Hi ,

We have recently released the new Noction Flow Analyzer v 21.09, offering users a variety of new features and capabilities.

Check out the details of what we’ve rounded up in this month’s release:

New MPLS and pseudowire filtering and grouping options

Support for the following elements have been added:

  • 46 (NFv9 - MPLS_TOP_LABEL_TYPE; IPFIX - mplsTopLabelType)
  • 47 (NFv9 - MPLS_TOP_LABEL_IP_ADDR; IPFIX - mplsTopLabelIPv4Address)
  • 90 (NFv9 - MPLS PAL RD; IPFIX - mplsVpnRouteDistinguisher)
  • 91 (NFv9 - MPLS PREFIX LEN; IPFIX - mplsTopLabelPrefixLength)
  • 140 (IPFIX - mplsTopLabelIPv6Address)

BGP Community filtering/grouping in Data Explorer and the BGP reports

No matter if you are a service provider, a hosting company, an enterprise, etc., BGP visibility is important. We hope that adding a BGP community filtering and grouping option in this release will help you gain more visibility into how traffic moves through your internal BGP network, your next-hop ASNs, detect peering infrastructure outages, and more.

Other new features and capabilities include the improved dashboard creating and editing dialog, a grouping by prefix option when setting up alerts, the improved user password length and complexity constraint, and more.

The detailed changelog is available upon request.
