Netflow Generator Timestamp Problem



Hi. Im using Netflow generator but unfortunally the timestamp associated with data is related to 1993.

NetFlow v5, 1362849.671 uptime, 754928903.1895435125, #3910754769, 217403 recs

As you can see, the timestamp is 754928903.1895435125

that is: GMT: Friday 3 December 1993 14:28:23.189

Thanks for reaching out to us.

Have you tried using the NetFlow tester to see if this data is coming directly in this format from the device itself? https://www.paessler.com/tools/netflowtester
