How do I access AuvikFlow reports?

AuvikFlow (Kentik) only appears in the side navigation bar if you’re subscribed to AuvikFlow. If you’re interested in AuvikFlow, contact sales. They’ll walk you through the AuvikFlow subscription details and get you set up with a Kentik account.

To access reports, click AuvikFlow (Kentik) in the side navigation bar from either your MSP dashboard or a client dashboard. From there, click the appropriate tab to access each of the available reports.

Devices that have been mapped to Kentik include the AuvikFlow navigation option when you’re viewing the dashboard for the device.

What can I see in an AuvikFlow report?

Each report shows you a graph and list of the top devices. You can see a report for all AuvikFlow-enabled devices, or you can click on a specific device by clicking the Kentik Device Name column.

You can jump to a specific device dashboard. To do so, click a device name in the Mapped Auvik Device column in any of the Kentik reports.

Just like graphs available on your client networks, you can select a specific date range for viewing the report detail. For AuvikFlow reports, we maintain only 90 days of data. If you select a date range longer than three months, you’ll only see detail from the last 90 days.

Which AuvikFlow reports are available?

There are six AuvikFlow reports available for the devices that have been mapped to your Kentik integration:

On each tab, you can use filters to show only certain details. For more information on filtering, see How to filter data in Auvik.

Top Flows

AuvikFlow (Kentik) Top Flows reports all information on the top 100 TCP and UDP connections. Top Flows show the following information:

  • Connection protocol
  • Source and destination IP address
  • Source and destination ports
  • Average, maximum, and 95th percentile of bandwidth used on that connection
  • Total amount of information transferred between a device or IP address

You can use this information to see who the top talkers are, how much data was transferred between two nodes, as well as which ports are being used (HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, etc.). You can use this information to block high bandwidth sites or limit the amount of bandwidth allowed for those specific sites.

IP to IP Flows

AuvikFlow (Kentik) IP to IP Flows reports on the top 100 source and destination IP addresses. IP to IP Flows shows the following information:

  • Source and destination IP address
  • Average, maximum, and 95th percentile of bandwidth used on that connection
  • Total amount of information transferred between a device or IP address

This report can help you narrow down which IP addresses are using the most bandwidth.

Source IP

AuvikFlow (Kentik) Source IP reports on the top 100 source IP addresses. These will be mostly public IPs. Source IP Flows shows the following information:

  • Source IP address
  • Average, maximum, and 95th percentile of bandwidth used on that connection
  • Total amount of information transferred between a device or IP address

This report can help you detect the most frequently used site. You can use this information to create firewall rules or bandwidth throttling to help control sites that use a lot of bandwidth.

Destination IP

AuvikFlow (Kentik) Destination IP reports on the top 100 destination IP addresses. These will most likely be private or local IP addresses. Destination IP shows the following information:

  • Destination IP addresses
  • Average, maximum, and 95th percentile of bandwidth used on that connection
  • Total amount of information transferred between a device or IP address

This report shows you which device on your local network is using the most bandwidth. You can then create bandwidth throttling rules to limit the total amount of bandwidth that a device can use.

Source Port

AuvikFlow (Kentik) Source Port reports on the top 100 source ports being used. Source Port shows the following information:

  • Source port
  • Average, maximum, and 95th percentile of bandwidth from that port

This report can show you which service or port is being used on your network. You can use this information to block any heavily used ports using the firewall's policy.

Destination Port

AuvikFlow (Kentik) Destination Port reports on the top 100 destination ports being used. Destination Port shows the following information:

  • Destination port
  • Average, maximum, and 95th percentile of bandwidth to that port
  • Total amount of information transferred to that port

This report can be used to determine how much traffic is being used by a web server or any other hosted service on your network. You can use this information to make sure enough bandwidth is being allocated to your services.
