How to Deploy Network Packet Sensors - Learn how to configure a span on a single port and a VLAN connected to multiple physical ports, deploy a NPAS, and configure the sensor to monitor specific applications across multiple network ports.
SOLARWINDS LAB #16 SERVICE PACK 1: CONFIGURING SPAN PORTS, PACKET ANALYSIS AND NETFLOW CORRELATION - In this special SolarWinds Lab Service Pack episode, the Geeks answer viewer questions on an advanced topic: how-to analyze packet traffic using SPAN ports and how it correlates with NetFlow traffic data. They will be diagramming setup and monitoring topology, Leon will do a hands-on CLI configuration of SPAN ports, (including VLAN mirroring), and will also provide best practice recommendations for using Network Performance Monitor’s packet analysis together with NTA’s NetFlow monitoring.
Packet Analysis Sensor Deployment Guide - The document guides you through deploying SolarWinds Packet Analysis Sensors to specific nodes that are discovered by your Orion-platform product. These sensors provide the data for the Quality of Experience dashboard in the Web Console.
