How can I 'Drill into' NetFlow data?

We have configured an IPFIX sensor on our Probe device (PRTG Network Monitor 16.1.22.2391 ) and are pointing all of our Netflow data at this probe, from several switches and Virtual Centers.

We can see the Top Talkers and the Live Data but cant really drill into the detail that we are looking for, not sure if this is due to the way we have configured things or if PRTG doesn't display the information that we are looking for.

When we look at TopTalkers we can see that a device talks with others devices, we want to be able to drill into this connection and see which devices, volumes of data ands protocols etc. From there then drill into the next piece that shows something interesting etc.

Not sure if this sis doable or not, hopefully the question makes sense though.

Dear Peter

The flow sensors of PRTG don't replace Wireshark, instead they provide you bandwidth information for pre-defined channels. You can setup your own traffic channels and toplists. However you cannot dig deep into the flows unless you enable the "Log Stream Data to Disk" option which generates CSV files containing the flows which you can use to check manually.

The stream logging should not be turned on for long, because those logs can fill the free harddisk space very fast.
