You can analyze the flows by selecting scope and segment them accordingly based on entities such as VLAN/VXLAN, Security Groups, Application, Tier, Folder, Subnet, Cluster, virtual machine (VM), Port, Security Tag, Security Group, and IPSet. The micro-segmentation dashboard provides the analysis details with the topology diagram. This dashboard consists of the following sections:

  • Traffic Distribution: This widget provides the details of the traffic distribution in bytes.

  • Top Ports by Bytes: This widget lists the top 100 ports that record the highest traffic. The metrics for the flow count and the flow volume are provided. You can view the flows for a particular port by clicking the count of flows corresponding to that port.
