NetFlow kinda blows my mind.
A Plug-In that monitors where your network users are collectively spending their time traveling to within the vast Internet universe? That’s amazing, not to mention an important step toward preventative Network Management rather than reactionary Network Management.
Rather than nervously waiting for a user to call you and complain the network is running slower than usual you can tell them the office’s group addiction to YouTube is the root of the issue.
Well, not everyone runs Cisco devices. We know that. So we’ve now included capabilities to monitor sFlow and jFlow, as well as NetFlow. Oh, and with Flow Monitor 2.0, you’ll get a level deeper of insight to your Network; now you can see exactly which user is going to what site so you can identify Network issues more efficiently.
But don’t take my word for it. Take Claudio Robles’ word.
Afterall . . . he is the man behind the software.
