Hello- 1. Do I need a probe for NetFlow? 2. Is NetFlow analyzer a separate product or add on?

Hi there,

PRTG includes all features. You do not need a separate Remote Probe, just point your Flow-Sending devices to the PRTG host and create a NetFlow v9 sensor, or the v5 version.

For more information, take a look here.

Kind regards,
