Network Visibility Command Line Tool for Nerds
November 21, 2019
Sometimes you just need to dive into real-time traffic data to solve a problem on your network. The Netify Console tool lets you pinpoint root causes from the command line: connection issues, BitTorrent saturation, malware infections, and general shenanigans.
Netify Console for ClearOS
The console is currently available for ClearOS, but please feel free to drop us a line - firstname.lastname@example.org - if you are interested in seeing this ported to other platforms. To install the console tool on ClearOS, run:
yum --enablerepo=clearos-epel,clearos-contribs localinstall http://download.netify.ai/netify/clearos/7/stable/x86_64/netify-console-latest.noarch.rpm
This command will install the Netify Console (netify-console) tool and the Netify Engine (netifyd). If you already had the Netify, Application Filter, or Protocol Filter apps installed, the netifyd engine will already be installed. If you don't have any of these other apps installed and running, start up the Netify Engine with:
systemctl start netifyd
Finally, start the console tool:
Use Ctrl-C to exit the console, and run systemctl if you no longer need the Netify Engine running. Please see the Netify Console Documentation for usage details.
