How to use this NetFlow Configurator?
NetFlow Configurator feature in NetFlow Analyzer uses Web Service Management Agent(WSMA) to import data from the router. To enable WSMA in your on the initiator router, please do the follow these steps :
cisco2081a2(config)#ip http server
cisco2081a2(config)#ip http authentication local
Enabling Service listener:
cisco2081a2(config)#wsma profile listener mylistener
cisco2081a2(config-wsma-listen)#transport http path /wsma

Configuring Flexible NetFlow Export :-
Configuring a traditional NetFlow is a simple process which you can complete it in few click using NetFlow Configurator and self explanatory. Flexible NetFlow configuration is somewhat different from traditional NetFlow export as it needs multiple entities like:
- Flow Exporter
- Flow Record
- Flow Monitor
- Attaching the monitor to interface.
The screen shots shows the sequence of creating a Flexible NetFlow in NetFlow Configurator.
Once the device is configured, you can click on Sync option available at the top right corner and see the applied configuration by clicking on Existing configurations.
We are sure this value added feature in NetFlow Analyzer will definitely going to benefit to all those using NetFlow Analyzer and saves time spend on logging to each router for NetFlow configuration.
