SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer Review

Simple to use, provides valuable insight into traffic usage, and generates comprehensive reports

What is our primary use case?

I was using this solution in my previous company for four years and am trying to bring it to my new organization. We are currently running a PoC.

What is most valuable?

The GUI is simple and easy to use.

The monitoring is perfect, showing you the details for the utilization of resources and network bandwidth.

It provides the ability to track users to see who is generating higher amounts of traffic and what the person is doing.

The notifications are helpful.

At the end of the day, you can get very comprehensive reports showing you everything that is happening in the domain.

What needs improvement?

The licensing should be improved. I don't like the licensing because it is geared to the interface and not the device, which increases the cost.

The Atlas module that is used for building the network map is very bad.

I would like to see improvements made to the dashboard configuration.

They should provide more templates for the vendors.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with SolarWinds for more than four years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is a stable system and very reliable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is very good.

How are customer service and technical support?

This solution does not have support available in the Middle East region. The relationship is through the partners but this is insufficient because they are not highly skilled and cannot really support you.

Whenever you approach the SolarWindws team, they normally have fixes that come out with every new release.

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

The price of this solution is exceptional. 

What other advice do I have?

This solution does an excellent job but nothing is perfect. There are some things that need to be improved.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
