Hello Everyone,

I trying to configure netflow feature in my cisco 4507, using ntop for capture the packets.

But, the switch sends all traffic passed, i need so four ports to capture, and not all traffic.

Its possible configuring so four ports to send the netflow traffic? the ports are L3 mode.

4507 Conf :

ip route-cache flow
ip flow ingress
ip flow-export version 5
ip flow-export destination x.x.x.x  9996

Tks a lot.

Hello Rafael,

you should have provided additional information:

a show module to see what type of supervisor you have

a show ver | inc image

to see what IOS image is running

However, the answer is negative:

>> Enabling NetFlow on a per interface basis is not supported on a Catalyst 4500 switch.


even in 12.2(54)SG

to be noted I see a new IOS XE 3.1.0 SG for C4500 but this is really new

you need to implement a filter on the netflow collector using the SNMP ifindex of the desired interfaces

you should be able to see SNMP ifindex by using

show snmp mib ifmib ifindex

Hope to help
