The NetFlow Information You Need To See What's Happening On your Network

opFlow is a network traffic analyzer that collects and presents NetFlow data in an organized manner that enables organizations to identify, assess and act on network usage patterns and events. Know when and where traffic incidents and abnormalities are occurring to reduce the Mean time to repair (MTTR) and improve network performance. The opFlow module from FirstWave will provide the NetFlow and IP-Fix analysis needed to see what is happening across your network.

opFlow derives and summarizes network traffic from any NetFlow packet sent to it, allowing you to pinpoint abnormalities with ease. Flows are automatically summarized on their arrival and can be further filtered based on based on important categories including top utilizers, protocols, applications, sources, listeners and more very quickly.

Out of the box you can expect opFlow to visualize your top talkers and give you an overview of what is happening and where with minimal configuration.

opFlow FAQs

  1. What are NetFlow packets?

    NetFlow packets are network data records that provide detailed information about IP traffic flows. NetFlow packets are typically generated and pushed from a router to a designated collector for storage and analysis.

  2. Can opFlow identify malicious events?

    opFlow can identify malicious events like DDoS attacks by analyzing network traffic patterns and pinpointing unusual spikes or sources of high traffic. It provides insights into the top sources and applications, helping to quickly identify and mitigate such threats.

  3. Can opFlow analyze high-volume traffic?

    opFlow comes out of the box with high volume mode enabled, which pre-aggregates flows within specified intervals to ensure scalability and efficient processing. By utilizing parallel processing, opFlow manages substantial amounts of network traffic while balancing database performance and data granularity.

  4. How does opFlow summarize traffic?

    opFlow summarizes traffic by aggregating raw flow records into summarized flow records based on a specified interval, grouping by source and destination IP addresses, and application.

  5. Why are summarizations so useful?

    Flow summarization is useful because it significantly reduces storage requirements and server load, allowing for longer data retention and faster performance without losing essential network traffic details.
