Review: Network Flow Analysis

Network Flow Analysis
Network Flow Analysis by Michael Lucas

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book is great if you are just getting started and not familiar with network flows. It walks you through all the steps you need from configuring your sensors and collectors to setting up a flow reporting system. I did give the book 4/5 stars because there are a few mistakes and shortcuts. It's nothing that an experienced network admin can't overcome but is a little frustrating. Like most technical books, some of the software and websites have changed. Just be prepared to do a little searching as you work through the book.

Overall, the content is spot on and I would recommend this to any network admin who is responsible for performance and maintenance.
