Comprehensive user manual for NetFlow Auditor Standard and Enterprise Editions.

Config: Time Zone

NetFlow Auditor collector can process multiple netflow streams from different routers/switches, which may be located in different time zones.

The NetFlow Auditor collector uses its own system clock to time stamp the flow data. Each distributed NetFlow Auditor collector's system clock must be aligned to the same time as the NetFlow Auditor Hierarchical server when multi-collectors are deployed.

The local servers time zone can be configured using the left menu "Configuration > Administrator > Site Configuration".



Every screen including the "Overview", "Visualization", "Multiview" and "Forensics" has a "Time Zone" option in the Filter Tab, which can be configured to allow the flows to be viewed from a local or original different time zone perspective.

The users default time zone will be used by default. The user default time zone can be changed at the left menu "My Analytics > Default Options".



The Forensics and Multiview scheduled reports also allow time zone to be configured which allows a report to be generated from a different time zone perspective to the server.
