Monitor all your IPv4 network traffic
Systematically identify potential security leaks and incoming and outgoing data in your networks with flow logs. Based on the continuous capture of inbound and outbound traffic, flow logs are created for any interfaces of your virtual machines (VM) and Cloud Cubes in the IONOS Cloud virtual data centre (VDC), as well as public interfaces monitoring the traffic of your Managed NAT Gateway or Network Load Balancer.
You can also use flow logs to verify that your firewall is functioning properly, proactively detect any connectivity issues, and integrate reliable logging of all connections within your network.
Save logs in S3 Object Storage
Flow logs enable you to expand your data basis and improve the performance and security of your networks and applications. Using comprehensive network information to understand how and in what way traffic is generated, you create a foundation for efficient debugging.
We also store the data collected by flow logs at regular intervals directly in your S3 Object Storage. This means you can manage even large volumes of data cost-effectively while benefiting from extremely high reliability.
Configure flow logs to your needs any time in the Data Center Designer or via Cloud API.
