Kentik - Network Flow Analytics


See every network, all the time, in real time. For the networks you own and the ones you don’t. Kentik allows you to get insight into all of your networks, whatever the type, across cloud and traditional networks, and across internal and external networks.

Amazon Web Services

Kentik combines AWS VPC Flow Logs with AWS tags, and Amazon EKS Kubernetes service mappings, to provide visibility into your AWS infrastructure.

See traffic to, from, and in between your VPCs, corporate networks, and the internet. Get notified of performance, cost, and security issues, and drill in via UI or API to debug and resolve.

Kentik also integrates with virtual cloud routers, firewalls, load balancers, and host agents to provide real-time flow data and can be easily used in addition to or instead of Flow Log-based visibility.


  • Understand network performance of applications and workloads hosted in AWS
  • Recognize network cost drivers and unexpected usage that will result in surplus networking charges
  • Detect attack, mis-configured, and malicious traffic in and between VPCs

Google Cloud Platform

Stop flying blind. Streamed to Kentik’s analytics-as-a-service platform in real-time every 5 seconds, Google VPC Flow Logs provide powerful insights into all network activity to, from, and between VMs within GCP projects without having to instrument VMs or services individually. Add in GKE Kubernetes service and pod data, or Istio as a data source, to see a full view of the dynamics of your container mesh.

Integrating data from GCP-deployed virtual cloud routers, firewalls, load balancers, and host agents can provide even greater visibility.


  • Understand which application dependencies drive traffic between zones, regions, and locations
  • Recognize network cost drivers in time to correct them, not after they become billable
  • Proactively monitor application latencies to get ahead of service quality problems

Data Center

Gain deep, direct insights into east-west traffic and changes to applications or infrastructure. Leverage real-time, granular visibility to quickly investigate issues, drill down to root causes, and inform your response. Integrate with data center and microservices integration to gain visibility into the traffic dynamics of your traditional and cloud-native network deployments.


  • Proactively detect congestion, hot-spots, outages, and other traffic anomalies
  • Quickly uncover root cause by drilling down on top contributors and understanding how they map to physical or logical infrastructure
  • Optimize VM, container, and service placements to minimize network load


Get a single-pane view of traffic flow across your entire app stack, regardless of whether components are deployed in one or more private, public, or hybrid clouds, or are provided across the Internet by CDNs or as API-accessible services. Zoom in for high-resolution details of individual flows, and out for holistic views of overall service health and user experience.


  • Understand service dependencies between new and old infrastructure
  • Plan and benchmark application migration projects
  • Plan capacity investment by seeing volume trends between on- and off-net service locations

Container Networking

Containers are changing the way applications are designed, deployed, and operated. Orchestration like Kubernetes abstracts away the underlying network and infrastructure types - yet application operation still depends on reliable infrastructure.

Kentik integrates with traffic sources from the lower level (Flow Logs and physical and logical flow sources from data centers), service mappings from Kubernetes and orchestrators, and service meshes like Istio, to provide a complete real-time map of traffic dynamics within and between your applications and services.


  • Understand service and pod dependencies within container orchestration environments
  • See and detect service-to-service latency events to optimize overall application performance within container clusters
  • Tie network traffic loads and costs to specific application components, rather than nodes

Internet and Edge

In an interconnected world, the internet is the key glue that binds your company, users, applications, and partners. Whether you are providing or consuming internet access or transit, you need direct visibility into exactly how much and what types of traffic are traversing the network edge, and who is driving the activity. This understanding is essential for troubleshooting problems, optimizing capacity and performance, and protecting assets and services from misuse and attack.


  • Get deep, rich visibility into edge traffic activity, by source and dest address, geo, service type, ASN, and more.
  • Recognize internet route issues and their impact on performance and customer quality of experience.
  • Understand drivers of access and transit costs.
  • Accurately identify attacks and malicious activity, and automatically invoke mitigating response.
