Is there a solution for NetFlow display from an ASA 5510 in PRTG version



I found reference to this in the FAQ,but for a much earlier version. We are using version of PRTG. Our ASA 5510 is setup to send NetFlow data to our server, and in fact we do get the "top talkers" and such. But little to no data is displayed in the graphs. Basically all we see is data for "Total" and "Other".

Do you have some suggestions or ideas on how to get more meaningful information from this type of system?

In order to see traffic divided into different types, please enable the different channels in your NetFlow sensor's settings by setting them to Yes or Detail. All other traffic will always be accounted to the Other channel.

For detailed information, please see manual section NetFlow V5 Sensor.
