Once you’ve configured the Cisco ASA for NetFlow exports I would recommend watching Mike’s video on NetFlow From the ASA which goes over how NetFlow from the ASA is different than traditional NetFlow.  Also, make sure you’re running the Cisco ASA’s software version 8.2(2) or later as an interface bug was found in prior releases.
