Unanswered Question
Feb 14th, 2008


I am looking for solution to analyze, monitor, troubleshooting and find out issues at data traffic flow like loss connection, packet retransmission on Cisco Switch 6500 at LAN. I have already seen suggestion to enable Netflow feature with a NetFlow Collector using software from many companies (e.g FlukeNetworks, ManageEngine, Plixer International and SolarisWinds) but it only looks like useful for WAN environment.

Can I use Netflow feature for LAN environment?

Can anyone give a suggestion?

Thanks in advance.


I have this problem too.

Hi Gaurav,

I have not deployed this solution yet but you can easily find this configuration (CATOS/CATIOS platform) on Cisco WebSite. I have decided to deploy NetFlow and SNMP RMON MIB for monitoring all IP-based traffic on Switch interfaces at LAN and WAN environment.
