In this blog, Chief Product Architect Alex Agerholm looks at the standard definition of network flows and explores the great potential that can be realized for lookup technology by seeing beyond conventional flow compositions.
For efficiency, a lot of monitoring and analysis tools focus on flow records to detect anomalies in the network - and only dive to the underlying packet level if needed. In this blog, Chief Product Architect Alex Agerholm discusses typical use cases, looks at NetFlow/IPFIX acceleration and speculates on the imminent future of flow processing.
CPU-bound security applications are severely challenged to process an ever increasing number of packets. In this blog, Chief Product Architect Alex Agerholm discusses how flow shunting can help address this performance bottleneck and explains how the next level of acceleration is achieved.
