CBQoS and NetFlow aren’t peanut butter and jelly for you?

Level 18

We believe that CBQoS and NetFlow go together like peanut butter and jelly, but several of you commented that it was frustrating that you had to enable NetFlow on the interface to drill down to see CBQoS data.   Who are we to dictate how you like your CBQoS?   Well, the good news is with Orion NTA 3.6 you can have it any way you like it.

If you’ve upgraded to NTA 3.6, you’ll notice there are now two LAST RECEIVED columns in the NetFlow Sources resource:


As long as one of the LAST RECEIVED columns has a date/time stamp, then drill down is enabled and you can navigate to the respective interface details views.   You’ll notice that in the screen shot, Cur-3725 is not receiving NetFlow, but it is being polled for CBQoS data.

What if you don’t want to store all that CBQoS data in your database? Also new in 3.6, you can disable CBQoS data storage on specific interfaces.  Navigate to NTA Settings and click Manually Manage NetFlow Sources. You’ll see a dialog like this where you can check the boxes for both NetFlow and CBQoS.


We’re busy working on further improvements to CBQoS polling, so stay tuned and keep the great feedback coming!

About the Author
Standing side by side with teammates, jumping up and down, waiting to exit the tunnel as tens of thousands of fans rise to their feet and erupt with the thunderous roar of clapping in unison...this was one of my fondest memories from my time at the University of Texas. Unfortunately, I was just one of the clapping fans. At five foot eight and a buck fifty, it's probably better that way. I will spare you the long job history... Before I went to the dark side (of product marketing):  IBM RS6000 division  IBM Global Services Transitioning (the force was strong):  Tivoli Systems (assimilation into IBM) May as well have been Darth Vader: PentaSafe (startup acquired) -> NetIQ Identity Mgmt Division in Sun Microsystems SolarWinds - 2nd PM UnboundID SolarWinds (Yes, I couldn't stay away, so I'm back!) So, I've now been at SolarWinds for a long time (especially if you don't count my brief sabbatical) - long enough to have been involved in PM'ing virtually every Orion platform-based product in the portfolio. More than you ever wanted to know about me... I could eat sushi every day. I prefer Cabernets and Merlots over Pinots, despite the guidance from Sideways fanatics. I've intentionally avoided playing WoW for fear I would never stop. I disagree vehemently with my wife that watching college football all day Saturday and then NFL all day on Sunday is excessive.
