|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.
