windows tools to view netflow

Unanswered Question
Sep 21st, 2010

Hi All,

          We have a tool that would pull the netflow logs and display the output in a text file, is there a gui tool that can be used to view the output from the text file, the tool should also be able to do sorting.....any sugesstions would be helpful

Thanks

I have this problem too.

I know this sounds a bit obvious but if it is a text file why not just import it into Microsoft Excel and do the sorting in there. Alternatively if you had it you could use something like Microsoft access database which would allow you to do more complex queries.

To be honest if it's just sorting it would be fairly trivial to write your own GUI with something like TCL/TK, and Microsoft Office is not my favourite software, but why reinvent the wheel when there are already tools to do the job ?

SolarWinds distribute a free netflow viewer - not sure how well it works because I've run into some subtle incompatibility with the Nexus 7K I want to view the netflow off which I hadn't had time to resolve yet, but it's definitely there.

http;//www.solarwinds.com/downloads - look for "Free realtime Netflow Analyzer".

Cheers
