I suggest using Nagios or Zabbix, but the question is a little bit generic.
Which kind of application? Which kind of monitoring?

Every solution can be tailored and there's no "one solution"...

Hello,  For Network Analyzer, you can use Elastiflow. It's pretty complete even though its development has stopped lately (we have recently deployed it in production for a customer). It is still just as good as it was a few years ago. For Network Configuration Management, it really depends on the sets of features you're looking for. But, you can use the Ansible & Gitlab combo. We've written a full tutorial for it on our website: Good luck!

I recommend checking Riverbed, depending on what you need: SNMP, MIB, or Flow. They have many tools available but they are not open source.

I would recommend that you contact Network Instruments call ask to speak with Rick Kingsley. What you describe is a complex exercise that will be nearly impossible accurately perform without Proper TAPs and diagnostic equipment seeing the flows on your network ..... Lab mock ups almost never extrapolate accurately into production environments. Beware of anyone who quickly answers sure we can do that for x$ (250 or so an hour).... You may well pay a lot for strong legal disclaimer an unimplementable piece of garbage called a report. Respectfully, Duane M. Bodle

This sound like instead of looking for Network Performance Monitoring the need is for a application under Data Security which would have ability to block near the firewall specific servers or sites before they are allowed through the network. This can be done at the router or use a NAC device to block the unwanted ads, not allowing the ads to pass into the network will actually speed up the page loads. Network Performance Monitoring is used for monitoring the health of the network. SolarWinds does a very good job showing the health of the switches, routers, servers, and AP’s as deep as you want using snmp, also using the Netflow will show the top network talkers and receivers and where congestion is taking place. Thresholds can be set for alarms when you get to defined levels and e-mail receive notifications. SolarWinds works well in very large environments, we have 1000+ switches/routers, 800+ servers, 6000+ AP’s. SolarWinds will give you real time plus history per device. Hope this helps.
