However, Argus ships a great collection of tools to analyze NetFlow data: • • • 16 merges matching flow records together. racluster merges flow records based on custom criteria. ranonymize anonymizes flow records. org/netsa. 34 TRAFFIC FLOWS The following section shows how these tools enable you to work with traffic-flow data. net) is another tool that enables you to collect NetFlow data. It is fairly similar to Argus, but with some important differences. If you are operating in a bigger environment and you want to collect NetFlow data, you should use nfdump.

The visualizations) in the language express all the facts in the set of data, and only the facts in the data. This sounds very theoretical, but let’s look at it. In Figure 1-5, the length of the bars in the graph does not encode facts from the underlying data. It therefore, does not follow the expressiveness criteria. Although this example might look too obvious, keep this principle in mind when designing your own graphs. After you have generated the graph, think hard about what it really communicates.
