NetFlow Optimizer Deployments

NetFlow Optimizer receives flow data from your network devices, typically sent over UDP protocol. NetFlow analytics and/or original flow data are sent from NFO to any system capable of receiving syslogs over UDP protocol, such as Splunk indexers or Splunk forwarders, rsyslog or syslog-ng, VMware vRealize Log Insight, Exabeam, Sumo Logic, Elastic stack (ELK), or any other SIEM system. These systems store flow information where it can be correlated with other machine data, visualized in dashboards, searched and used for creating alerts.
