Netflow problem with Prime Infrastructure

Hi,

I am using Prime Infrastructure 1.2 eval version.(100 devices and 150 interfaces limit)

I was hoping to send netflow data from Nexus 7010 and 3750X to PI.

So I add them manually and set up configuration for netflow.

After that, I can't see anything about netflow in [Operate]->[Performance]->[Service Assurance]

It shows no data available.

I look up in the user guide to figure out the problem.

Then I use [Configuration Templates] to deploy netflow config again.

The result is the same.

Can anyone with experience using netflow function in PI 1.2 could tell me where did I miss?

Thanks in advanced.

Hi Mason Tu,

Can you check any access list blocking your switches from sending data to PI

HTH ,

Pandian.

Hi Pandian,

Thanks for your reply, but we don't have any access-list configuration on the switch.

And this is a test lab , there is no firewall as well.

I try to ping from switch to PI, it's fine.

Dear Mason,

Did you ever find a solution for this problem?
Please advise,

Moustafa

Hi Moustafa,

I don't have any solution for this problem.

Do you meet the same problem?

Hi Moustafa
I have the same problem. Is your prime server connected to a Nexus switchport?
May be My problem startes when I moved the prime server from a 3560x to a Nexus. It is a wild gues, but I will try moving it back.

Any resolutions?

Same problem no netflow data.  Netflow data is being exported fine to Solarwinds and sh ip flow export shows many flows being exported.

Check the port assignments. We had an issue with this during Eval and it was due to ports.

Agree with Christopher, check the destination port setting.

Another concern point is the version of 3750X module has to be compatible with 3750X itself.

If the version of these two are mismatch, no netflow can be exported.

The port is 9991 for Prime right?  Here is my 6509 netflow config which works for other reporting software.  I've just added my prime vm appliance IP with port 9991.  I see a few netflows in data sources but no TX or RX data for the interface ( see attached pics ).

Mason,

Here are a working Netflow configuration for Nexus 7K switch:

!Command: show running-config netflow

version 6.1(3)

flow timeout active 120

flow timeout inactive 32

flow timeout fast 32 threshold 100

flow timeout session

flow timeout aggressive threshold 75

  transport udp 9991

  source Vlan998

  version 9

  match transport source-port

  match transport destination-port

  collect routing forwarding-status

  collect transport tcp flags

  collect counter bytes

  collect counter packets

  collect timestamp sys-uptime last

flow monitor MON1_input

  record netflow ipv4 original-input

  exporter EXP1

flow monitor MON1_output

  record netflow ipv4 original-output

  ip flow monitor MON1_input input 

  ip flow monitor MON1_output output 

interface Ethernet4/8

  ip flow monitor MON1_input input 

  ip flow monitor MON1_output output

I hope this can help you.

Which cards and fabric are you using? What version of NX-OS are you using? You may be running into an issue with what the Nexus will actually support with regards to Netflow.

I don't have a Nexus, I have Catalyst 6509 and 3750 mostly. 

My reply was directed to the original poster... who does have a Nexus.  If you have a separate issue with a separate product, it might be best to start your own thread?
