Cisco Netflows

I am migrating my config from an old router to a new ASR 1001, and the following cmds are not accepted ...

ip flow-top-talkers - Configure netflow top talkers
 top 30
 sort-by bytes
 cache-timeout 150000
 match direction ingress

Does anyone know what ip flow-top-talkers was replaced with  ?

Thanks in advance

Yeah, what version cause I see not reason those commands shouldn't work.

from more research, it appears this cmd is used to view netflow data right on the device, rather than some downstream aggregator... I have a device collecting netflow and making it look nice for us, so do I even need this cmd running locally on my router ?

Oh, I though you wanted to look at it locally on your router. If you are exporting it to an external collector than no need for it.

Addiotionally, 15.1 should support those commands. Very strange.
