My company is interested in setting up machines at our numerous branches in order to perform polling and monitor bandwidth usage and availability in order for us to have a better idea of our utilization. Can someone recommend a SolarWinds application which can be used for such a task? Also if possible, I would like an idea of the system requirements for said polling machines.
Thanks in advance.
I would expect everything you are asking for can be done with Network Performance Monitor (NPM) and Netflow Traffic Analyzer (NTA)
Requirements vary depending on how many endpoints/branches you want to monitor but you can see the guidelines here
There are 3 main pieces, your Poller, SQL DB, and Netflow DB, in a very small environment you can stack these into one server but in larger ones you would need to split them onto 3 servers.
