good or evil? What about identifying those traffic spikes caused by marketing forwarding around the latest YouTube video or the occasional lunch-hour Warcraft tournament over in support? Did you know that you already have the resources on your network to answer all of these questions and more? All you need to do is unlock the power of NetFlow!
Never fear we have the key... we've developed a free tool that shows you exactly what's on your network. SolarWinds' newest free tool, Real-time NetFlow Analyzer, unlocks the power of NetFlow on your network, empowering you to shutdown the bandwidth hogs and ensure peak performance of your mission-critical network applications.
If you are new to NetFlow, you're going to love this powerful protocol developed by Cisco Systems to collect IP traffic information on routers. And, if you haven't already, it is easy to turn on flows on your existing Cisco routers to get deep visibility into what's happening on your network. We even have a free tool - NetFlow Configurator to help you remotely configure NetFlow v5 via SNMP on supported Cisco devices, so you can get started immediately.
Once you've turned on NetFlow, Real-time NetFlow Analyzer captures and analyzes this data in real time to show you exactly what types of traffic are on your network, where that traffic is coming from, and where it is going. Finally, you can take the guesswork out of diagnosing network traffic spikes and troubleshooting bandwidth issues with this free NetFlow monitoring tool!
Real-time NetFlow Analyzer displays inbound and outbound traffic separately for granular analysis that makes problem diagnosis quick and easy. Even better, you can view the historical NetFlow data broken out by application, conversation, domain, endpoint, and protocol. That way you know exactly how your bandwidth is being used and by whom.
