Netflow bandwidth usage and link-aggregation

L2 Linker

We've added a netflow server profile to 4 sub-interfaces on ae1 that connects ISP. The netflow is then reported to Solarwinds where we have poll and collect netflow from these sub-interfaces. But we are also seeing notifications i Solarwinds that all the other sub-interfaces on ae1 (and an additional link-aggregation ae2) sends unmonitored netflow. Is this a misinterpretation of the netflow sent from our 4 sub-interfaces on ae1? Statistics: 500Mb netflow data (15 active timeout) / hour. We have about 30GB / hour and 600K sessions / hour traffic data for the 4 sub-interfaces.

You might want to take a look at the chrome extension Pan(w)achrome. It will give you all of these statistics and you don't have to setup Netflow. I believe that SolarWinds just doesn't really like how PAN does the AE interfaces, when I tried to set it up I was running into the same issue. 

Thanks for the recommendation. The Chrome extension looks nice but we use Solarwinds on our Infoscreen for display of bandwidth trends. So for presentation purposes this extensions doesn't fully cover our need.


Its good to get confirmation about similar problemer with netflow combined with link-aggregation though.
