I have a Cisco Pix 506E (version 6.3(4) that I want to configure for netflow.  Is is possible to configure netflow on a cisco pix?  If so, I'm hoping someone can show me the configurations to do this.  Thanks.

No. netflow is a new feature in version 8.x, which is not compatible with pix 506e.

I would consider an upgrade to a ASA 5505 or higher.

Thanks.  I am having slowness on my network the past few days and I'm trying to find out what kind of traffic is causing the slowness.  I have Solarwinds Network Permormance Montior that collects netflow data.  Since I can't use netflow, any ideas of what else I could use?  Thanks.

Can you some how plug in wireshark to look at the network traffic?  If not, try an nprobe as that will export NetFlow.  I recommend Scrutinizer for NetFlow reporting.
