Scrutinizer 9.0 was developed to help network administrators easily peer deep into packet traffic flowing over corporate networks to restore/regain valuable bandwidth for priority business applications. Plixer's Scrutinizer Product Manager, Michael Patterson, underscores Scrutinizer's value in an era of social media applications and ubiquitous personal smartphone/tablet traffic clogging corporate networks.

"Today's hand-held smartphones and tablets are capable of producing almost as much network traffic as a typical desktop PC and -- they are consuming corporate bandwidth at an alarming rate," stated Patterson. "Exacerbating this problem, are employees using applications such as Facebook and Words with Friends -- that constantly stream data, robbing network bandwidth from business applications such as email and VoIP phone calls. Scrutinizer 9.0 was specifically developed to give network administrators in-depth visibility into exactly what network traffic is being generated by whom and restore the finite network resource to business-related matters."

Scrutinizer™ 9.0 is an enterprise-class, flow reporting and analysis tool with new features including:

  • A high-performance Linux appliance that collects over 100K flows per second (over 60M flows/minute)
  • New Cisco Advanced NetFlow reports that provide in-depth network traffic visibility:
    • Smart Logging Telemetry (SLT)
    • Cisco TrustSec (CTS)
    • Performance Routing (PfR)
    • Performance monitoring (Medianet)
  • Advanced Citrix NetScaler reports detailing URLs, applications and latency
  • Advanced SonicWALL VPN reports identifying VPN names as well as remote and local addresses
