HP 6600 NetFlow Support

Recently, I discovered that the HP 6600 Router Series has support for NetFlow. If you search for HP 6600 NetFlow Support, though, you don’t find much. This is because HP’s version of NetFlow is called NetStream (likely from their acquisition of 3Com). I first learned about this when I browsed HP’s website to see if they offered NetFlow/IPFIX support. After much searching, I found what I was looking for.

User Bandwidth Monitor

User Bandwidth Monitor

I often receive calls from system administrators who want to set up a user bandwidth monitor. The admins aren’t always clear about what they mean by that, but by using NetFlow and IPFIX data it’s possible to create a variety of reports that could satisfy management’s demands for easily accessible insight into user activity. It’s simple enough to generate reports that show total bandwidth usage for the network’s devices. But we can also create reports that are fine tuned to monitor the bandwidth usage of discrete groups of users or of particular website URLs, so that management can keep abreast of what employees are doing and whether that use complies with enterprise network usage policy. I’m going to setup a couple of reports, then save them as gadgets on a dashboard so that managers will have quick and easy access to timely information about user activity.

How to Avoid NetFlow Sampling

As resource demands and bandwidth speeds in many of today’s network infrastructures continue to increase, many network administrators believe that NetFlow sampling is the only way to deal with the high flow volume that is sent across the network. In fact, setting a NetFlow sample rate of 1 in 100 can cut flow volumes as much as 50%.

Many high end network equipment vendors like Cisco and Juniper may force you to sample, or at the very least strongly recommend it.
