Anyway to group the NetFlow V5 sensor by IP



Ideally I'd like to be able to add a filter on the TopList's so I can see the breakdown of traffic to specific servers.

Currently the only way I can do this is by adding an additional sensor on the same filter and just apply the filter there. This works, but I think have filters on toplist's might be even more powerful.

Hello Ross,
thank you for your inquiry.

You're correct, currently the only way to achieve this is by adding new sensors based on the same flow with distinct filters. Toplists don't yet support filtering, but adding new sensors to the same "Flow Traffic" shouldn't have a big performance impact on your server.

Best Regards,
