Cisco Stealthwatch Scalability

For scalability, we probably want to see more NetFlow availability in other infrastructure products. We know it is there in routers, switches, and foundation. We know we can send it to the box. These are our current questions about NetFlow expansion: * What about firewalls? Where does Cisco stands today on NetFlow or in the future for firewalls? * Is there NetFlow on SPD? I don't know. * Are we doing NetFlow on ASA today? Our company is not. I do not think it is ready yet, or stable, and expanding NetFlow would be huge. View full review »

It is very scalable. You only have to purchase more licensing. As far as I understand, it can become as big as you want it to become and how many net flows you can afford. View full review »

Network Engineer at a government with 1,001-5,000 employees
We're doing scalability with Cisco Stealthwatch now. We have a 1 GB collector. We need a 10 GB collector. We're looking at upgrading. Cisco Stealthwatch has been good for us in the last couple of years. We had to purchase a whole new appliance for the 10 GB collector. As far as scalability for the one that we purchased, it was not that great. View full review »
Robert Ufer
Network Architect at Henry Ford health system
Scaling with Cisco Stealthwatch is a little bit difficult. At our scale, we need a lot of boxes to make it work. The hardware is something else. Some of the devices seem a little bit outdated in how they're built. For the scalability, other than some of the interesting things like the blow sensors, the actual analytics engine is solid so far.

Director Network Services at a consultancy with 1,001-5,000 employees
I think that the solution is very scalable. I believe that if we had to expand, we can easily add port collectors to our environment across the enterprise, and use the same management system to view the data. We have not yet had to scale the solution. View full review »

We only use it for certain subsets so we're not really dependent on how scalable it is. It does what we need it to do and that's all we could ever let it do. View full review »
Director9b3e
Director of Networking and Telecom at a healthcare company with 1,001-5,000 employees
We haven't scaled it out more than what our initial scale was. I am only just imagining adding more sensors. When we configured it initially, we really didn't have a fundamental knowledge of exactly what to do with our network and the infrastructure. So we kind of had to let it sit there for about a month or two to learn — or get used to — the network and the product. View full review »

Network Engineer at UC San Diego Health System
Based on what we've used it so far, it looks like it's scaling. We're growing and it's growing with us, so it's doing what we need it to do. View full review »
NetworkSddc6
Network Section Chief at a government with 1,001-5,000 employees
Scalability is where we're still finetuning the product. Initially, when we implemented Stealthwatch, we did a serious overkill on our flows per second. Now we're trying to correct that and then spread those appliances. We would like to license the product across all of the different hardware we have. View full review »

Forensic Analyst at a pharma/biotech company with 1,001-5,000 employees
No issues with scalability. Collecting NetFlow data is not hard, however, there is a chance you’ll end up with a huge amount of data that needs investigating. It might be a good idea to deploy gradually, by network segment. View full review »

I believe there isn't much to scale for it and I think it all depends on how many nodes you're running in the environment. I will say the scalability is fairly decent. View full review »

James Stout
Network Engineer at Oracle Corporation
That scalability seems to be ok, although we did have some concerns. Potentially, we are going to be looking at 100-gigabit links, and the version of the solution that we deployed does not support that. That is a long-term concern, rather than an immediate one. View full review »

It's scalable, there are many models that we can use for a small network. Cisco offers the scalability that we need. We have about eighty students, and all the students have to do some training on it. We have plans to increase the usage of Cisco. View full review »
