Dashboard Interface View


The Interface View tab displays information on all interfaces from which NetFlow exports are received.


The default view shows only the routers corresponding to the first collector.The Router List shows all the routers from which NetFlow exports have been received so far. Click the drill to display the interfaces corresponding to the individual routers. Click the [Hide All] link to hide all interfaces and show only the router names and the number of interfaces against each router. By using the combo/drop-down box against Show, one can change the Collector name to point to the desired. If the option "All Collectors" is chosen then all the routers corresponding to all the Collectors are listed. The Sorty By combo/drop-down box helps one to sort the interfaces by Name, IN/OUT Speed/Utilization etc. Select the required option accordingly.


Click the searchicon to search for interfaces with specific percentage values. You can search for interfaces under various routers that satisfy a certain condition like - In Traffic or Out Traffic being greater than, or Lesser than or Equal to a certain percentage value. Click Enter for the view to change as per the conditions set. Illustration: When the condition is set for Router Name as 1 , Interface Name as ifindex1 , IN Traffic as > 5 %, all the routers that have a "1" in their name are chosen. Now among the filtered routers those interfaces that have "ifindex1" in their name are chosen and the IN Traffic condition is applied. Finally, all those interfaces along with the traffic details that have satisfied the condition are displayed. By clicking on the search button again the search option can be revoked.
