I have sensors setup on a router to monitor a specific router interface using both SNMP and Netflow 5.
The SNMP polling is set for 1 minute intervals while the Netflow 5 Active Flow timeout is also set to 1 min.
On the Overview screen however, my SNMP sensor reports about 30Mbps while the Netflow sensors reports about 6Mbps.
Why such a discrepancy for the same interface ?
Also, I noticed that the SNMP Bandwidth summary is expressed as Inbound + Outbound....which can be confusing at times because I usually think of having for instance a 45Mbps T3 in both directions.
