SonicWall Scrutinizer


Sonicwall Scrutinizer  - Analyze Your Network More Closely than Ever
Analyze your network more closely than ever.
SonicWALL Scrutinizer is a traffic analytics visualization and reporting tool that you can use to measure and troubleshoot network performance and utilization — and increase your business’ productivity. Scrutinizer supports a wide range of routers, switches, firewalls and data-flow reporting protocols, providing unparalleled insight into application traffic analysis.

Intuitive, comprehensive graphics to map your data.
Flexible analysis options can display trends in bits, bytes, packets or percent of total bandwidth consumed on a periodic basis, down to the second. Then, your IT department can analyze and create reports based on top hosts, protocols, ports, applications, network traffic, VPN traffic, VoIP traffic and conversations across all network realms and devices.

The highest detail from SonicWALL Application Traffic Analytics.
Administrators can enhance network optimization with a unique application flow analytics solution that combines SonicWALL Next-Generation Firewall and SonicWALL Scrutinizer. The firewall transmits IPFIX data in real-time to the Scrutinizer traffic analyzer collector, where the administrator can examine data by application or by user, look at data over different time periods and much more. Only SonicWALL offers this level of application traffic detail.
Sonicwall Scrutinizer  - High Compatibility for Easy Use
High compatibility for easy use.
Scrutinizer is compatible with hundreds of routers, switches, firewalls and other network devices from multiple vendors, with capacity to monitor thousands of interfaces simultaneously. Scrutinizer supports all industry standard data flow protocols including NetFlow v5, NetFlow v9, Flexible NetFlow, J-Flow, sFlow and IPFIX. The optional Advanced Reporting Module provides extensive support for Cisco® equipment and Citrix® equipment.

Flexible, customizable administration.
Administration is simple with Scrutinizer’s central, easy-to-use console. Dashboards can be customized per login, and permissions can be set at the user and group level to access flows for specific router, switch and firewall interfaces.
