  6. 6. Layer 7 Filtering through DPI• Improves monitoring tool efficiency by sending tools the exact data streams they need to inspect• Search anywhere in the entire packet payload o Filtering on HTTP header information o Filtering on custom application fields• Pattern-matching in the L5-L7 headers and the packet payload o Each pattern is one or two strings up to 64 characters long o Strings can be in hex or ASCII format • E.g. Detect leaks of confidential information Protocol= String 1 = Network Port 1 TCP Confidential Monitor Port 1 © 2012 by Net Optics, Inc.
  7. 7. Dynamic Load Balancing• Optimize tool’s utilization when traffic is unpredictable• Multi-unit system: the input and outputs of the flow balancer can cross chassis boundaries freely• Supports multiple load balancing modes o Flow based o Non flow based o Link state aware o N+1 redundancy o Overflow mode © 2012 by Net Optics, Inc.
  8. 8. ProPushTM Statistics• Statistics for each Pro filter include, o Byte counts and packet counts for total in, total out o Load balance outputs o Protocol distribution (IPv4, IPv6, TCP, UDP, ARP, ICMP)• Send statistics to up to 5 management systems• User configurable frequency (1-30 sec interval) © 2012 by Net Optics, Inc.
  9. 9. Extended Filtering• Enables efficient use of monitoring tools by eliminating unwanted traffic• Supports exact ranges for IP addresses, ports, MAC addresses, and VLANs• Filter on Ethertype to identify L2/L3 protocols• Filter on MPLS label to analyze MPLS traffic © 2012 by Net Optics, Inc.
