We used to rely on Network Analysers and RMON probes to give us the bandwith usage breakdowns, luckily things have moved on where this technology is freely available and already embedded into our routers, layer 3 switches and easily accessible for interpretation from flow analytical software.
Finally you can see who is consuming all the network traffic, understand what it's being used for and start creating policies that allow key applications the bandwidth they need and ensure the lesser applications like World of Warcraft are left out of the peak usage times.
Plixer Scrutinizer is a fully focused standalone Netflow collector that includes long term historical reporting, advanced alarming as well as in-depth traffic analysis, Scrutinizer is able to retrieve traffic details and present them in a detailed graphical view and provides features for MSP's who need to supply granular reports to their customers.
SolarWinds Network Traffic Analyser is a module option for Orion NPM which captures flows from routers and switches. Supporting Netflow, j-Flow, sFlow and IPFIX Orion NTA also provides CBQoS monitoring so you can confirm traffic priorities are being maintained on the network.
FlowView from AppNeta is a modular option for the PathView solution that provides remote performance monitoring at remote locations. FlowView is the first cloud based solution to analyse network capacity and is a cost effective method for network analysis. FlowView is also able to generate netflow data for analysis for a third party flow analysis tool.
