Make sure you have the template timeout to 1 minute. The command for setting flow timeout is "flow-export template timeout-rate".And maybe you could refer here:

As for errors from ifindex 65535 - I have seen this when exporting NSEL from Cisco ASA. that is a dummy interface and has no flow information.

The ASA uses a proprietary version of NetFlow v9 called "NSEL", or NetFlow Security Event Logging.

I have never set this up with Solarwinds NTA, but I found this document that might help you:

SolarWinds Knowledge Base :: Configuring Cisco ASA devices for use with Orion NTA

Thanks jswan,, checking it...

more replys will be welcome
