    Netflow Historic data

    itnetworkteam

      Hi, we've been asked to store Netflow data for at least 90 days but I'm concerned that this will have a detrimental effect on our NPM.

      Can you answer a couple of questions?

      1: Is it feasible to store Netflow data for 90 days? (we currently store data for 14days).

      2: Will this slow down Orion NPM performance?

      3: Can the Netflow data be stored on a separate server and DB to that of NPM?

      Thanks,

          Yes, but performance depends on how much NetFlow data you have. How large in NetPerfMon now? How many NetFlow sources do you have?

          It could. Check out these recommendations for minimizing impact.

          No. This is not possible today.
