With the release of PVE 3.0, the Proxmox VE Web-Interface does no longer require Apache.
Instead using a standard WebServer, Proxmox team is now proud to use a new event-driven API-Server called ‘pveproxy’ listening on TCP Port 8006 and delivering contents via HTTPS using a self-signed certificate.
Proxying pveproxy behind NgiNX will prevent direct access to the event-driven API-Server, let the administrator to (optionally) add a second layer HTTP authentication, to configure a standard HTTPS TCP port to reach the admin panel and to use his own SSL certificates.
Proxmox VE installation can’t be done from scratch to a Software-RAID Device (MD RAID).
Here is a simple guide covering this kind of setup, doing some post-install work.
NFSen (NetFlow SENsor) is a Web-Based Front-End for the nfdump netflow tools.
NfSen is very useful and allows network administrators to:
Display netflow data: Flows, Packets and Bytes using RRD (Round Robin Database).
Easily navigate through the netflow data.
Process the netflow data within the specified time span.
Create history as well as continuous profiles.
Set alerts, based on various conditions.
Customize and Create plugins to process netflow data on a regular interval.
The installation on Linux can be tricky, here I’ll show my way (using, where possibole, distribution supported apt packages) in Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS.
NetFlow is a tool used to export flows of traffic that transit through an interface on a router.
NetFlow version 5, 8 and 9 support IPv4, only version 9 supports IPv6, the default transport used is UDP.
Flows should be analyzed locally in the router or sent to a NetFlow Server periodically to permit a deeper and more convenient analysis.
