SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer Review

Easy to deploy, reasonably-priced, and everything can be managed in one place

What is our primary use case?

We use this product to analyze network traffic flow. For example, we analyze the traffic that is using a lot of bandwidth to determine which application or information stream is responsible.

What is most valuable?

Everything is done in the Orion Suite, so you can look there to find dashboards and reports.

The integration with other SolarWinds products is good. It works well in combination with the other tools.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see more artificial intelligence capabilities.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using SolarWinds Netflow Traffic Analyzer for about four years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This is a very stable product.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability-wise, it is fine.

How are customer service and technical support?

SolarWinds is a traditional software company, which means that you can get help from them.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

SolarWinds is a great product with a lot of possibilities, but also, it is not the Holy Grail. None of these solutions are. The suitability and choice of products depend on what is best for the customers. It's situation-based, and it depends on the requirements.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward and it only takes a couple of hours to deploy. It is easy.

What about the implementation team?

Our in-house team implements and deploys this solution. I also train people on how to use it.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing is reasonable.

What other advice do I have?

Overall, for my use cases, this product is very good and I recommend it. My advice is that if you decide to implement SolarWinds then they have a few other good products that you can use.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
