What is advanced filtering?
Advanced filtering makes your Talaia dashboard more flexible and dynamic. It allows you to retrieve the plots you are used to, based on a filter that you can express in a very simple way.
What can I do with advanced filtering?
With advanced filtering, you can track network usage for a particular subnet, IP address, port, minimum connection size, etcetera.
How do I express a filter?
Perhaps it’s best to show that with a few examples.
Filtering for a particular IP address: ip 188.8.131.52
Filtering for traffic between two subnets: ip 192.168.0.0/16 and ip 10.0.0.0/8
Filtering for large connections: bytes > 1000000
Filtering for traffic between two interfaces: exporter 10.1.1.5 and face_in 1 and face_out 3
Changes in the User Interface
We have updated our user interface to make room for filters. Most of the information is still right where you expect it - so the transition to the new UI should be very smooth.
We are working hard to further extend the graphing capabilities of Talaia. Next, we are working on a brand new tab where you will be able to create entirely new plots, besides the ones we currently have.
Under the hood
We have built a brand new distributed database that offers: (1) greater performance and uptime, (2) far more flexibility for getting results. Under the hood, Talaia translates your queries to SQL expressions that run blazing fast over a cluster of dedicated servers.
