Help : Configure : Example 2

The following configuration file shows typical settings for a probe monitoring a router using NetFlow data exported from the router:

[probe]

host = probe.inmon.com                      ; change to result of "hostname" command
softwareKey = 3BC37BEF3C13E76F0003FFFFA4E46D998B7D7C3949879FCD475158E1
collectorHost = traffic.inmon.com           ; name of the sFlow collector

; some settings can have default values defined at the top level
; which are then overridden for specific agents below:

samplingRate = 1000
community = private                          ; Required to get interface counters.

        inputPort = 5555                     ; listen on UDP port 5555

        ; agent sending NetFlow data

        [agent]
        address = 10.0.0.254                 ; address of the router management agent
                                             ; Only NetFlow packets from this agent will be accepted.
              [netflow]			     ;
              netFlowInputASInfo = origin    ; Router has been set to export origin AS

; If the router is running BGP and full AS-Path data is required, then the probe
; can be configured to use BGP to peer (read-only) with the router and learn the
; AS-Path routing information.  Below is an example. The router must be configured
; to accept the peering connection from the probe server.
;        [agent]
;        address = 10.0.0.254                ; address of the router management agent
;        BGP_Peer = YES                      ; turn on BGP peering
;        BGP_LocalAS = 701                   ; your AS number here
;             [netflow]			     ;
;             netFlowInputASInfo = origin    ; Router has been set to export origin AS

Note: The router (10.0.0.254) must be configured to send NetFlow data to port 5555 on probe.inmon.com. Consult the documentation for your router for instructions on configuring NetFlow export.
