Netflow architecture. Computer and Network Examples
Netflow is a network protocol used for accounting the IP network traffic. It was developed by Cisco Systems. Now it is actually the industrial standard, it is supported by many devices. There are several versions of the protocol, but the most common are the versions 5 and 9.
To collect the information about the IP network traffic on the Netflow protocol are required the following components:
- The Sensor that collects statistics about the network traffic passing through it. Usually it is switch or router.
- The Collector that collects coming from a sensor data and puts them to the storage.
- The Analyzer that analyzes the collected data and forms the reports a suitable person read reports (often in the form of diagrams).

Cloud Computing Architecture DiagramsFor documenting the Cloud Computing Architecture with a goal to facilitate the communication between stakeholders are successfully used the Cloud Computing Architecture diagrams. It is convenient and easy to draw various Cloud Computing Architecture diagrams in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM v12 software with help of tools of the Cloud Computing Diagrams Solution from the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
Network diagrams with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM v12Of course it is possible to keep network records in text documents, but it is very difficult to use them later. A more sound way to keep such documentation is to create a network diagram that might represent either logical network structure or physical. These diagrams are easy to understand and you will thank yourself later. There is a physical network diagram. It is a tool to represent, maintain and analysis of network equipment and interconnections. Network diagram depicts the actual network information in the attractive clear graphic form. One can learn here the LAN cable length, telecommunication type and carrying capacity. The diagram depicts servers, IP address and domain name as well. Also it shows location of hubs, switches, modems, routers, and other network equipment. The sets of special symbols and images delivered with ConceptDraw Network Diagrams solution are used to show network components. Symbols have a standard view. Therefore, various specialists can read the network diagram without any discrepancies.
Design Pictorial Infographics. Design InfographicsIn the course of recent decades data visualization went through significant development and has become an indispensable tool of journalism, business intelligence and science. The way visual information may be conveyed is not limited simply to static or dynamic representation, it can also be interactive. Infographics can be conditionally divided into several general levels. Primarily, this is level of visualization of information, its interpretation and association on any ground. Second level can be defined as a visualization of knowledge, depiction of thoughts and ideas in the form of images or diagrams. Finally, the level of data visualization, which processes data arrays in charts, enabling the information to be more clearly perceived. You can also identify the main approaches to the creation of infographics: exploratory and narrative. Exploratory method insists on minimalist design in favor of data precision without unnecessary details and is common for scientific researches and ana

Building Drawing Design Element Site PlanThese libraries of vector objects depict the Site Accessories and Parking and Roads elements. They are needed to draw architectural and landscape plans that show the architectural elements around buildings: parking spaces, hiking and biking trails, drainage systems, lights, and vehicle access control elements. These libraries are included into ConcepDraw solution for Site Planning. Site Accessories and Parking, Roads libraries contain near 40 vector images that will help depict an a surrounding territory at building plans.

EIGRP. Computer and Network ExamplesThe Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP) is a progressive distance-vector dynamic routing protocol. It was developed by the Cisco Systems and is available as an open standard from 2013. EIGRP is used to help automate routing decisions and configuration of the computer network. It allows the routers of the same logical area automatically share route information.
Storage area networks (SAN). Computer and Network ExamplesA Storage area network (SAN) is a dedicated network that provides access to data storage and operations only on the block level. SAN usually has own network of storage devices/elements and disk arrays that are connected with each other and to a remote data-sharing network. SANs are widely used for enhancing the storage devices (optical jukeboxes, disk arrays, tape libraries) that are accessible for networked servers. This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM v12 using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. It shows the hybrid of Storage area network (SAN) and Network Attached Storage (NAS) technologies.
Tree Network Topology DiagramWhen designing a network, it is important to take into account the hierarchy of network devices. When you have a root device you should consider a tree network topology that might have any number of lower levels as you might need. This technology is based on star and bus network topologies. This is a schematic representation of a Tree computer network topology. A tree topology means that some star networks are linked together. A star network is a topology of the local network where a central workstation is connected with each end-user computer or peripherals. A tree structure means that, the central nodes of these star networks are linked to a main cable (the Bus topology). So, a Tree network topology is a few Star networks connected into a Bus topology. This scheme can be applied to draw the particular physical or logical network diagrams using the ConceptDraw Computer and Networks solution.
