What is Noction Flow Analyzer?

Noction Flow Analyzer is a flow-based monitoring and reporting software which collects, stores and presents traffic data across the entire network and protocols to network professionals for future analysis. The product enables engineers to optimize their networks and applications performance, control bandwidth utilization, do the proper network capacity planning, perform detailed BGP peering analysis, improve security and minimize network incidents response time.

Supported Protocols

• NetFlow    • J-Flow    • sFlow    • IPFIX    • NetStream    • SNMP    • BGP

Features Highlights

Network Traffic Monitoring

Noction Flow Analyzer offers you a complete, up to the minute network traffic visibility on bandwidth usage, conversations, subnets, traffic usage by application, traffic distribution by locations, top prefixes, top ASNs and a lot more.

Intuitive Dashboards and Widgets

To keep a close eye on your network traffic, use NFA’s default widgets and dashboards or configure personalized ones with a vast selection of filters and metrics. Alternatively, craft your own queries and drill down deep by using Noction Flow Analyzer Data Navigator to explore the current and historical flow data.

Vigilant Alerting System

Know about your network traffic issues before they affect your business. Setup a multitude of utilization, duration and frequency threshold-based alerts or adjust the existing ones for your needs. Have them delivered via individual notification channels such as email or a specific Slack channel.

Get notified when the UDP or certain Application traffic spikes occur, when no flows are received for more than a preset time interval, when the bandwidth thresholds are exceeded or any other possible scenario.

System Requirements

Hardware Requirements:

  • x86_64 architecture
  • Minimum 4x core CPU (8x core CPU recommended), SSE4.2 support
  • Minimum 32GB of RAM (64GB RAM recommended; 128GB RAM – optimal)
  • Minimum 250GB SSD storage (500GB SSD storage recommended) allocated to the /var partition


Software Requirements:

  • Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

Please note that NFA can also be installed on a server running CentOS 7 x86_64 Minimal – Clean Install or RHEL 8. The minimum system requirements assume default configuration. Significantly increasing the flow collection rate might cause additional load on a server, thus requiring extra memory or a larger CPU.

Hardware resources depend on the amount of flows/s exported to NFA. For each additional 1,000 flows/sec, 1 GB of RAM and 0.2 of vCPU are required. An additional 2 GB of RAM and 4 vCPU are required when the BGP add-on is used. Values are directly proportional: RAM and vCPU numbers per 1,000 flows/sec.

For instance: 40,000 flows/sec will require 40 GB of RAM and 8 vCPU, plus 2 GB of RAM and 4 vCPU in case a BGP add-on is used.
