Does anyone have experience setting up Cisco Netflow cards to capture data flow to export to an external workstation?
I need help understanding what's the best cache settings/overall config to ensure least amount of bandwidth used exporting from netflow card to external workstation.
I also don't want to add a ton of extra utilization on my switches.
I've got a redundant Catalyst 4507R, WS-X4515 Supervisor Engine's both with Netflow cards installed.
Basically right now I've only got the cards installed.
The Cisco guides aren't clear if the cache settings are important for exporting the data to a external workstation for analyzing, or what best practices/recommended settings to use.
The configuration doesn't look to complicated I just want to make sure I don't add a ton of extra load on the switch while capturing data or while exporting it.
If anyone has implemented Netflow and has some best practices/recommended settings that you can share I'd greatly appreciate it.
