Which SolarWinds product are you writing this review for? Network traffic Analyzer
What problem were you trying to solve when you purchased? See which applications are the most data intensive
Did you consider options other than SolarWinds? We looked at Manage Enginge and this product.
How are you using the product and what benefits have you seen? We implemented this with two other solarwinds products, but each for different issues. In this instance we wanted something that could look at our netflow and tell us which applications were using the most bandwith. This has allowed us to justify upgrading to a 100MB internet connection. I'm also able to see who is using the most bandwith, and make them start to justify why they "need," youtube. We also have the added benefit of being able to look at our wireless controllers and see rogue access points, which connected devices are using the most data, and which access points are the most utilized. This was all implemented easily, and we are getting alot for our money.
