Bottom-K, Cardinality Counting, and other new features in the latest TrisulNSM

We just released a new version of Trisul Network Analytics 6.5. This release features a lot of stability and performance improvements that make it even more attractive to deploy Trisul Network Analytics as your frontline NSM platform (Network Security Monitoring and Traffic Analytics).

This short post will share four nifty things you can use to supercharge your network security monitoring and traffic analytics.

Bottom-K lists

A most common operation that security engineers rely on it to take a particular parameter and see for Bottom-K or “rare keys”. Trisul’s streaming analytics make it trivial to run these types of queries over very long timeframes. The new release allows you to track Bottom-K items for any of the 100s of metrics available in Trisul.

Trisul Network Analytics 6.5 is now available

We are delighted to announce our latest release “Trisul 6.5”. We think this is our best yet. We have rolled into this lessons learnt from watching users of our previous releases and other tools. Our goal is to make Trisul the go-to tool for full blown NSM and deep network traffic analysis. At the same time, we did not want to cut corners in extensibility or performance. Towards that end, this release includes an even better Lua API and across the board improvements in performance.

Best of all, we’ve retained the 3-day sliding window License that lets you get started without any friction in sales calls or canned demos. Just get the bits and go live

What’s in this release
