InMon sFlow-RT

sFlow-RT incorporates InMon's asynchronous sFlow analytics engine (patent pending), delivering real-time visibility in Software Defined Networking (SDN) stacks and enabling new classes of performance aware SDN application such as load balancing and DDoS protection.

The diagram shows sFlow-RT's position in the SDN stack. The sFlow-RT analytics engine receives a continuous stream of sFlow datagrams from network devices and converts them into actionable metrics, accessible through a REST API. The RESTflowâ„¢ API makes it easy for each SDN application to configure customized measurements, retrieve metrics, set thresholds, and receive notifications. Applications respond to changing network traffic by instructing the controller to adapt the network. In the diagram, an OpenFlow controller uses the OpenFlow protocol to communicate with network devices and modify their forwarding behavior.
