What we're working on for NTA post 2019.4 (November 27th, 2019)

With our 2019.4 release, we've delivered flow support for Meraki MX/Z series security and SD-WAN devices, enabling application traffic flow visibility on each interface. We've also re-designed and implemented separate pages for managing flow sources, and the collection of CBQoS statistics - simplifying the navigation, and adding filtering and search capabilities to support larger scale implementations. We've also significantly improved our web performance and responsiveness.

You can learn more about this latest version of NTA here: INTRODUCING THE NETFLOW TRAFFIC ANALYZER 2019.4 RELEASE

We're hard at work building the next iteration of NTA now.  Here's a view into what we're working on:

NTA

  • Reconcile flow volumes for nodes - In certain configurations, interface flow traffic can be incorrectly counted through nodes. We're working on detecting and reconciling flow volumes for the node to more clearly show utilization.
  • Add endpoints to Flow Alerts - Filter application flow alerts to precisely specify traffic sourced from or destined to endpoints or IP groups. Alerts can be applied to interfaces or nodes, filtered to endpoints or groups, and configured for application traffic thresholds.
  • Share IP group definitions with IPAM - Support the use of IP groups created by IPAM in NTA, and improve the IP group creation experience in NTA. This will improve support for custom application definitions, and for flow alerts.
  • Improve support for vSphere distributed vSwitch - Incorporate IPFIX flow data from the dvSwitch and support presentation of the conversations.

Orion Platform improvements

  • UI performance optimizations - Faster and more responsive web UI
  • Centralized upgrades - pre-stage upgrades for reduced downtime

Absolutely, check your PMs in slack!

Thanks for the info

Can you shed some light on "Flow Insights for Palo Alto"?

Nick - we can set up a show and tell for you, and walk it through. PM me!

Very interested as well!

I'm happy to walk you through this as well! 

Both of you will need to make sure you're signed up for the Beta program for either NCM or NTA:

or

PM me and we'll set up the details

I echo my NCM comment here, more vendor support please. 

On Meraki MS, we are able to set a netflow ip collector and port, I tried to send netflow to NTA, but it does not work.
It is supposed to work only on MX devices ? Or MS too ?

What we've been working on includes support for the MX and Z series, and not the switching devices.  Have you downloaded and installed the NTA Beta release?

NTA Beta1 Release Available!

No, I thought it was already in our version (we are testing Solarwinds (NPM/SAM/UDT/NCM/NTA), POC in progress), i saw after my comment that it was on beta version

But if you confirm that meraki integration only concern MX/Z series, I will not try to test

I'm curious to understand what flow actually looks like from the MS series; my understanding is that it's a switching device, so I would not expect to see NetFlow out of this type of device.  Would you be willing to provide a pcap of the flow data that your MS is exporting?

jreves

I'm currently testing Meraki MX65 and MX100, does the beta 1 brings new things ? btw as I'm in POC without license, i'm not autorized to dl "beta (4.7 ?) 1"

(i tried to capture pcap from MS series, but was not able to see incoming traffic, so forgive it !)

Granular NetFlow Alerts is something that will bring value to SW users.

The ability to trigger an alert on maybe a bandwidth hogging host or some host that actually is expected to continuously stream data and suddenly stops will help the NTA cause

I think this would be extremely useful

See

and

Any addition or improvement on support for netstream, sflow?

We support both NetStream and sFlow today - are there specific improvements you'd like to see with those?
