In continuation to our introduction blog on HighPerf reporting engine, this one discuss about how to install the HighPerf reporting engine and integrate it with NetFlow Analyzer.

This HighPerf reporting engine comes as a add-on package to NetFlow Analyzer. It can be installed on the same machine where NetFlow Analyzer is installed or on a remote server.

HighPerf Reporting Engine and NetFlow Anlayzer on the same server:

If you prefer to install the HighPerf Add On on the same server where you are going deploy NetFlow Analyzer, You can download the installable for Windows which has HighPerf add-on from here and Linux from here.
