Enterprise Flow Support
Riverbed® SteelCentral™ Flow Gateway collects and forwards flow data (NetFlow, sFlow, J-Flow, IPFIX, Azure NSG Flow Logs and other popular flow statistics) from network devices and SteelFlow Net from SteelCentral AppResponse appliances to SteelCentral NetProfiler for hybrid flow analysis and reporting.
Flow Gateway de-duplicates flows for end-to-end flow visibility, better accuracy in reporting, and lower total cost of ownership.
Reliable, Compressed Transmission
Flow Gateway aggregates the data, de-duplicates it, compresses it by five to ten times, encrypts it, and then transmits it via TCP to NetProfiler for enhanced reliability and reduced impact on the network.
When connectivity is lost, Flow Gateway will temporarily store flows until connectivity is restored and flows can be delivered.
NetProfiler uses SteelCentral Flow Gateway for flow collection. For more information on NetProfiler, search "NetProfiler" in the Marketplace.
