SDN 101: An Introduction to Software Defined Networking
Discover the advantages of SDN.
SDN has quickly become one of the hottest trends in IT. But not all SDN solutions offer real software-defined functionality. As more enterprises consider SDN, they want to know, “What is SDN? And what are the real benefits?” If you're ready to explore the advantages of SDN, and want to know how it should be implemented within your enterprise, start by reading our introductory white paper.

well this has nothing at all to do with vlans, you need to actually explain your network architecture. generally that too shouldn't matter hugely if you only have one internet connection with all traffic routing towards it. that's just a generic squid install.
I want to filter the traffic on vLAn basis, example i may add restriction to vlan 10 and I may not add restriction to vlan 20 I may just need to monitor the incoming and outgoing traffic at vlan 30 without restricting anything etc.
By the way can we monitor all the traffic just with iptables?
no, as above this isn't about vlans. you can't filter on "vlan 20" as this means nothing to a server. instead you'd filter on ip subnet, 192.168.1.0/24 etc...
So in this case it would mean that all the traffic thats coming/going to 192.168.1.0/24 would be monitored, well in that case would squid show me the source/destination IP in logs that of a vlan network as in vlan 20 or would it show me the 192.168.1.0/24 subnet Ip ?
Becasue it doesn't make lot of sense to monitor 192.168.1.0/24 subnet if I don't come to know which ip is accessing what url whether it be from any network.
