Great for service discovery and load balancing and enables us to monitor the traffic flow

What is our primary use case?

We use InfoVista 5View NetFlow to understand how network traffic is balanced in operations for load management and diagnostics with PHP coded applications. We implement InfoVista 5View NetFlow on our customer sites so that we can start from the core service of hosting SaaS applications for our business. In our use case, the network traffic implements a different load manager from the cloud-hosted applications, so that they stay in balance more. InfoVista 5View NetFlow allows us to control the application layer and manage API connections, i.e. Facebook logins or whatever other third-party API… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "InfoVista 5View NetFlow allows us to control the application layer and manage API connections, i.e. Facebook logins or whatever other third-party API services we require."
  • "A little bit better documentation on the details is needed because this subject is not easy sometimes to understand, which limits the capability of the software."

What other advice do I have?

On a scale from 1 to 10, I would rate this product a 10. I would still like to see some new features. InfoVista 5View NetFlow improves our service discovery. I see sometimes a few stability problems with the software on tracking new alternative systems of encryption, but InfoVista 5View NetFlow is efficient to map the names of the I/O processes. Most reports take less than five minutes to generate. Sometimes we need to tend to issues once every week or once we move network data. I recommend to anyone to go and play on the software. The more you play on the system, the more you will understand…
