Viewing Flow Information

This section provides basic instructions for viewing Virtual WAN flow information.

To view flow information, do the following:

  1. Log into the Management Web Interface for the MCN, and select the Monitoring tab. This opens the Monitoring navigation tree in the left pane.

  2. Select the Flows branch in the navigation tree. This displays the Flows page with LAN to WAN preselected in the Flow Type field.

  3. Select the Flow Type. The Flow Type field is located in the Select Flows section at the top of the Flows page. Next to the Flow Type field is a row of checkbox options for selecting the flow information you want to view. You can check one or more boxes to filter the information to be displayed.

  4. Select the Max Flows to Display from the drop-down menu next to that field.

  5. This determines the number of entries to display in the Flows table. The options are: 50, 100, 1000.

  6. (Optional) Enter search text in the Filter field. This filters the table results so that only entries containing the search text display in the table.


    To see detailed instructions for using filters to refine Flow table results, click Help to the right of the Filter field. To close the help display, click Refresh in the bottom left corner of the Select Flows section.

  7. Click Refresh to display the filter results. The below figure shows a sample Flows page filtered display with all flow types selected.

  8. (Optional) Select the columns to include in the table. Do the following:

  9. Click Toggle Columns. The Toggle Columns button is just above the top right corner of the Flows table. This reveals any deselected columns, and opens a checkbox above each column for selecting or deselecting that column. Deselected columns display grayed out, as shown in the below figure.


    By default, all of the columns are selected, which can cause the table to be truncated in the display, obscuring the Toggle Columns button. If so, a horizontal scroll bar displays beneath the table. Slide the scroll bar to the right to view the truncated section of the table and reveal the Toggle Columns button. If the scroll bar is not available, try resizing the width of your browser window until the scroll bar is revealed.

  10. Click a checkbox to select or deselect a column.

  11. Click Apply (above the top right corner of the table). This dismisses the selection options, and refreshes the table to include only the selected columns.
