New Version of Orion NetFlow Traffic Analyzer Available
SolarWinds's Orion NTA v3.6 has new features including advanced application mapping and optimized flow collection performance.
Orion NetFlow Traffic Analyzer (NTA) analyzes NetFlow, J-Flow, and sFlow data and performs CBQoS monitoring to provide a comprehensive view of network traffic. This CNN Money news report says the company takes flow analysis one step further in this new version, allowing network engineers to collect important data faster by reducing what's extraneous.
"Designed to give network engineers a comprehensive view of network traffic, Orion NTA analyzes NetFlow, J-Flow, and sFlow data and performs CBQoS monitoring to quantify exactly how the network is being used, by whom and for what purpose.
"'With the latest Orion NTA, we've taken flow analysis one step further. Network engineers can collect important data faster by reducing what's extraneous and can more granularly distinguish network traffic by application. Both features are important to businesses looking to optimize data collection and storage. Knowing that 60% of your bandwidth usage is web traffic is nice, but knowing what percentage is being used by social applications like Facebook versus critical business applications like Salesforce can be very useful,' said Sanjay Castelino, SolarWinds' Vice President of Product Marketing and Management."
