Overview

Distributed Virtual Switches (VMWare ESX-Server) do not support SNMP. This article describes how to rename NetFlow nodes created for flows delivered by traffic in distributed virtual switches by naming a new interface created from the NetFlow Last 25 Traffic Analyzer Events. 

Environment

  • All UDT versions
  • Netflow with Distributed Virtual Switches

Steps

  1. On the NetFlow Last 25 Traffic Analyzer Events, click on the event that says traffic received from an interface that does not support SNMP. For example: NetFlow Receiver Service [Orion Server] is receiving flow data from unmanaged interface '#103' on "Device Name" and it does not support SNMP.
  2. Name the interface.
  3. On the Orion Web Console, go to Settings > Manage Nodes.
  4. Expand the node where the interface is located.
  5. Edit and rename the interface.
  6. Add the bandwidth information.
  7. Click Save
