Summarization of multiple Netflow 9 sensors into one



I´m working with PRTG 13. I have some core switches, each with a Netflow 9 sensor. Now I need to "summarized" both sensors into one with aggregated values. I mean that as both switches forms part of one "same core", I need to add values from 1st. sensor to 2nd sensor and represent it in a 3rd. new NetFlow sensor. Could this be possible?

You might be able to do this with the sensor factory sensor albeit we have had issues with this and I cannot guarantee that this will work, it all depends on what the active flow timeout is for this sensor and what you set the scanning interval to on the sensor factory sensor.

If this does not work, then you may want to try using the SNMP traffic sensors and aggregating that data with a sensor factory sensor instead although this will not be able to break down the traffic like Netflow.
