A good number of evaluators have been asking me what’s the best way to evaluate our free virtual Netflow collector. There is a growing trend of companies moving away from dedicated hardware to a virtualized environment. However, there are many options to create such a network. Windows has Hyper-V, which is part of the Windows Server OS, VMware has ESXi to, and KVM meet these virtualization needs. Plixer supports all three of these virtual environments with our Free virtual NetFlow collector, Scrutinizer. Installation of our solution is as simple as deploying the appropriate package to the specific hypervisor.
