Trisul 5.5. is ready for download now !
It took a while but we’re excited to announce the availability of Trisul 5.5.
We spent a lot of time in this release focusing on the scalability aspect. We have streamlined the backend storage architecture to handle streaming of millions of metrics and ability to query them instantly over long time periods. The frontend packet processing pipeline has also been optimized to scale upto 20Gbps. This release also allows you to distribute the probe , storage, and query functions. Trisul 5.5 also features a couple of new counter groups such as “Base Domains” – which normalize traffic by inspecting the CNAME DNS records and counting traffic to different destinations such as Facebook, Twitter, etc.
Needless to say we have fixed a ton of performance and memory issues reported by our customers and users in the previous releases.
Release 5.5 is only available for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and CentOS 7. Those who are running Trisul along with Security Onion have to wait till they update to Ubuntu 14.04.
