    GO WITH THE FLOW!!!!!!

    Are you a network administrator who wants to build a flow-based network management system? If you are, then this book is for you. Author Michael W. Lucas, has done an outstanding job of writing a book that shows you how to build a flow-based network management system out of any free Unix-like operating system, freely available software, and existing network hardware.

    Lucas, begins by introducing flows. Next, the author discusses flow export and how to configure it in both hardware and software; as well as, how to collect those flow records from many different network devices using the industry-standard flow-tools software package. Then, he shows you how to view the flow records you've gathered. The author continues by demonstrating filtering flows that display only interesting data. Next, he shows you how flow-tools support a wide variety of reports. Then, he covers FlowScan, web-based software that offers traffic graphs to your users. The author continues by covering FlowViewer, another web-based tool that lets you deeply dissect your traffic. Next, he shows you how to use gnuplot to create graphs of truly arbitrary floe data. Finally, the author discusses some flow collection edge cases and how you can use flow records to proactively improve your network.

    This most excellent book provides the tools and real-world examples you need to effectively analyze your network flow data. In other words, now you can determine what the network problem is long before your customers report it.
