Talaia lets you define and observe meaningful partitions of your traffic separately.
We call such partitions views.

Why do you need views?

1: Organisation

By default, Talaia shows traffic in four views:

  • All (all traffic being received by Talaia)
  • LAN in (traffic from public IP addresses to private IP addresses)
  • LAN out (traffic from private IP addresses to public IP addresses)
  • LAN internal (traffic between private IP addresses)

Even though this is already useful, it is often more convenient to be able to focus on different parts of the network, rather than these global aggregate views.

For this reason, Talaia allows the user to define network views, or just views for short. A view is a traffic partition for which all reports, statistics, and graphics are generated independently.

Using views, it is possible to separately analyse the traffic of a few subnetworks of interest, or just the incoming or outgoing traffic, for example. This offers an opportunity to organise the information gathered by Talaia at your convenience.

2: Flexibility

You can define views to see whatever you want. Views are configured by specifying a traffic filter. The syntax for defining such a filter is flexible and powerful, so you can really partition your traffic as you prefer.

3: Simplicity

Last but not least, views are very easy to create. Basically, you only have to define the corresponding filter.
