SummaryWhen Traffic is classified as Youtube, no other information is given on the real time monitor unlike HTTP which can give URL information.
OverviewThe real time monitor of Exinda appliances shows conversations, including the source, destination IP and applications that are being used. These applications are based on the defined applications in the Exinda. While some HTTP and some HTTPS traffic can show snippets of the URL domains that are being accessed, other application classifications, including Youtube, do not show any more information.
For Youtube specifically, detailed information is difficult to come by. While the application definition examines the traffic patterns in order to correctly classify Youtube traffic as Youtube, the metadata of the video (name, uploader, length, rating, etc) are all embedded on the page and not read in detail by the Exinda. Furthermore, by default, Youtube forces connection over HTTPS, meaning that unless an SSL certificate for Youtube is obtained and installed on the Exinda, it would be impossible to read that data, were the ability there.
A feature request has been submitted to attempt to get some Youtube URL details into the system to be monitored.
