Configuration example:


flow-export destination inside 2055 
flow-export template timeout-rate 1 
flow-export delay flow-create 60 
access-list netflow-export extended permit ip any any 
class-map netflow-export-class 
match access-list netflow-export 
policy-map global_policy 
class netflow-export-class 
flow-export event-type all destination 
service-policy global_policy global
