Identify the Top Talkers and Applications on your network. With SNMPc OnLine
12 you can identify traffic patterns and in near real time understand exactly
how your network bandwidth is being utilized.
- Cost Effectiveness — Leverage your existing devices to deliver
application monitoring without the expense of deploying additional probes.
- User Experience — By understanding exactly how and when users access
applications you can make informed decisions on allocating network resources
and services to deliver a common user experience across distributed networks.
- Auditing — Monitor network conversations and ensure users are not
violating stated business policies. Verify that users are not consuming bandwidth
by accessing personal or non-business applications and websites.
- Security — NetFlow can be used to identify issues such as DDOS,
viruses and worms. Track down rogue applications and assess their origin and impact.
SNMPc OnLineís ability to store NetFlow data over long periods of time means that
network anomalies can be recognized and analyzed.

over long periods of time you can plan and justify future network growth based on
accurate information. Ensure that networks capacity is sufficient as new
applications and technologies are implemented. Check the WAN networks are not
being overloaded by unwanted or inefficient traffic.
- Accounting and Billing — NetFlow tracks an individual users application
usage and data counts. This detailed information can be used internally for
cost allocation and department bill back.
