Any recommendation for netflow puglins.. is there one for Free? or low cost ?
Can it be used as addons in cacti or weathermap?

If you are downloading from above, I would suggest that you use the released versions. The develop is under development.

@cigamit and @netniV

Thanks for your response..
https://github.com/cacti/plugin_flowview
i checked.. it says it will show report off of your netflow data.. so you need netflow collector separately?

@netniV
When you says released version what that means? latest stable version? is it 2.1 ?

Thanks.

If you use the master branch, it requires you use the flow-tools binaries and set it up to collect data. The development branch does it own processing, but as it is under active development, it is not ready for prime time just yet (lots of bugs).

Hi,
do you have explicit instructions for getting netflow working on cacti 1.x?
i am running .28 right now (second newest), and the port never opens up.
There is very limited instructions in the README file in the zip, it doesn't mention anything about using a third party collector anymore, and most of the config fields are missing from the new version (i assume because cacti is running the collector and not relying on flow-tools or similar to store it).

other than unzipping, installing and enabling through the web interface, is there anything else required as long as that port is open on the pc?

i tried unzipping the .tgz file for 0.8.8 master and it says the file is not complete download of version 1.1 regardless of how many times i download it or where i download it to, appears corrupt?
