Bandwidth Monitoring and Traffic Analysis

ManageEngine NetFlow Analyzer is a web-based bandwidth monitoring tool that evaluates NetFlow , sFlow , J-Flow and other flow data in real time and analyzes network traffic. NetFlow Analyzer gives an overview of the network bandwidth, the bandwidth usage of company and network traffic patterns.

The reports on the real-time usage of the bandwidth tells immediately which applications, conversations and hosts are causing the highest data traffic. In this way, it is easy to take appropriate measures to optimize the use of bandwidth.

FAQ's

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Purpose of NetFlow Analyzer?

NetFlow Analyzer is a web-based bandwidth monitoring and traffic analysis tool that uses Cisco NetFlow®, sFlow®, cflowd®, jFlow®, IPFIX®, NetStream®, and Cisco NBAR® to provide detailed reports on network traffic. NetFlow Analyzer helps IT administrators answer the who, what, when, where, and how of bandwidth usage.

How is NetFlow different from traffic analyzers like MRTG™?

MRTG and other such equivalent tools provide information that is limited to interface statistics. Such tools cannot give application-level details such as hosts, protocols, and conversations, which are an inherent part of IP traffic. NetFlow traffic statistics are much more detailed, offering in-depth and fine-grained bandwidth analysis.

What are the different versions of NetFlow available?

So far 5 versions of NetFlow have been released. Version 1 is the original version, while version 5 is the standard and most common NetFlow version deployed. Version 7 was released specifically for Catalyst 6500 and 7600 Series switches. It is similar to version 5, but does not include information on AS, interface, TCP flag, and TOS. NetFlow version 8 was introduced to reduce resource usage and includes a choice of eleven aggregation schemes. Version 9, the most recent version, is a flexible, extensible format with support for MPLS, Multicast, and more.

NetFlow Analyzer currently supports NetFlow versions 5, 7, and 9.

Is Cisco the only vendor supporting NetFlow?

NetFlow technology was invented by Cisco, and Cisco IOS devices offer NetFlow compatibility. There may be other vendors offering NetFlow support on their devices. However, NetFlow Analyzer has been tested to support NetFlow-enabled Cisco devices only.

Can I install and run NetFlow Analyzer as a root user?

NetFlow Analyzer can be installed and started as a root user, but all file permissions will be modified and later the user cannot start the server as any other user.

How do I install NetFlow Analyzer?

Being the Swiss Partner of ManageEngine, Kidan is responsible for aiding with professional services, such as installing, implementing, configuring, training, and supporting the company to ensure an effective on-boarding NetFlow Analyzer.

To make it even better, Kidan even provides advice on top of it all!
