Gather Bandwidth Usage Information<br />Who is using?<br />When it is used?<br />How much is the usage?<br />What is the purpose<br />?<br />
Gather Crucial Individual Usage Information<br />What is the protocol used?<br />What are the websites visited?<br />Are the sites bandwidth intensive?<br />What is the individual’s usage pattern?<br />HTTP, FTP, SMTP<br />
Ensure bandwidth is used for business purposes<br />If the bandwidth is used for non-business purposes, identify the bandwidth intensive websites and block them<br />Take Control of Bandwidth Usage<br />
Ensure that excessive usage does not clog and hamper your business<br />If business usage exceeds available capacity, augment your bandwidth resource for optimal usage<br />Curtail usage in non-business hours and reduce expenditure<br />Exercise Absolute Control Over Bandwidth Usage<br />
Get bandwidth usage trend<br />Formulate and implement bandwidth policy to optimize usage<br />Plan to increase bandwidth capacity to accommodate traffic growth in future<br />Have a Vision! Plan Your Bandwidth Capacity!!<br />
Get real-time bandwidth usage information<br />Keep an eye on live bandwidth usage aggregated per device<br />Initiate appropriate contingency measures to contain unwanted usage<br />Now Get Live Bandwidth Information!!<br />
Log vsNetflow - Compare Bandwidth Information<br />Log<br />Firewall level information<br />Suitable for only non-NAT environment<br />Source/Destination behind the Firewall can be identified<br />NetFlow<br />Router level information<br />Suitable for both NAT and non-NAT environment<br />Source/Destination behind the Firewall cannot be identified<br />
The Solution !!!<br />You require an application which fulfills all your bandwidth management needs<br />Should be able to extract bandwidth information from Firewall logs<br />Capable of generating Live, Traffic, Usage, and Trend reports<br />Notify alerts to you on specific and anomalous occurrences<br />
