flow-receive — Receive flow data with the NetFlow protocol.


flow-receive [-h] [-b big|little] [-C comment] [-d debug_level] [-o output_file] [-S
stat_interval] [-V pdu_version] [-z z_level] localip/remoteip/port


The flow-receive utility is used to receive flows in NetFlow format. When the remoteip is
configured only flows from that exporter will be processed, this is the most secure and
recommended configuration. When the localip is configured flow-receive will only process
flows sent to the localip IP address. If remoteip is 0 (not configured) flows from any
source IP address are accepted. Multiple non aggregated PDU versions may be accepted at
once to support Cisco's Catalyst 6500 NetFlow implementation which exports from both the
supervisor and MSFC with the same IP address and same port but different export versions.
In this case the exports will be stored in the format specified by the -V flag or
whichever export type is received first.


-b big|little
Byte order of output.

-C Comment
Add a comment.

-d debug_level
Enable debugging.

-h Display help.

-o file Write to file instead of the standard out.

-S stat_interval
When configured flow-receive will emit a timestamped message on stderr every
stat_interval minutes indicating counters such as the number of flows received,
packets processed, and lost flows.

-V pdu_version
Use pdu_version format output.

highest compression.
