Generate Flow Records Across All Ports at 10GE and 40GE with
nProbe Flow Exporter Software

ntop Certifies ATLAS-1000, 1U OEM Acceleration Platform for nProbe

Generating flow records is an important monitoring function in computer networks in order to provide data to support network and security monitoring, network planning, traffic analysis and IP accounting.  nProbe software provides a robust and flexible solution for flow record generation (e.g. Netflow v5/v9/IPFIX) that can be deployed on commodity hardware.

One of the benefits of ntop software is that it can run on commodity hardware and traditionally ntop does not have to focus on the underlying hardware that supports its network monitoring software. This philosophy works well for small-scale deployments with moderate levels of traffic. However once 10G or 40G speeds are required, the underlying hardware becomes critical in order to sustain desired levels of performance and scale.

In order to achieve these performance levels, nProbe was integrated, tested and certified on Accolade’s 1U OEM ATLAS-1000 platform, taking advantage of the ntop developed PF_RING technology which has been updated to support all Accolade APIs.

Learn how the ATLAS-1000 solved the key challenges below by offering more capabilities than any standard commodity hardware.

Key Challenges

  • Guarantee 100% lossless packet capture across all ports at 10G and 40G speeds
  • Require hardware-based packet processing features to boost nProbe performance
  • Require cost effective, fully integrated hardware platform with full service support
