Hi reply.prak,

You have a couple of options.

  1. Update to NPM 11 and use the deep packet inspection feature. You will need to use the network packet sensor and connect to a SPAN port
  2. If you can configure NetFlow (or some other flow standard) on your ISP routers you could use a product like SolarWinds NTA
  3. Install something like LANGuardian which also does deep packet inspection but can also capture metadata (websites, urls, resource names). This can also integrate with your NPM solution.
