We have some Meraki MX64 appliances in our network and wanted to monitor Netflow from these devices. However, we encountered some errors with regards to the V9 template, and found out the reason in the Meraki documentation below:
"SolarWinds NTA ignores Netflow packets that do not contain either an SNMP ingress or egress interface index. The MX and Z1 do not support exporting an SNMP ingress or egress interface index via NetFlow."
Is there currently a workaround for this? Is this being considered on the road map for NTA or are we on Meraki's mercy?
Thanks in advance.
Yea, I like Meraki, but have read elsewhere that their Netflow implementation is a bit sloppy. This kind of re-enforces that a bit in my mind. If they don't want to fully support the egress and ingress interface portion of netflow, they could have at least allowed it to export a "default" value.
Here is an article by Plixer on some problems with Meraki's implementation... Doesn't help in this case, but interesting reading.
