Documentation forNetFlow Traffic Analyzer
Analyzing network traffic and bandwidth is a key capability of Hybrid Cloud Observability Advanced and is also available in a standalone module, NetFlow Traffic Analyzer (NTA). Hybrid Cloud Observability Advanced and NTA are built on the self-hosted SolarWinds Platform.

Optimize performance in NTA

Due to the volume of data it collects and processes, NTA constantly makes demands on the widgets of both the SolarWinds Platform server and its database.

Maintaining your SolarWinds Platform, SQL and NTA Flow Storage database servers on separate physical machines is a fundamental requirement in scaling the NTA implementation. However, even with this setup, the volume of collected and processed NetFlow data calls for other performance optimizing steps.

Follow the recommendations and steps in these sections to optimize performance of your NTA implementation. Due to differences in network environments, results of these optimizations will vary from installation to installation:
