Support for IPFIX




Will there be support for IPFIX? I see all sorts of Netflow sensors availabilities, but none for IPFIX.

Although there are considerations to include IPFIX in PRTG, I'm afraid there are no near-future plans to this extent. In this sense, we would be hard-pressed to let you know when such a functionality will be available.

What can of probe can be use to convert IPFIX (v10) to NetFlow v9 ?

There is pmacc or nprobe.

What do you recommend ?

Seeing as we have no actual experience with these tools (we're guessing you mean "pmacct"), I'm afraid we cannot really say which one would be the better option - or if the converted data will be readily usable with PRTG. Perhaps someone else has tried or, if you try yourself, you could let us know which is easier / more compatible to use with PRTG.
