You probably have NetFlow enabled on your network devices, but the question is, are you truly taking advantage of what it offers? From working in technical support, I noticed, although NetFlow technology is evolving rapidly, when it comes to understanding how the technology works and how much can be accomplish with it, many users are staying behind. Today I want to give you a few tips.
Tip 1: In NetFlow analysis, more flows sent to the collector is good. Keep in mind that some NetFlow analysis softwares handle more flow packets than others.
Tip 2: If you are only interested in monitoring specific interfaces on your network device, it is best to enable NetFlow v9.
Tip 3: Did you know that you can configure nProbe to Export URLs and Latency via NetFlow.
