Cisco Flexible NetFlow configuration

Exporting flows on some Cisco devices (for example, the 4500 series, with Supervisor 7) requires using Flexible NetFlow. This configuration example successfully exports flows from a Cisco 4507 with Supervisor 7:

flow record ipv4
! match ipv4 tos
match ipv4 protocol
match ipv4 source address
match ipv4 destination address
match transport source-port
match transport destination-port
match interface input
collect interface output
collect counter bytes
collect counter packets

flow exporter NetFlow-to-Orion
destination 10.10.10.10
source vlan254
transport udp 2055
export-protocol netflow-v5

flow monitor NetFlow-Monitor
description Original Netflow captures
record ipv4
exporter NetFlow-to-Orion
cache timeout inact 10
cache timeout act 5

vlan configuration 666
ip flow monitor NetFlow-Monitor input

The flow exporter destination and transport udp values must reflect the IP address and port (2055) of your SolarWinds NPM server.

SolarWinds NTA supports NetFlow version 5 and version 9. For more information about NetFlow version 5 or 9, see your Cisco router documentation or the Cisco website at www.cisco.com.
