SolarWinds Netflow Traffic Analyzer Pros and Cons

SolarWinds Netflow Traffic Analyzer Pros

MarkS
IT Analyst at Hawkbridge Consultants
In terms of the implementation, we've actually used SAM, the server and application monitoring tools. The network configuration tools are very useful in terms of bulk upgrading switches and infrastructure. Also, the Network Traffic Analyzer was extremely useful to track down errant users soaking up bandwidth.

SolarWinds Netflow Traffic Analyzer Cons

MarkS
IT Analyst at Hawkbridge Consultants
The problem is that SolarWinds is trying to bolt in too much and that can leave bugs, which you have to then sort out, leaving the product unstable. SolarWinds needs to try and slow down and improve the stability of the product, as opposed to bringing out more and more features.

It does not flow. It cannot do our metric performance monitoring. So it is very limited. They can do it but in a very limited fashion. It is only good for SNMP-based alerts.

The licensing should be more realistic so that we can adjust the number of nodes according to my needs, rather than in fixed increments.
