Configure Flow Mapping®

Flow Mapping® is the technology found in GigaVUE nodes that takes line-rate traffic at 1Gb, 10Gb, 40Gb, or 100Gb from a network TAP or a SPAN/mirror port (physical or virtual) and sends it through a set of user-defined map rules to the tools and applications that secure, monitor, and analyze IT infrastructure.
