I want an enterprise tool that I can use to measure and audit the bandwidth actually delivered to our company by our vendor. The vendor generates reports to show bandwidth given to us versus usage but we want to audit and know:
- Are we getting what we paid for?
- Do we make do with what is available, increase or buy less?
There actually are some tools out there that can do just what you are asking about. These tools will allow you to capture real-time detailed data on the performance and utilization of every application on your network. One such tool is NetSensory Enterprise Architecture Solution. A second tool that you might want to check out is NetFlow Analyzer. You can learn more about it at the NetFlow Analyzer Web site.
