The screen shot is from a live demonstration of network-wide large flow detection and tracking using standard sFlow instrumentation build into switches in the SCInet network. Currently multiple vendor's switches, 1,223 ports, with speeds up to 100Gbit/s, are sending sFlow data.
Note: The network is currently being set up, traffic levels will build up and reach a peak next week during the SC13 show (Nov. 17-22). Visit the demonstration site next week to see live traffic on one of the worlds busiest networks: http://inmon.sc13.org/dash/The sFlow-RT real-time analytics engine is receiving the sFlow and centrally tracking large flows. The HTML5 web pages poll the analytics engine every half second for the largest 100 flows in order to update the charts, which represent large flows as follows:
- Dot an IP address
- Circle a logical grouping of IP addresses
- Line width represents bandwidth consumed by flow
- Line color identifies traffic type
