NetFlow is a network protocol that was originally developed by Cisco to analyze network traffic. It analyzes packets that are sent over the network and groups them into “flows” which are more or less based on the protocol, access points, source and destination IP addresses, and ports.
Similar to the NetFlow protocol we discussed in the previous post, sFlow is also a method to get information on the traffic between servers without getting the full traffic information. Like NetFlow, sFlow also supports using sampling to limit collection to 1 out of every X packets.
