Nexus 5596UP Netflow Solutions

Nick C.

I am looking for a solution to monitor east/west traffic in our data center. Currently we have 2 Nexus 5596 which do not support netflow.  Is there a recommended solution or network sensor that I could add onto the 5k and span the traffic? We have a netflow application (solarwinds) so I'm trying to avoid getting a full blown netflow appliance, just need a way to turn span traffic into netflow data and push to our existing netflow analyzer.

Thank you!

Hi Nick,

Switch does not support SPAN to NetFlow conversion, and there is not way to do it on the switch. What I would suggest you, is to take a look at the SW that can do this on a windows/linux server. On of the topics that covers this subject is here: https://communities.cisco.com/message/263677

Hope this helps.
