Cisco Nexus 7000 NetFlow Support

At the last Cisco Networkers ‘CiscoLive’ show I had a chance to speak with Yuan-Chi (Marty) the NetFlow product manager for the Nexus 7000. I like having my picture taken with these guys. heh heh:


As part of our Cisco Technology Partner status, we get to work with key NetFlow players at Cisco to make sure we support cutting edge technologies such as Flexible NetFlow on the latest Cisco hardware.  Check out the Nexus 7000. Cisco has a nice online video about this monster.


Basically, if this hardware kicks out Flexible NetFlow, Scrutinizer should be able to deliver juicy details such as NBAR, VLAN IDs, MAC addresses, etc.

I can’t wait.

Michael is one of the Co-founders and the former product manager for Scrutinizer. He enjoys many outdoor winter sports and often takes videos when he is snowmobiling, ice fishing or sledding with his kids. Cold weather and lots of snow make the best winters as far as he is concerned. Prior to starting Somix and Plixer, Mike worked in technical support at Cabletron Systems, acquired his Novell CNE and then moved to the training department for a few years. While in training he finished his Masters in Computer Information Systems from Southern New Hampshire University and then left technical training to pursue a new skill set in Professional Services. In 1998 he left the 'Tron' to start Somix which later became Plixer.
