Monitoring connections using Geolocation elements

Using Geolocation elements, you can define the physical locations of network elements, such as Hosts.

You can also see, for example, how much traffic the elements create.

This product includes GeoLite data created by MaxMind, available from http://⁠ The location information for public IP addresses is based on the GeoLite data created by MaxMind. The IP addresses in the Geolocation database are updated when the Management Server is upgraded.

You can also create Geolocations manually in the SMC. Geolocations based on internal IP addresses must be configured manually, as these addresses cannot be found in the Geolocation database based on public IP addresses. Creating a Geolocation manually for a public IP address overrides location data found for the address in the Geolocation database.

Geolocation maps are available in Reports, Statistics, and Overviews.
Note: You cannot use Geolocation elements to filter network traffic. Use Country elements for that purpose.
