We are trying to implement a netflow collector for multiple datacentres. The scenario exists where 2 of the datacentres might have connectivity issues and therefore sending of netflow packets to the central server would fail.

My question is does anyone know if the ASA devices queue failed netflow packets for retry at a later point?

Netflow data is sent with UDP and the application does not provide for acknowledgements.  So it's sent once with no retransmission.
