On- Prem Analytics
I have heard from many customers that Sonicwall removed a working software(Analyzer) and brought in a incompatible software (Analytics) because the comparatively stable version was not supported on Hyper-V and it was only supported on ESXI which was not affordable for everyone.
A good news for all of us is, on April 30th, our Management and reporting team has released 2.5.2518 which supports Analytics on Hyper V.
On 2.5.2518, we support both Syslog-based and Flow Based(Ipfix -based).
To add, The IPFIX-based Analytics and Syslog-based Analytics have different licensing models.
