Abstract

This paper, presented at FloCon 2005, describes a NetFlow visualization tool, NVisionIP, which provides network administrators increased situational awareness of the state of networked devices within an IP address space. It does this by providing three increasingly detailed views of the state of devices in an entire IP address space to subnets to individual machines. Operators may use NVisionIP to transparently view NetFlow traffic without filtering or may selectively filter and interactively query NVisionIP for unique views given experience or relevant clues.
