In order to receive flow data from your Cisco 6500 in SolarWinds NTA, you must configure it to export NetFlow data. This article includes an example config to build your own config specific to your environment.

  • All NTA versions



Cisco 6509 Native IOS Global Configuration:


mls ip multicast flow-stat-timer 9
mls aging long 64


mls aging normal 32
