Community Edition

FastNetMon - A high performance DDoS detector / sensor built on top of multiple packet capture engines: NetFlow, IPFIX, sFlow, AF_PACKET (port mirror).

What do we do?

We detect hosts in the deployed network sending or receiving large volumes of traffic, packets/bytes/flows per second and perform a configurable action to handle that event. These configurable actions include notifying you, calling script or making BGP announces.

Flow is one or more ICMP, UDP, or TCP packets which can be identified via their unique src IP, dst IP, src port, dst port, and protocol fields.
