Playlist "sFlow"


Elisa Jasinska

The explosion of internet traffic is leading to higher bandwidths and an increased need for high speed networks. To analyze and optimize such networks an efficient monitoring system is required. The sFlow standard describes a mechanism to capture traffic data in switched or routed networks. It uses a sampling technology to collect statistics from the device and is for this reason applicable to high speed connections (at gigabit speeds or higher).
