The requirements sound better suited to Netflow and applications that can be Netflow collectors.

ANA is more about service provider device provisioning and fault monitoring.

Thank you, If I have Netflow already it's possible to integrate Netflow with ANA?

It's conceivable. ANA is much like a swiss-army knife that's enabling you to take advantage of multiple data sources and instrumentation to build a solution that's unique and custom to your environment. With that in mind, you should gain efficiencies in managing your network because it maps to your requirements.

I think you should reach out to your sales team and ask for them to engage the NMTG ANA Overlay Sales Team so they can more fully map your requirements to true capabilities.

I am giving you an answer without having much background on your company and requirements. It's like saying "Yes I can build a robot" and all you have is a pile of Legos.
