Insight Analytics Flow Traffic Details


You can drilldown into the data by selecting any widget in the dashboard and clicking on an area of interest. Search and Filtering functions work in an identical manner as described under the Insight Analytics Flow Search & Filtering section.


Each widget contains a pie chart with a color legend that labels each slice of information with a specific color.


When you place your cursor over a name in the legend, the corresponding slice is highlighted in the pie chart. Also, when you place your cursor over a slice, a summary of the information generating the slice is displayed.


In addition to the pie charts, there are two panels that identify the number of applications running on the network, and the number of connections on the networks.


Also, App Count, Connection Count, Average Connection Latency in microseconds, Bytes Timeline by State and Bytes by Switch are displayed.


For example, in the Top Server Domains by Bytes widget, if you click on the top domain, pluribusnetworks.com.
