Micronas, a semi-conductor designer and manufacturer with worldwide operations based out of Germany, needed to monitor traffic on its WAN, which contained several lines under heavy load, principally from inter-site traffic in very large CAD files.
Initially, NetWatch seemed ideal. Although it could show where overloads were occurring, it could not help identify the cause. NetFlow Tracker was added to provide the necessary detail. “Through our experience with NetWatch, we came to NetFlow Tracker and immediately realized this was what we were looking for. We already knew about Cisco’s NetFlow technology, but without the right tool, we could not do much with it. As with NetWatch, we really liked NetFlow Tracker’s simplicity and user interface.” – Paul Blenderman, manager, Windows Systems and Infrastructure, Micronas
