We've just released NFA v 2.08 with several improvements and some cool new features to help take your IP flow analysis to the next level! Although the focus of this update was to improve the software's performance and provide support for Ubuntu, you'll notice a few new additions as well.
Support for Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
We recognize the need to have flexibility regarding the choice of platforms and operating systems. That is why we've now added support for another popular Linux distribution. Besides support for CentOS, Noction Flow Analyzer can now be installed on servers running Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.
Prefix and IP range filtering options
There's now an option in NFA's Data Explorer, Dashboards, Alerts, and the BGP section to filter the results by a specific prefix, a group of prefixes, or ip ranges. Click the "+ > Add condition" option and select either the Source or Destination ip filter. Like with the individual IP addresses, you can input as many IP address ranges and/or prefixes as you need.
The full changelog with all the new features, improvements, and bug fixes is available upon request.
To update to the latest NFA version, please perform:
yum update nfa\*
Once updated, it is recommended to verify the components:
systemctl list-dependencies nfa.target
systemctl restart nfabgpd
