    As a matter of fact, I played with the now deprecated Elastiflow, however I couldn't get my head around managing ELK, scrapped it pretty quickly, and Netflow did not reach the meaningful stage at that time. OpenNMS looks pretty massive that I can't run it at the moment. Thanks for suggestion though.

    One thing I ran for a while was security onion and utilized port mirroring to mirror the uplink port from my primary switch to my LAN on my router, so I was catching anything coming into/out of my network destined for internet. I've also used ElastiFlow ( https://github.com/robcowart/elastiflow ) which is absolutely phenomenal and awesome, I did the same and it provides some great data. You could also leverage IntelOwl ( https://github.com/intelowlproject/IntelOwl ) , one thing I have added to all my VMs is a OSSEC agent, Wazuh to be specific which is free ( https://github.com/wazuh/wazuh ) and while I am not using it to its full potential such as monitoring file deletions/modifications etc it is a powerful tool.

    I'd recommend taking a look at Elastiflow (link is to the legacy version, I haven't used the pay structured tier version that replaced it) as a flow collector. Do it in a docker container, dump netflow to it, and use a sample rate that doesn't fill your collector box with flow packets after a single day. Depends on your traffic rates. We use 1 out of 250 for our rate.

    Looks like that's deprecated, https://github.com/robcowart/elastiflow/ Any reason not to try the new one? https://docs.elastiflow.com/docs/

    I was using ElastiFlow which no longer appears to be fully open source and has moved to some kind of paid model. You can use it fully features via Github : https://github.com/robcowart/elastiflow , or you can try your hand at the "next generation" of ElastiFlow which is here : https://docs.elastiflow.com/docs/
  • Looking for a netflow monitoring solution

    Whilst elastiflow has moved on and become more 'commercial', the original Github source remains, and has a lot of very useful information for setting it up. Works very well with sflow/netflow/ipfix. I have pfSense, and JunOS exporting to a Ubuntu 18.04 running Elastic 7.14.
  • Which application do you use to monitor each IP's traffic in the network?
    1 project | reddit.com/r/networking | 4 Aug 2021
    You can setup netflow with tools like this https://github.com/robcowart/elastiflow but that huge amount of information really won't solve anything beyond trying to find the target IP faster. You will need a switch/router that has netflow to make use of this, and in the end you'll still be contacting your ISP to tell them what to nullroute.

    Combined with elastic (I've used this before), should be able to achieve this.
