View Cflowd Information

Cflowd monitors traffic flowing through vEdge routers in the overlay network and exports flow information to a collector, where it can be processed by an IPFIX analyzer. For a traffic flow, cflowd periodically sends template reports to flow collector. These reports contain information about the flow and data extracted from the IP headers of the packets in the flow.

To configure cflowd on a vEdge router, you use centralized data policy to define a cflowd template, which specifies the location of a cflowd collector and timers that control flow collection.

To view cflowd flow information for a vEdge router:
