How to Discover Nutanix AHV

Faddom can seamlessly integrate with your Nutanix AHV environment. To do this, you need to enable IPFIX via the Faddom UI. This guide will explain to you how to do this.

If you are using VMware on Nutanix, refer to our VMware guide.


Faddom utilises IPFIX to get the traffic from Nutanix AHV. This is supported from Prism Central 2023.1.0.1 and AOS is 6.5.2. 

If you want to enable IPFIX on older versions of Nutanix, see How to Enable IPFix on Nutanix 5.20LTS

Additionally, to receive information on the OS, MAC address and some other server properties, Nutanix Guest Tools (NGT) needs to be enabled on each machine. 



To enable IPFIX via the Faddom UI you need to provide user credentials with Prism Admin permissions. Once the discovery is complete and IPFIX is configured, you can use a read-only user.


How to Discover Nutanix

  1. Go to Settings > Data Sources > Nutanix

  2. Enter your Prism Central credentials

  3. Select DISCPVER

  4. At Step 2 select the hosts you wish to enable IPFIX for and select ENABLE IPFIX

Once this is complete you can begin creating maps with your Nutanix environment by following the guide New Application Maps
