KProxy Agent Crack


What is kproxy agent and how to use it?




kproxy agent is a free NetFlow proxy agent provided by Kentik, a network intelligence platform that helps you monitor, troubleshoot, and optimize your network performance. kproxy agent enables you to collect and send flow data (NetFlow v5/v9, IPFIX, and sFlow) and SNMP data from your network devices to Kentik securely and efficiently. kproxy agent also handles rate limiting and resampling as needed to keep your data within your plan limits. In this article, we will explain what kproxy agent does, how it works, and how to install and configure it on your machine.


What does kproxy agent do?




kproxy agent is a lightweight executable that runs on your machine and acts as a proxy between your network devices and Kentik. It collects flow data and SNMP data from your devices and encrypts it locally before forwarding it to Kentik over HTTPS. This way, you can ensure that your data is secure and compliant with your network policies. kproxy agent also performs some processing on the data before sending it to Kentik, such as:

  • Filtering out unwanted traffic based on IP addresses, ports, protocols, etc.



  • Resampling the data to reduce the volume of flows per second (FPS) if it exceeds your plan limits.



  • Adding custom dimensions and tags to enrich the data with additional information.



  • Applying network classification rules to group the data by sites, interfaces, AS groups, etc.




kproxy agent can handle multiple devices and multiple data sources simultaneously. You can configure each device and data source separately using a JSON file or a web interface. You can also monitor the status and performance of kproxy agent using the Kentik portal or the kproxy agent dashboard.


How does kproxy agent work?




kproxy agent works as follows:



  • You install kproxy agent on a machine that has access to your network devices. You can use any operating system that supports Chrome browser, such as Windows, Linux, or Mac OS.



  • You configure kproxy agent using a JSON file or a web interface. You specify the details of each device and data source that you want to collect data from, such as IP address, port number, SNMP community string, etc. You also specify the settings for filtering, resampling, enrichment, and classification of the data.



  • kproxy agent starts listening for flow data and SNMP data from your devices on the specified ports. It also establishes a secure connection with Kentik using HTTPS.



  • kproxy agent receives the data from your devices and processes it according to your settings. It encrypts the data locally and sends it to Kentik over HTTPS.



  • Kentik receives the data from kproxy agent and stores it in its cloud-based database. You can access the data using the Kentik portal or the Kentik API. You can also use various features of Kentik to analyze, visualize, alert, and mitigate the data.




How to install and configure kproxy agent?




To install and configure kproxy agent, you need to follow these steps:



  • Download the kproxy agent executable from [Kentik's website]. You can choose between a standalone version or a portable version that comes with a Chrome-based browser.



  • Run the kproxy agent executable on your machine. You will see a web interface that allows you to configure kproxy agent settings.



  • Enter your Kentik credentials (email and API key) in the web interface. You can find your API key in the [Kentik portal] under Settings > Access & Security > API Keys.



  • Add each device and data source that you want to collect data from in the web interface. You can use the [Add Device] button or import a JSON file with the device settings. You can also edit or delete existing devices using the [Edit] or [Delete] buttons.



  • For each device and data source, specify the following settings in the web interface:




  • Name: A unique name for the device or data source.



  • Type: The type of data that you want to collect, such as NetFlow, IPFIX, sFlow, or SNMP.



  • IP: The IP address of the device or data source.



  • Port: The port number that the device or data source sends data to.



  • SNMP Community: The SNMP community string that the device or data source uses. This is only required for SNMP data.



  • Filter: A filter expression that allows you to exclude unwanted traffic from the data. You can use various operators and operands to create complex filters. For example, you can use `ip.src != 10.0.0.0/8` to filter out traffic from the 10.0.0.0/8 network.



  • Resample: A resample rate that allows you to reduce the volume of FPS if it exceeds your plan limits. You can use a percentage or a ratio to specify the resample rate. For example, you can use `50%` or `1:2` to resample half of the flows.



  • Custom Dimensions: A list of custom dimensions that allows you to add additional information to the data. You can use various variables and functions to create custom dimensions. For example, you can use `ip.src` to add the source IP address as a custom dimension.



  • Tags: A list of tags that allows you to add labels to the data. You can use any text or variable to create tags. For example, you can use `device.name` to add the device name as a tag.



  • Classification: A classification rule that allows you to group the data by sites, interfaces, AS groups, etc. You can use various criteria and actions to create classification rules. For example, you can use `ip.src in 10.0.0.0/8 -> site = "Internal"` to classify traffic from the 10.0.0.0/8 network as internal.




  • Save your settings and start kproxy agent using the [Start] button in the web interface. You can also stop or restart kproxy agent using the [Stop] or [Restart] buttons.



  • Verify that kproxy agent is running and sending data to Kentik using the [Status] tab in the web interface. You can also view the logs and statistics of kproxy agent using the [Logs] and [Stats] tabs.



  • Access your data in Kentik using the [Kentik portal] or the [Kentik API]. You can also use various features of Kentik to analyze, visualize, alert, and mitigate your data.
