Flowview not display data

#1 Post by minipop4747 » Sun Dec 17, 2017 10:12 pm

I have install flowview v2.1 plugin on Cacti v1.1.19 and also install flow-capture (flow-tools) on cacti server. In my networking devices I have enable netflow traffic and configure to send to cacti server.


Cacti server receiving all netflow traffic.


But netflow data did not display in cacti flowview and data are not saving to MariaDB on cacti server.



So How can I fix this issue ?

I can't really answer for the plugin itself as I don't use it but have you followed all the steps in the README?
https://github.com/Cacti/plugin_flowvie ... /README.md
Once you have done all of this, goto Console->Settings->Misc and setup this information in the FlowView section.

Next you have to setup your Cacti server as a FlowView sink from your various sources. Then, from FlowView -> Listeners, you must add the various listeners for all your flow-capture sources.

Dear minipop4747

I have the same problem, did you found the solution?

If yes, could you share it?

Exactly same issue on my end - I wonder if it is working at all ?!?

I'm having the same problem. Cacti v1.1.38 on Centos 7. I'm capturing flows--I can see them in the right folder, but no matter what I do I can't get it to display any data---just a blank screen. Any logs that may give me some sort of an idea what's going wrong---the cacti.log file is not telling me anything.

Any ideas? I really want to retire my 0.8 server but I can't until I can get the flowviewer working properly.
