ExtremeAnalytics Tab Overview

The ExtremeAnalytics tab allows you to view and customize its dashboard and browser, as well as ExtremeAnalytics reports, fingerprints, and application flow data. You can also manage and configure your ExtremeAnalytics engines.

Additionally, the Menu icon () at the top right of the screen provides links to additional information about your version of ExtremeCloud IQ Site Engine.

  NOTE: ExtremeAnalytics reports and application flow data is not available unless an ExtremeAnalytics engine is configured and you are a member of an authorization group assigned the ExtremeCloud IQ Site Engine ExtremeAnalytics Read Access or Read/Write Access capability. The Read Access capability allows the ability to access the Analytics tab and view the ExtremeAnalytics reports. The Read/Write capability adds the ability to configure ExtremeAnalytics engines and NetFlow Collecting devices. It also adds the ability to create and modify fingerprints.

Viewing ExtremeAnalytics application data requires certain access requirements and prerequisites.

Introducing the Application Sensor Engine

As of ExtremeCloud IQ Site Engine, 21.09.10, Extreme Networks is introducing the new Application Analytics Engine Engine. This new Analytics engine combines the sensor and engine into one package, eliminating the need for additional hardware requirements. An Application Analytics Engine Installation Guide, which includes instructions for the installation and initial configuration of the Application Analytics Engine engine, has been added to ExtremeNetworks.com Support Documentation.

  NOTE: The ExtremeCloud IQ Site Engine, ExtremeControl, and ExtremeAnalytics Virtual Engine Installation Guide includes an overview of ExtremeCloud IQ Site Engine, ExtremeControl, and ExtremeAnalytics virtual engine deployment requirements and how to deploy a virtual engine on a VMware┬« and Hyper-V server.


The Dashboard tab displays an overview of application usage on your network through a series of graphs. It allows you to view network activity statistics based on client/server, application, industry, and response time for the specified ExtremeAnalytics engine. Many of the reports are links to more detailed pages.


The Browser tab lets you query information about recent network activity stored in the ExtremeCloud IQ Site Engine database and display results in various grid and chart report formats. Using the Browser, you can create custom queries based on selected options including a data target, statistic type, and other search criteria.

Application Flows

You can choose from the View drop-down list to show you several options in the table on the Application Flows tab, including the latest flows from the specified ExtremeAnalytics engine, the worst network and application response times, classified and unclassified flows, and flows during a specified time frame. The table presents bidirectional flow data (aggregate flows) or unidirectional flow data (base flows).


A fingerprint is a description of a pattern of network traffic which can be used to identify an application. The Fingerprints tab provides detailed information about fingerprints used by ExtremeAnalytics to identify application flows. You can choose to view in-use and customized fingerprint data.

Packet Captures

Use the Packet Captures tab to analyze the packets from the flows displayed on the Application Flows tab. The packet captures you create are presented in a table, which allows you to view details about the packet capture. Additionally, using this tab you can select a packet capture and view it in a packet analyzer.


The Configuration tab provides detailed information on the ExtremeAnalytics engines you configure. It also lets you add and enforce your engines, and access engine reports and diagnostics. You must be a member of an authorization group assigned the ExtremeCloud IQ Site Engine ExtremeAnalytics Read/Write Access capability to view the Configuration tab.


On the Reports tab, you can access a selection of reports that provide detailed information on application usage on your network, as well as network activity statistics based on application, user name, client, and site. For many of the reports, you can select an item in the report to view details or right-click an item to select from other focused reports.
