Intro

Who's hogging all the bandwidth? Network traffic monitoring can tell you. Visibility into network usage helps you more effectively troubleshoot issues by providing a closer look at exactly which machine, application, or user is causing traffic spikes or dips.

Intermapper Flows is an add-on network traffic monitor tool to Intermapper that gives you a granular look at network usage. With real-time traffic graphs and easy drill-down, it's easy to analyze how traffic is flowing through and across your network. With the answers at your fingertips, you'll never be baffled by a network issue again.

Historic Flow Data Analysis

Knowing what data is flowing across and through your network isn’t just important at the moment of inquiry—it’s also critical for future data analysis. With a historic record of network traffic levels, you can more effectively plan for future infrastructure needs, review trends, and demonstrate compliance with regulations.

Intermapper Flows stores NetFlow data over time, making it easy for you to conduct detailed flow analysis and identify trends. All conversations passing through your network are recorded and saved for future reference so you always have all your data at your fingertips.

Real-Time Flow Monitoring

Intermapper already monitors your network to provide real-time data on its status. With Intermapper Flows, those real-time metrics are retained with sub-millisecond accuracy to create a complete picture of network traffic for future analysis.

In real time, it’s easy to click into your network map and find traffic data such as Whois information availability, traffic origins, and high-level summaries of key metrics. Later on, break out collected data for thorough analysis by application, conversation, domain, endpoint, protocol, and more.
