Netflow Sampling Rate



Question on the netflow sampling rate, we have our nexxus core switch doing netflow off an interface. The sampling rate configured in the switch is 1 to 100.

So when I set up the netflow receiver in PRTG I say yes its a sampled netflow, but what do I put in there for the value, since it 1% of the traffic do I put on in there 1 or since netflow is sampled at 1 to N, do I put N in there for the value, 100 in my case.


cisco configuration netflow-v9

Dear Kube

Please enter 100 for the 1/100 (1%) sampling rate.
