CA Network Flow Analysis Review

The custom report is the most valuable feature. I wish it had a user-Friendly dashboard.

What is most valuable?

The custom report is the most valuable feature. Because network flow analysis is a very common tool, I can easily find a free NFA tool through the internet. However, the only difference between them and this solution is how they present the data that they receive.

How has it helped my organization?

With daily reports, our customers can easily find out the utilization of their bandwidth, protocols, source IP and destination IP. Those elements are importance references for them to make a monitoring report.

What needs improvement?

I wish it had a user-friendly dashboard and not just a huge list of router/switch information.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have used this solution for over a year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Sometimes the custom report jammed in the MYSQL database. We had to ask support to help us clean the table.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I did not encounter any issues with scalability.

How is customer service and technical support?

I would give technical support and rating of 5/10.

Which solutions did we use previously?

I have compared this solution to different tools.

How was the initial setup?

The setup was pretty easy, like most NFA tools. There is no difference between them in this respect.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not evaluate other options.

What other advice do I have?

You need to have basic knowledge about NetFlow. Otherwise, it will be a pain if the user encounters a defect.
