Using Paessler Netflow Tester to Debug NetFlow Installations

Netflow Tester is a small program from Paessler that simply dumps the data of all Netflow packets that a computer receives from a Cisco router. This can be useful when debugging bandwidth monitoring configurations based on Cisco's Netflow protocol.

Please see NetFlow Tester's Homepage for more information and for a download link: NetFlow Tester
