How to Netflow 5 with ESXi 5/5.1



I didn´t find any leads on this so i try to configure NFv5 in IPCheck to monitor the VCenter solution.

So far it doesn´t work but mostly because i didn´t find any documents or how to.

Can someone give a document or point me to something that describes the procedure to monitor mi VCenter solution with NFv5?

I have V13.2.3.2064 of PRTG network Monitor, licensed to 500 sensors

Thanks in advance

First you would need to set up vSphere to send the Netflow data to PRTG which you can see how to do here.

Once that is set up, you would create the Netflow sensor on the device that the flows are being sent to and configure the sensor with the same settings that you used in vSphere. You can read more about the Netflow v5 sensor here.
