#FeatureFriday: What is NetFlow?

Welcome to “Feature Friday”, a series of (typically short) videos which explain a feature, function, or technique.

Compared to features like Ping and SNMP, NetFlow is a relative newcomer to the monitoring scene, but that doesn’t mean it’s young and untested. In fact, it was introduced by Cisco almost a decade ago!

In this video, Chris O’Brien and I talk about what NetFlow means to a monitoring engineer and the insights it can provide about your network.
