Networks are the backbone of IT. Performance problems or attacks on the infrastructure are particularly evident here. With the proven open source solution ntop and the nBox package based on it, you can keep an eye on your networks at all times. The nBox is part of the NetEye ecosystem.
Heterogeneous networks can be monitored centrally and across systems with ntop, and attacks on your data can be detected and prevented at an early stage. For you this means: Highest performance for your network and all correlated applications.
nBox is your individual appliance with the preinstalled ntop network-monitoring package as passive data collector. If you need to save yourself time-intensive installations of NetFlow software, then nBox is the perfect solution for you.
ntop automatically identifies which applications are generating the traffic, without the need to adopt complicated filters. It gives you a detailed overview of statistics relating to subnetworks, systems, flow matrices, geo-localizations and lots more.
The nBox monitors over 130 different application logs end-to-end right up to the client. A specifically adapted Linux kernel and optimally designed hardware guarantee the monitoring of high-speed networks or FB-C with one appliance, occupying only one height unit in the rack.
As a network traffic solution that displays real-time network use, ntop combined with nBox also enables 10GB networks to be monitored. ntop establishes itself as a webserver and is easy to operate via browser.
The integration of ntop in NetEye enables easy and flexible monitoring and analysis of the IP data stream, thus allowing any kind of anomaly or problem to be determined in real time.
ntop is open source, meaning that only open and tried-and-trusted standards are used. The ntop component thus follows nprobe, which collects data in the network and forwards them to ntop as Netflow standard. Originally defined by Cisco, Netflow is now one of the most widely used technologies for exporting traffic analysis data.
The traffic analysis is encoded according to source and destination and can be made according to various protocols, including IPv4/IPv6, IPX, DecNet, AppleTalk, Netbios, OSI and DLC. The display also includes the IP traffic subnet matrix, the capture of the identity of e.g. e-mail addresses, network users, and the passive recognition of Host OS, without probe packets being sent.
Network behavior analyses performed by ntop allow you to identify which types of devices are underway in your networks, via which cloud services they are communicating and which data volumes are being moved in the process. You can immediately ascertain which device profiles and protocols are commonly used.
Localize, evaluate and quantify the IT performance right up to end user level. Network behavior analyses allow you to identify “end-to-end”, helping your to solve application and network performance form the user´s perspective.
With nBox, only the data export options need to be configured when integrating nprobe in the network. Thanks to standardized formats and interfaces, the collector’s ntop can be integrated in other systems with minimal effort as well.
