Use SteelCentral™ License Units for Network Flow and Packet Mirroring

You can now transfer the same SteelCentral™ license units to also monitor network flows and packet mirroring on cloud servers:

Type Units Description
Flow Generation

3 units per server

This license allows the Backend Agent on a server to monitor traffic and generate network flows (known as SteelFlow Net) for reporting to NetProfiler.

This is especially useful for cloud servers, where you may not have access to routers which would normally generate those network flows for SteelCentral NetProfiler™. Each server with flow generation uses three license units (learn more).

Deploying this also includes the Backend server license for this computer.

Packet Mirroring

4 units per server

This license allows the Backend Agent to monitor and forward network packets to and from this server to SteelCentral AppResponse™ Cloud for further packet analysis. Each server with packet mirroring uses four license units (learn more).

Deploying this also includes the Backend server license for this computer.

To transfer license units to these features, contact Aternity SaaS Administration.
