What version of ASA software supports Netflow for traffic analyzing?

What version of ASA software supports Netflow for traffic analyzing. The version of software we are running on the PIX is 7.2.4. Bottom line, I need to know if it’s able to send any “netflow” data to an analyzer. I have not found anything that states it supports it.

Any help or guidance is appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi,

Till now only Cisco ASA 5580 Series uniquely addresses the challenge of high-performance security event handling through advancements in Cisco's NetFlow v9 technology.

ASA 8.2.1 and above can support netflow. If you have a PIX you can't do it.

The code looks like this:

flow-export destination INSIDE 172.16.200.101 9996

policy-map global_policy
  class class-default
   flow-export event-type all destination 172.16.200.101

Also, here is the guide for setting it  up

yup, Version 8.2.1 gets you the NetFlow.

Here is how you configure it:

Here are some limitations you want to be aware of.
