PLEASANTON, California, August 14, 2007

AdventNet Inc., the leading provider of enterprise IT management software today announced the immediate availability of support for sFlow® in NetFlow Analyzer 6.0. This extends the management capabilities of the product to include devices from Alcatel-Lucent, Extreme Networks, Foundry Networks, HP, Hitachi, NEC and more.

sFlow® is an industry standard technology for monitoring high speed switchednetworks. It gives complete visibility into the use of networks enabling performance optimization, accounting/billing for usage, and defense against security threats. By providing unprecedented visibility into network usage and active routes of even today's high-speed and complex networks, sFlow provides the data required to effectively control and manage network usage, ensuring that network services provide a competitive advantage. As an embedded technology providing probe-like functionality for every interface, sFlow enabled switches and routers future-proof the network infrastructure.This built-in capability makes many applications possible that otherwise would not be practical because of the prohibitive expense of external probes. Devices manufactured by vendors like Alcatel-Lucent, Extreme Networks, Foundry Networks, HP, Hitachi, NEC etc are capable of exporting sFlow.

"We have been using NetFlow Analyzer to monitor our bandwidth consumption across the school network spread around 35 sites at Elizabeth, NJ. We have found the product very helpful in capacity planning and in bandwidth related troubleshooting. I would recommend NetFlow Analyzer to anyone looking for a bandwidth monitoring solution" says Girish Kumar, of Elizabeth Board of Education, New Jersey.

"As the market leader in flow based network analysis, we have been receiving a strong demand to monitor devices that export sFlow. The sampling technology involved in sFlow makes it a great choice in monitoring high speed switches and routers", said Raghu Ramanujam, Product Manager for NetFlow Analyzer at AdventNet. "We are glad to address the monitoring needs and enable customers to leverage their existing infrastructure investments" he added.
