Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS NETFLOW?

Netflow is a is the collective name for a group of outputs from network devices, which provide information such as packet size, destination, source, destination port and source port. For network monitoring solutions such as Ipswitch WhatsUp Gold which contain a built in NetFlow Analyser, it provides greater insight into problematic areas of the network, which it can then report on.

Different network device vendors have different names for this feature: Cisco uses the name NetFlow, HP Aruba favours sFlow and Juniper Networks uses J-Flow.

 

WHY SHOULD I MONITOR NETFLOW DATA?

We don't believe it is required in all cases, however it does provide a level of detail into network traffic and behaviour that typical monitoring protocols such as SNMP, do not.

If you have problems with bottlenecks, network slow-downs and other unexplainable behaviour, a Netflow Analyser such as WhatsUp Gold will be able to help.

 

HOW EASY IS IT TO SET UP NETFLOW?

As simple as any other module in WhatsUp Gold - Just configure your switch or router to send NetFlow packets to WhatsUp Gold and within a few minutes you should see some of the dashboards and graphs populated with your NetFlow information.

If you have a Total Plus license, you will already have this capability included in your software. If not, we can arrange a trial of the Network Traffic Analysis free of charge.

 

IS NETFLOW ANALYSIS ONLY AVAILABLE WITH WHATSUP GOLD?

No, a lot of other vendors provide NetFlow collection and analysis modules and tools. However, after ten years of network monitoring software experience, we do believe that WhatsUp Gold offers the best solution at the best price.
