Overview:

Our Network Traffic Analysis module delivers detailed and actionable data on network traffic and bandwidth consumption, which helps you establish and enforce bandwidth usage policies, control ISP costs, secure the network, and provide the network capacity required by users, applications, and the business. It not only highlights the overall utilization of the LAN, WAN, and the internet, but also indicates which users, applications, and protocols are consuming bandwidth.

Monitor Network Traffic and Bandwidth Usage

WhatsUp Gold makes it easy to get detailed visibility into your network traffic to see which users, applications, and protocols are consuming bandwidth. This insight allows you to setup bandwidth usage policies, maximize your return on ISP costs and ensure adequate bandwidth for critical business applications and services.

Need Network Traffic Monitoring? Here's How WhatsUp Gold Can Help

Network Traffic Visibility

Network Traffic Visibility
Having insight to application bandwidth consumption allows you to better manage the performance of your overall infrastructure, applications and services. You can identify bottlenecks and plan effective workarounds or justify a needed bandwidth upgrade.

Bandwidth Capacity Planning

Bandwidth Capacity Planning
Being able to see historical bandwidth usage trends allows you to stay ahead of capacity planning. Having the visibility to which applications are driving consumption allows you to demonstrate effective bandwidth management and more easily justify upgrades.

Faster Troubleshooting

Faster Troubleshooting
Knowing what traffic was consuming bandwidth during a slow-down can really accelerate your troubleshooting. It helps you identify bottleneck issues like bandwidth hogs running where and when they shouldn't be. Finding these quickly can make you a network superhero.


5 Superpowers You Get From Network Traffic Monitoring

  1. Network Traffic X-Ray Vision
    Analyze netflow data to see things that just aren't possible with SNMP like a port level analysis of applications consuming bandwidth, end-points (‘talkers’) consuming bandwidth by port and bandwidth consumption by end-point or application over time
  2. Bandwidth Usage Super Intelligence
    A utomatically track WAN usage by application for a month and then show management just what those monthly costs are paying for. Management likes IT pros that think about the business and you have all the factoids at your fingertips.
  3. Network Omni-Presence
    Some of your peers maybe worried that you are watching everything when they see reports that show who is using valuable bandwidth for games or videos when they should be working. But you'll be on top of unauthorized activity that impacts end-user response times.
  4. Super Network Optimization Skills
    How about validating that your best laid QoS plans are actually working. Traffic monitoring at the network flow level can show you the affect of application prioritization schemes.
  5. Cyber-Attack Antennae
    Set alerts for suspicious conditions like spikes in failed connection attempts on a device. Quickly spot that all of the transmissions originate form a few IP addresses outside your network and you can block an external portscan before the attacker is successful.

Features:


Get Detailed Visibility to Bandwidth Usage Patterns

Monitor your Network Traffic
The Network Traffic Analysis module collects network traffic and bandwidth usage data from any flowenabled device on the network. It supports Cisco’s NetFlow, and NSEL protocols, Juniper Network’s J-Flow, as well as sFlow and IPFIX. Uniquely, it provides support for Cisco’s NetFlow-Lite, eliminating the need to use a 3rd party aggregator to convert flow records from the NetFlow-Lite to Netflow format.

Get detailed visibility to network traffic information on:

  • Senders, receivers, and conversations
  • Sender and receiver domains
  • Sender and receiver countries
  • Applications and protocols
  • Incoming and outgoing interface traffic
  • Incoming and outgoing interface utilization
  • Bandwidth usage by host and group

Collect and view data for Cisco CBQoS (Class Based Quality of Service) and NBAR (Network Based Application Recognition).

Receive Alerts about Your Network Traffic
The Network Traffic Analysis module provides threshold-based alerting to help you address network traffic problems before they impact your users, applications, and business. It alerts you when senders or receivers exceed bandwidth thresholds, when interface traffic exceeds utilization thresholds, and when you exceed failed connections and the number of conversation partner thresholds.

The Network Traffic Analysis module allows you to create custom alerts for protocol traffic such as sudden spikes in UDP traffic which may indicate a denial of service (DoS) attack on your network.You can create custom alerts for application traffic. For example, you can get notifications when users are consuming expensive internet bandwidth on non-business applications like YouTube, Spotify, and League of Legends. You can even create custom alerts for host traffic. For instance, receive alerts when large files containing sensitive data assets are transmitted over the internet. Receive alerts when users exceed bandwidth usage thresholds.

Report on Your Network Traffic
Monthly ISP bandwidth charges are expensive. You don’t want to add more bandwidth unless you need it. Our Network Traffic Analysis lets you drill-down to identify the sources and destinations of your internet traffic, the applications consuming internet bandwidth, and the users of those applications. In this way, you can ensure that your business critical web applications are getting the bandwidth they need.

Get dozens of out-of-the-box network traffic reports including:

  • Sources
  • Interface traffic and bandwidth utilization
  • Top senders, receivers, and conversations
  • Top sender ASN and top receiver ASN
  • Top sender and receiver failed connections
  • Top applications and protocols
  • Types of devices
  • Top NBR application flow details and interface totals
  • Class Based Quality of Service (CBQoS)

These powerful dashboards help you identify traffic flow patterns, analyze bandwidth consumption, and isolate and resolve network bottlenecks. The Top Senders, Receivers, and Applications dashboards provides a baseline of what is generating traffic on your network. You can use this to identify potential bottlenecks requiring network redesign and additional capacity, or the need to implement usage policies.

The NBAR Top Applications report displays the network traffic resulting from the top applications as identified using Cisco’s NBAR classification engine. The CBQoS reports provide information about the effectiveness of class-based policies.

WhatsUp Gold’s Network Traffic Analysis module provides reports that can help you secure your networks by identifying potential Denial of Service (DoS) attacks, evidenced by spikes in UDP traffic, or by highlighting large file transfers from sensitive data assets using Peer-to-Peer Protocols.
