Abstract: In this presentation we describe a set of visualization techniques that can help the task of operating and managing a network by representing network traffic information in a concise and intuitive manner. Our client/server tool is called Flamingo.

The Flamingo server is responsible for receiving raw NetFlow feeds from devices in the network that can sample traffic, and then sending processed information to the client for display. The Flamingo client receives data from the server and provides concise intuitive data visualizations, 3D space navigation, as well as filtering capabilities that can help the operator to extract or monitor specific information of interest. We illustrate, with the help of simple examples, how Flamingo can be used to perform network monitoring tasks as well as network security-related data forensics.
