Aggregating Sources

You can aggregate (organize) traffic metrics handled by one or more specific network interfaces into single views using aggregate sources. Aggregate sources can be selected like other sources for purposes of dashboards and reporting. An aggregate source combines data from all of the assigned interfaces, and reports on that data as if it originated from a single Network Traffic Analysis source.

Create an aggregate source:

  1. Go to SETTINGS menu > Network Traffic Analysis > NTA Sources.

    The NTA Source Library displays.

  2. Select Add > Aggregate Source.

    The Interface Aggregation dialog displays.

  3. Type in and select the following.
    • Aggregate Name. Type in a name for your group of interfaces. For example, Aggregated Interfaces from Proxy to Load Balancer.
    • Enable Interface Aggregation. Click the checkbox to enable these interfaces to be counted against your Network Traffic Analysis licensing.
    • Interfaces. Click Add to browse for and select interfaces to add to your aggregate source.
  4. Click OK and check the NTA Sources Library for your new aggregate source.
