fully qualified name instead of IP addresses in NetFlow Data



Hello- In Netflow data, we see a lot of sources IP addresses. Is there any way that we could have a source name instead of IP addresses. This is a requirement for my management because it is time-consuming to get dig the name.

Hi there,

This should be actually done automatically, in case the core server is able to resolve those entries via the DNS of the operating system.
