Streamline the Process of Flow Record Generation In
10/40GE Large Scale Deployments

Provide the Performance & Scalability Required Across All Ports

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. NetFlow (IETF version known as IPFIX) was originally developed by Cisco and is the de-facto standard for flow records. Because of Cisco’s involvement, flow record generation is most often associated with routers and switches. However, due to lack of scalability, heterogeneity, location and other reasons, sometimes a dedicated external flow exporter or probe is a better option.

ntop, in collaboration with Accolade Technology, provides a robust and flexible 1U application acceleration platform solution for flow record generation (e.g. Netflow v5/v9/IPFIX) in large scale 10/40GE enterprise and service provider implementations. The solution is deployed on Accolade’s ATLAS-1000, a 1U OEM Application Acceleration platform.

Key Challenges:
  • Guarantee 100% 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
ATLAS-1000 Solution:
  • Lossless packet capture
  • Flow Classification
  • PF_RING
  • Packet Filtering
  • Timestamping
