Flowmon Probe (NetFlow/IPFIX)

Flowmon Probes are the essentials of modern network traffic monitoring. The Probes are high-performance appliances providing network engineers with detailed statistics on network communication in the form of IP flows (NetFlow v5/v9, IPFIX). These flow statistics provide detailed and accurate information about who communicates with whom, when, how long, how often, how much data has been sent and much more information from the L2 – L4 layers. This information is crucial to ensure network security, troubleshooting, network capacity planning, peering and SLA compliance, monitoring of users and devices and other use cases.

Flowmon Probes do not affect network traffic in any way and overcome the limitations of generating flow data by routers and switches. Additionally, Flowmon Probes provide advanced application layer visibility (L7) which opens up completely new possibilities allowing administrators to monitor not only network performance, but also enhance user experience and optimize MS SQL database performance. Flow statistic are exported to storage for further analysis by a Flowmon Collector or other NetFlow/IPFIX compatible application. Thanks to its monitoring and packet capture capabilities, Flowmon Probe allows the resolving of up to 95% of all operational issues in the network.

Key features:

The most powerful NetFlow exporters on the market. Manage your network with network probe that record every packet in real time on links up to 100 Gbps.

Built-in Collector for advanced flow data storage and analysis. Store and analyse network traffic statistics from the layers L2-L4 and L7 with built-in flow collector. 

Easy Deployment and Intuitive Management. The intuitive device deployment, configuration and management allows a user to have a fully automatic NetFlow probe in few minutes without the need of additional investments.

Application layer (L7) monitoring. Utilize information from from HTTP headers, information from DNS protocol, VoIP statistics and others for better IT stack administration.
