Digi intelliFlow — a key feature of Digi Remote Manager® — is a data usage monitor and network traffic visualization tool that provides actionable insights into your network’s application data, focusing on the top 10 users or top 10 destinations. This easy-to-understand representation of network activity enables you to update settings on your Digi devices or tailor your network to your site’s data needs. intelliFlow gives you recent data and a historical reference to keep your networks running smoothly.
Combined with Digi Remote Manager, intelliFlow provides a powerful tool to monitor data usage and combat excessive use and overage charges. While Digi Remote Manager tracks hundreds of data stream metrics from each device over time, it primarily focuses on the health and status of the Digi device. Digi intelliFlow goes further — drilling down on the traffic going through the Digi device. intelliFlow provides deeper insights on the traffic, identifying the “top-talkers” so you can easily spot outliers or data-usage trends over time.
Here's a look at the Digi intelliFlow interface, followed by a description of the functionality.

The combination of Digi Remote Manager and intelliFlow lets system administrators, technical support professionals, and network administrators view devices connected to the network and monitor data usage, review trends and spikes, and set custom alarms that send notifications when a device approaches or exceeds monthly data limits. Digi Remote Manager can also aggregate individual site or device data to present usage analytics for groups of devices for further insights into network usage.
With intelliFlow, you can easily identify your top 10 sources of data consumption at each site — or over your entire fleet of sites. You also see what type of data those top talkers are generating and where that traffic goes. This gives network admins the insights they need to combat excessive data usage on the network and continue to monitor for additional spikes or trends over time. Digi intelliFlow is included with each Digi Remote Manager premier license at no additional cost, and it’s available on all Digi routers running the DAL operating system.
The intelliFlow data usage monitor is ideal for retail stores, public Wi-Fi networks, transportation networks, and remote industrial sites that can be susceptible to rogue devices being connected to their network. You can also use intelliFlow on corporate equipment to prevent abuse or unintended/unacceptable network usage. Digi intelliFlow provides the ability to identify those rogue devices along with what systems they’re communicating with. You can quickly spot unexpected device activity on the network, mitigate it, and continue to monitor for additional trends over time.
