Kibana settings for IPFIX/Netflow


(Janet Sullivan) #1

Every minute, we take a 1/4096 sample of traffic using IPFIX. I want to graph this data as bits/sec in a histogram. However, my math & kibana skills are failing me.

Here is how I think it should be set up, but it's always too low a value for Gbit/s:

Chart Value: total
Value Field: bytes (bytes per minute field)
Scale: 32768 (4096 * 8 bits in a byte)
Seconds, checked
Interval 1m
Y Format bytes

Help? Maybe I'm missing the obvious, but its 2 a.m. and I'm mystified.

I'm tired, I didn't explain that well, we use pmacct to do 1 minute aggregations.

Hi Janets,

currently I am also trying pmacct It's processing result. I am storing data
to elasticsearch, But currently struggling with dashboard creation, can you
share your kibana dashboard file. it's very useful to me.

-Dhanasekaran.

Did I learn something today? If not, I wasted it.

I'd love to know just how you are processing IPFIX data. the current codec in log stash, as far as i know and am told will only process v5/9 net flow? How are you processing your ipfix data into ES?

If possible, could you please share me the sample kibana json file to explore the bytes data into bits/sec ?
