As network engineer in small ISP/Utility network
I will buy the netflow to our solarwinds if the product would have some of the capabilities of the Arbor peakflow .
I don’t need the density or the scale of the peakflow just more support to BGP and MPLS.
I think that kind capabilities will sure sell the netflow much better to the Tier 2/3 ISPs and carrier ethernet .
I posted another topic recently in the NTA "What you are working on" thread. We are medium sized financial and have multi-homed and geographically dispersed data centers, running Orion SLX, NTA, IPSLA, etc. BGP and Traffic Engineering (TE) is a challenge in the current netflow product as it does not support aggregration cache. Being able to aggregrate by AS or prefix, source - destination etc would be ideal for adjust route-maps and local preferences to achieve the most efficient load sharing. Right now its a "Top Talkers" game and looking at interface loads. Not an exact science as one will never achieve equal loads but 60/40 across diverse carriers is obtainable and netflow is the tool analyze the traffic flow
