AWS VPC Flow Logs

The AWS VPC Flow logs managed log source lets you ingest your AWS VPC Flow logs directly into Matano.

VPC Flow logs provide detailed information about network traffic in and out of your Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC).


Use the managed log source by specifying the managed.type property in your log_source as AWS_VPCFLOW.

name: "aws_vpcflow"



The AWS VPC Flow managed log source supports a single table containing VPC flow logs.



AWS VPC Flow logs must be enabled on your VPC. Matano currently only supports VPC Flow logs that are configured for delivery to an S3 bucket in the Text log lines format.

You can provide the S3 bucket you are using for delivery to Matano by using the ingest.s3_source configuration in your log_source.yml (Bring your own bucket).


AWS VPC Flow log data is normalized to ECS fields. Custom fields are normalized into the aws.vpcflow field. You can view the complete mapping to see the full schema.
