Network Subnets Monitor (10011 / 20011)


This Module reports top bandwidth consumers for each monitored subnet. This information is provided per NetFlow exporter and monitored subnet.


Parameter NameDescriptionComments
Data Collection Interval, secModule logic execution intervalmin = 10 sec, max = 600 sec, default = 30 sec
Monitored subnet IPv4 address and subnet maskList of the watched subnets’ IPv4 addresses and masks (CIDR notation)e.g.,18;,24
Monitored subnet IPv6 address and subnet maskList of the watched subnets’ IPv6 addresses and masks (CIDR notation)e.g. 2620:0:2d0:200::7,24
N – number of reported hostsTop N (number of reported hosts per subnet)min = 0, max = 100000, default = 50 (0 indicates all hosts are reported)


NetFlow v5, v9, IPFIX, Cisco ASA NSEL, sFlow.
