Netflow on Nortel 8300?




I'm using version 6.2 with SNMP and Nortel 8300 devices. That works great.

Is it possible to see more than just the bandwidth? I'd like to use Netflow but I don't know how to set it up.

Would be great if somebody could help me.

you would need a netflow collector license for PRTG6

Netflow collectors are not free, but can be bought as an add on.

I have one of these, but I won't get any data. Could you explain how to set that up correctly, please?

is your Nortel sending Netflow 5 data or is it IPFIX?

PRTG6 can only handle Netflow version 5
