We have Orion NPM+NTA for monitoring our data center customers. Our idea is to create IP Address Group to every customer and use SDK for reporting that customer's utilization.
There are around 10 routers exporting NetFlow to Orion NTA. There are cases where a customer is accessing over two or more routers. In those cases all routers are exporting NetFlow data pertaining to same customer which results in multiplication of actual customer traffic.
Suppose if the customer is accessing between two sites where both the sites are exporting their NetFlow/IPFIX to Orion NTA then NTA considers both the routers flow into the customer IP Addrss Group which actually multiplies the actual value by 2 (since 2 routers are seeing the same IP address and exporting the flows).
We would like to know while we define IP Address Group in Orion NTA itself, any way where the IP Address Group statistics should be collected only from one router not from all router?
thanks in advance,
When you select the view type in Flow Navigator, use a "Detail" report instead of a summary report. There you can choose either a specific node or a node and specific interface with which to restrict the report. Once you select the node or the interface, add your IP Address Group restriction on top of that.
