Configuring NetFlow monitoring

To configure NetFlow monitoring, you first configure NetFlow-enabled devices to forward flows to the NAM Probe, configure the NAM Probe to set a number of global parameters for all flow sources, observe the detected flow sources, and adjust the settings for specific flow sources with problems.

Configuring remote NetFlow-enabled devices to send flows to the NAM Probe.

Refer to appropriate documentation of your NetFlow-enabled devices for instructions on how to perform the configuration. For more information, see Configuring remote NetFlow - enabled devices.

Configuring general NetFlow settings on the NAM Probe.

For more information, see Flow collector - general.
