Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
FlowStats is a Netflow collector. It currently understands and parses Netflow version 1 and version 5 packets. Simply configure your router to export NetFlow and start the app up and it will tell you what's flowing through the router now. It is intended for use by network administrators that need quick access to exported Netflow information while troubleshooting. It can help pinpoint troublesome hosts as well as help with capacity planning. Tables of information displayed include Top Talkers, Top Receivers and the Latest 1000 flows as seen by the router.
NOTE: FlowStats version 1.0 does not support Netflow version 9.
*** This application supports Netflow only, which is generally only supported by Cisco routers and switches. It will not work with SOHO-type routers like Linksys, D-Link, Airport, etc.
Please read the information displayed when pressing the Help button on the toolbar to configure your routers to export Netflow information.
What's New in Version 1.2
* Top Services chart
* Increased top talkers and top receivers to 1000
* Increased last X flows to 10,000
* Added settings window (Listen on Start, Resolve IPs)
* Fixed bug in flows table not updating when flows count is 0
* Added ARIN search to Toolbar
* Made IP columns double-clickable for copy/paste into ARIN search
* Added Flow IP Filter
Simple and Works great for a quick chart of netflow data
Great Application!!! for network visability with a network that supports netflow!! I used this with flow-tools to capture netflow information and then resend to FlowStats only the filtered data and timespan I want to see traffic detail.
Resolve IPs, blanks charts for me.
Feature request - Top Services lists conversations twice by matching on source and destination port
-- would like 3 check boxes on Top Services chart
---- Include sending services (ports)
---- Include receiving services (ports)
---- limit to well known services (port 1023 and below)
Works with DD-WRT’s RFlow
I can confirm FlowStats works with DD-WRT’s RFlow. I’d give it 5 stars if the data persisted across reboots.
This app is mentioned in the "Identify bandwidth hog” post of the For Make Benefit blog.
