NetObserv Introduction

ElastiFlow NetObserv

ElastiFlow NetObserv receives, decodes, transforms, normalizes, translates and enriches network flow records and telemetry sent from network devices and applications using SNMP, IPFIX, Netflow, sFlow and Cloud Flow Logs. The resulting records can be sent to various platforms and services, including:

  • Elasticsearch
  • Elastic Cloud
  • Elastic Cloud Enterprise
  • OpenSearch
  • AWS OpenSearch Service
  • Apache Kafka
  • Confluent Platform
  • Redpanda
  • Splunk
  • Cribl Stream

Support for additional data platforms is planned for future releases. Please reach out to if you have specific requirements that you would like to discuss.

Additionally flow records can be enriched with threat information and IP reputation tags provided via the ElastiFlow NetIntel service. This allows for suspicious network activity and at-risk resources to be easily identified and mitigated.


The provided dashboards and additional features are easily imported to provide a turnkey solution, which delivers instant insights into network traffic.
