Stop monitoring NetFlow data from a device

If you do not want to monitor flow traffic on a device, you have the following options:

  • Configure the device to stop sending flow data on interfaces.
  • Keep the flow export as is, but configure the device not to send flows to any pollers.

You can also keep exporting flow data, but disable polling the data for the device. For more information, see Disable flow sources and CBQoS-enabled devices .
