SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer Module for SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor SLX - License with 1st-year Maintenance


SolarWinds® NetFlow Traffic Analyzer (NTA) allows you to capture data from continuous streams of network traffic, and convert those raw numbers into easy-to-interpret charts and tables that quantify exactly how the corporate network is being used, by whom, and for what purpose.

» NTA collects and analyzes flow data from multiple vendors, including NetFlow v5 and v9,

Juniper® J-FlowTM, sFlow®, Huawei® NetStreamTM, and IPFIX.

» NTA supports advanced application recognition with Cisco® NBAR2.

» NTA shows pre- and post-policy CBQoS class maps so you can optimize your CBQoS policies.

» NTA will help you identify malicious or malformed traffic with port 0 monitoring.

» NTA includes WLC network traffic analysis so you can see what is using your wireless bandwidth.

» NTA supplements Network Performance Monitor by helping to identify the cause of high bandwidth. Built on the Orion® Platform, NTA provides the ability to purchase and fully integrate with additional network monitoring modules (Config Management, WAN Management, VoIP, Device Tracking, IP Address Management), as well as systems, storage, and virtualizationmanagement in a single web console.


Bandwidth Utilization Monitoring


Bandwidth Threshold Alerting

Delivers an instant alert notification, including a list of top talkers when an interface exceeds its

bandwidth utilization threshold.


Bandwidth Usage by Application

Provides valuable insights into which applications are consuming the most network bandwidth,

and tracks application traffic arriving from designated ports, source IPs, destination IPs, and

even protocols.


Bandwidth Usage by IP Groups

Analyzes network traffic with custom overlapping IP address groups. Create your own IP addressgroups to view network traffic the way that you want to see it.

Network Traffic Monitoring and Forensics

Traffic Analysis Dashboard

Delivers a comprehensive, customizable view of your network traffic on a single pane of glass,

allowing you to spot potential problems quickly with top ten views of network traffic data. Get

to the root cause of bandwidth issues with an intuitive point-and-click interface.


Cross-stack Network Data Correlation

Accelerate identification of root cause by dragging-and-dropping network performance metrics

on a common timeline for immediate visual correlation across all of your network data.


Network Traffic Forensics

Enables you to drill down into any element’s traffic using multiple views to get the perspective

you’re looking for. You can investigate and isolate excessive network bandwidth utilization and

unexpected application traffic.


CBQoS Performance Views

Enables you to view network traffic segmented by Class of Service methods, measure effectiveness of your CBQoS policies, and quantify bandwidth consumption by class map.


Port 0 Monitoring

TCP/UDP monitoring of Port 0 traffic highlights any flows directed to port 0 so you can identify

intrusive traffic.


Border Gateway Protocol

Enables you to set up customized views of internet traffic for ISPs and organizations to better

understand how traffic is balanced across providers

Flow-based Monitoring and Reporting

Multi-Vendor Device Support

» Analyzes CiscoNBAR2 and NetFlow v5 and v9, Juniper J-Flow, IPFIX, sFlow, Huawei NetStream, and other flow data

» Supports devices from Cisco, HP®, Juniper, Huawei, Extreme Networks®, Nortel Networks®,

and other leading vendors


» Supports IPFIX traffic from VMware® vSwitch


Flow-based Reporting

Enables you to create in-depth network traffic reports with a few clicks, or schedule automatic

weekly delivery to your team.

Flow Navigator

Build complex, multi-variable filters to help you answer questions faster.

Top-Talker Optimization

Determines which flows are representative of the majority of bandwidth usage. It stores those

flows while disregarding flow data from users and applications that have a negligible impact

on overall bandwidth. Boost overall performance of SolarWinds NTA up to 10x when capturing

flows that represent 95% of the total network traffic.



Integrated Fault, Performance, and Configuration Management

Integrates with SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor (NPM), SolarWinds Network Configuration

Manager (NCM), and SolarWinds User Device Tracker (UDT). This integration provides a

unified solution for fault, performance, configuration management, automated device tracking,

and switch port management.


Integration with Microsoft® Active Directory®

Leverages your existing Active Directory user accounts to simplify login and account management.
