Can I use a NAM like a netflow collector?

Hi

I know we can send netflow information to a NAM card from the Catalyst it is installed. Then we can analyse the infrmation it collect using, for example, nGenius.

I need to know if is it possible to send netflow information to a NAM card from one external router. And if it is possible which is the UDP port it use to listen for the netflow ?

Thanks

Q) Is it possible to send netflow information from an external router to a NAM card?

A) It's not currently supported, only from the local switch the NAM is in right now.

Hello Octavio,

you can find some Q&A at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/partner/products/hw/switches/ps708/products_qanda_item09186a00800a2c88.shtml.

If I remeber well the default port is 2055, but you can change the export port wirh the ip flow-export command.

I hope this help you.

Andrea.

Hi Andrea

I know that it is possible to configure a port to export netflow information. But do you know which one use the NAM card if you send it netflow information from an external router?

Re: Can I use a NAM like a netflow collector?

Hi

I have seen that document. But that is not my question.

The document tell us how can we export netflow information to a netflow collector from a Catalyst. It is said too we can send this netflow information to the NAM installed in this Catalyst.

But my question is: is it possible to send netflow information from an external router to a NAM card? and, if it is posible, what port the NAM card use to listen for netflow?

Thanks

There is no such Q/A doc available for this. I just replied in a Q/A format for clarification purpose only.
