What is NetFlow Telemetry for Network Traffic Monitoring?  It’s a type of automated measurement that provides visibility into your network that is provided by NetFlow, sFlow, or IPFIX.

Have you ever heard of Cisco Smart Logging Telemetry?  This is a type of NetFlow that captures packets when a threat is detected and automatically sends the frames off in NetFlow datagrams.

Ask yourself, how much telemetry are you looking for in a great NetFlow tool?
