Knowing when your network is having a problem before it becomes critical is becoming more and more important. Working better and smarter is something that everyone can do better. This is the first of a two part conversation I had with Michael about Netflow and how best to use it. You dont have to buy an expensive monitoring system to get the most from Netflow. Just as important, you dont have to be an all Cisco shop to be able to use Netflow either. Michael also has a good section in his book about setting up your own Netflow collection system without hocking your firstborn or the family jewels.
