Netflow trafic different compare snmp trafic



I'm using both SNMP trafic sensor to monitor bandwidth usage on cisco router interface and also use Netflow sensor to have more detail view on what type of data running through it. but why i'm reading different graph result ? for example, when snmp show that bandwidth usage were rising, but at the same time netflow total bandwidth show the opposite. why there is different between bandwidth usage show by netflow sensor compare with snmp sensor ?

bandwidthsensor netflow-sensor snmp
