Monitor Bandwidth with Netflow

Netflow 1

NetFlow Analyzer is a web-based tool that analyzes and reports on bandwidth usage across the enterprise. Netflow data that is exported from Cisco devices, is collected and correlated by NetFlow Analyzer in order to generate reports on top talkers, top applications, top bandwidth users, and more.

NetFlow Analyzer is very simple to deploy and start working with. You can install NetFlow Analyzer on a Windows or Linux machine, and use just a web browser to access the client interface. After installing, set up your Cisco routers/switches to export Netflow data to NetFlow Analyzer. Within minutes, traffic graphs are plotted and reports are automatically generated by NetFlow Analyzer.
