Which Network Analyzer and Network Configuration Manager do you recommend?

Hi community,

I work as the Regional Manager at a Tech Services company.

Currently, I'm exploring open-source Network Analyzer and Network Configuration managers. 

Which one would you recommend and why?

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: https://www.zen-networks.io/ne...


Good luck!

For the network configuration manager, I would take a look at Auvik. It is free to try and easy to deploy.


They do a decent job of network traffic analyzing. If you want to look inside the traffic only there is  Wireshark.  


Kind Regards,

For Network Configuration Manager, have a look at Device Config functionality that is part of NetCrunch. it includes predefined profiles of over 180 network device types, plus an editor that helps you easily create new profile definition for any less popular device that you have in your network.

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

@Shibu Babuchandran yes Riverbed has several use cases, check Digital Experience Innovation & Acceleration | Riverbed
also riverbed is one of the companies focused on networks and network deduction, I work with a lot of tools and have a long history, today you need a total solution for on-prem, hybrid, cloud, multicloud. I use Instana for obeservability, Turbonomic for cost savings and Riverbed with sevone for network and network cost deduction

Hello @Kaushlendra Singh,  I would suggest SD-WAN as the best suitable technology for shaping your traffic between these 2 sites.  And if you don't want to invest, you can utilize your current firewall to create IPSec VPN for the backup line, and the primary can be P2P with increased bandwidth. For that, P2P needs to be terminated on your firewall.

We are planning on installing the new IBM Tivoli "NOI" Application from scratch on new servers in a "high availability" configuration. Has anyone done this on their own (without an IBM consultant on site to assist)? We are currently running IBM Tivoli Netcool (see below). Thanks Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus Web GUI 7.4.0 IBM Tivoli Network Manager IP Edition 4.1.1
