    Looking to see if Netflow compares to Wireshark

      I am new to the Cisco environment and using sniffers.  I am used to installing Wireshark on my PC and monitoring traffic for Instant Messaging.  My new job I have to sniff traffic between one server to another server or PC.  I currently setup port mirroring on a switch, plug in my PC into a port on the switch and run Wireshark.  That is fine if I am at work and I want to carry my PC around but I now I am getting request for remote sites and sniffing their traffic.  Can Netflow allow me to sniff one port on a switch and only log traffic from one ip address?  Also can Netflow sniff Virtual servers?
