policy cflowd-template collector—Configure the address of a cflowd collector (on vSmart controllers only). The Viptela software can export flows to a maximum of four collectors. Note that if one or more vManage NMSs are present in the overlay network, the collected flows are also sent to the NMSs. (The NMSs are not counted in the maximum number of collectors.) Configuring a cflowd collector is optional.
