Router Monitoring (Netflow): Network Traffic

Router Monitoring is an additional feature where Silverline receives flow data directly from your router. If you are interested in turning on this feature, please contact your Silverline Sales representative.

Router Monitoring: Overview

Netflow sends sampled data about "flow" of traffic passing through the customer network to Silverline Collectors. That data is analyzed in realtime, looking for known patterns indicating potential attacks, characterized by multiple signature types. The F5 Silverline SOC team uses this information to proactively mitigate attacks, protecting customer networks.
