-AgeOffFilter + moving data to a different table
Slater, David M. 2013-09-04, 17:11
I was wondering if it was possible (and a good idea) to modify an AgeOffFilter so that when a record is aged off, it gets sent to a different table.
Basically, I am storing netflow data and aggregating that information (through a Combiner) into a single entry. Updates to the aggregated record come regularly when the flow is active, but when the no updates have come in a certain amount of time (e.g. 30 seconds), I assume that the flow is done and want to migrate that to a different table (with further indexing). It is important that I migrate it from the current table so that the combiner doesn't combine two different flows (separated sufficiently in time) with the same Key (ips, ports, and protocol).
Is there a way to do this with AgeOffFilters? Would I need an external program running that would periodically scan the table with an ageofffilter and then re-ingest those netflows into a new table?
