Is the size of Netflow data limited ?



Your Vote:




I am working with Netflow sensor V9 to monitor a bandwith used by my CISCO Switch. I want know if the size of Netflow data is limited. In other words, is Netflow data automatically deleted after a certain time or if it exceeds a certain size?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Mica,

PRTG collects the data and then accumulates the data for the toplists (by defalult toplists are configured to periods of 15 minutes). After that it will dispose the collected flowdata.
