Raw Data files store flow records exported in a 5-minute interval.
Raw Data Tree groups Raw Data files in folders according to the day/hour/minute. Selecting a node from the tree allows inspection of specific Raw Data files.
Inspecting Raw Data
To inspect Raw Data:
Go To NetFlow > Raw Data > Files
Specify time period in Time Window. The main panel and Raw Data Tree will show gathered files
Select files you want to inspect from the Main Panel (or alternatively, select a single file from Raw Data Tree)
Click Show Selected
Raw Data table shows flow records from the selected Raw Data file(s). Data can be filtered, grouped and sorted the by almost any field (source IP address, Bytes, Protocol etc.).
Clicking on Names button provides IP address resolution. If you move your mouse cursor over specific IP address you can see WhoIs information about that host.
On this page:
In order to enable IP address resolution, your NetVizura server should have local or remote communication with DNS server (for Hostname) and Internet access (for Whois information).
Exporting Raw Data
Raw Data table can be exported as a CSV file in order to present captured netflow records as a report to a third party or for further analysis.
To export Raw Data, click on the the Export button in the upper right corner of the Raw Data Table.
Depending on the amount of data, export can last a couple of minutes
Depending on your browser settings, browser may ask you were to save the file or it will save the file to a default folder (usually Downloads folder). Some spreadsheet software may ask you which separator to use when opening the file - select Comma.
Grouping, filtering and sorting the raw data table will affect the CSV as well. This will also make a CSV file much smaller.
