Usage Based Reporting

As an enterprise or service provider, tighter budgets and competitive demands that drive tighter margins has pushed the need for usage based billing to the forefront of requirements. In order to effectively recoup costs for increased demand for bandwidth and higher quality of service, organizations must ensure that everyone is treated fairly.

Whether you want to invoice on rate/second, total bits, IP addresses, ToS or some other combination of NetFlow fields, the Scrutinizer Billing Module can export exactly the data you need.

  • Customizable billing solutions for over usage and invoicing
  • Usage based on BGP, bytes, packets , ToS (DSCP): any NetFlow, Flexible NetFlow, sFlow, etc. field
  • Excessive usage over time based on thresholds
  • Flexible storage configurations


Advanced Reporting allows Scrutinizer to deeply integrate with the existing NMS. Not only does it fill the gaps, it can collect autonomous data, correlate and display it in a graphical way that provides an overall status, complete with an inventory of what application is monitoring or managing each corporate asset.
