Netflow Sensor - change Filter possible?




can you tell me if it is possible to change the filter of a netflow sensor? It seems, that changes does not show up. Do I have to delete the sensor and recreate it? Or is there a way not to delete the whole history?

Hi there,

Thank you for your message.

Please see the following links for more information on the filtering/configuration options for Netflow sensors:

Changes should normally be active right after you've configured them. Please let me know in more detail about your problem.

Thank you!

Kind regards,
