Aside

i searched the Net a lot and didn’t find any document on how to configure it , Yes solarwinds site advise you to enable certain fields but they dont provide an example .

lets make it simple , note all commands in configuration terminal

1. you need to define a record filter as below:

 flow record Orion

 match ipv4 protocol

 match ipv4 source address

 match ipv4 destination address

 match transport source-port

 match transport destination-port

 match interface input

 match interface output

 collect counter bytes

 collect counter packets

2.Define Exporter , where you want to send the Net Flow Data

flow exporter Orion_Exporter

description Export_To_Orion

destination 10.1.1.1 ( your netflow server ip )

source Loopback0 ( you need to choose your source )

transport udp 2055 ( define the port of netflow listener )

3.Create the Flow Monitor ( the main template which will include the exporter and record filter )

flow monitor Solarwinds

record Orion

exporter Orion_Exporter

4.apply the template to the interface you want to include in netflow , example the loop back

interface loopback 0

ip flow monitor Solarwinds input ( you can choose whether input or output or both )

by this it should  be working , troubleshooting is different story if needed it can be explained later
