Help needed on NetFlow Monitoring Tool

Hello to all, I need a s/w tool which will be capable of capturing and monitoring the netflow analysis of Cisco routers by utilizing 'net-flow' caching mechanism.

I know there are such tools, but I am not aware of the on going strategy of Cisco systems that whether the company supports and/or integrates this kind of monitoring tool into CiscoWorks2K.

Are there any free network monitoring tools on the market for the net-flow analysis?

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks,

Onur

Onur,

Netflow Collector or Netflow Collection Engine would be the Cisco application for this function. Here is a URL for this.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/partner/products/sw/netmgtsw/ps1964/prod_installation_guide09186a0080115482.html

There are also other 3rd party/outside applications that will take and parse this netflow exported information.

Hope this helps,

Don, thank you for the reply. I have checked the page, I understand what should be done to monitor net-flow traffic. However, I am still unclear about NetFlow Collection Engine of Cisco.

Is it a concrete device, s/w application or both.

Does Cisco support the tool and sell it now?
