NAM Server ► Reports ► Network
The network reports provide a network view of the traffic. They show a picture of the monitored network operation and highlight potential problems in the network, including excessive RTT or loss rate.
Menu options depend on the release you are using.
See NAM workflow to walk through some typical analysis procedures with NAM.

Sometimes the fastest way to find something is to forget the menus and use the search box.
You could look for an IP address or a user name or a protocol name and get everything you need in one place.
The network reports show metrics for all detected or defined regions, areas, and sites, and for all analyzed software services. They help you to quickly troubleshoot software service or network performance problems by answering these questions:
- Who (which clients and servers) is sending what data?
- Which software services are competing for network resources?
- When was the software service used?
- Where is the troublesome software service traffic flowing through the network?
- Why is the software service performing poorly?
- How much data (bytes) is being sent/received?
A healthy network is necessary as a platform for the IT applications that support key business services. The network reports deliver metrics on the performance levels of various software services across the network. They help you find and eliminate performance problems before they affect end users. They help you to identify the business impact of the performance problem and to plan for the growth of network infrastructure by showing network performance trends for critical software services with respect to traffic load and loss rate baselines.
