Pfflowd - flow export timeout



  • Is there a way to get pfflowd to report the flows to the listener even if there aren't any flows?

    I'm using Scrutinizer and they expect flow reports every 30 seconds minimum is what I was told.

    The pfflowd just outputs flows at some other interval. This causes the Scrutinizer to adjust the rate of traffic proportional to time and you get rediculous readings on interface traffic like 32 TB/sec data transfers.

    They said they didn't have any way to adjust this on their end and if you use a router, you change a setting on it to have a max time to wait for flows before reporting to the collector.

    I'm hoping pfflowd also has a setting like that so we can get our interface utilitization numbers correct.

    Thanks,
    Chuck
