    Hello team,

    Where are the netflow logs stored? Can anyone point me to the log file?

    My problem is that from the command line I can see netflow streams entering correctly but via GUI no results are shown.

    Hello Luca,

    There are no netflow logs to review.

    Netflow in PandoraFMS startsup the nfcapd process which will store the information it collects inside /var/spool/pandora/data_in/netflow

    If you have any information inside that folder you should be able to see it in PanodraFMS.

    Verify that you have nfcapd running with a ps aux command and make sure you have data stored inside the netflow folder.

    Kind regards,

    Sergio B.

    Hi Sergio,

    nfcapd daemon is running.

    [xxxx@xxxxx util]# ps -ef | grep nfcapd
    root 2345 1 0 Nov27 ? 00:03:06 /usr/bin/nfcapd -D -T all -w -t 3600 -P /var/run/pandora_nfcapd.pid -l /data/netflow

    Folder where store netflow data is /data/netflow and is populated.

    Also if i run nfdump -R /data/netflow i see the flows correctly but via GUI not.

    Any suggestion?

    Thanks in advance

    BR

    Hello Luca,

    Can you please share an screenshot of your netflow folder contents in order to see the permissions you have in the files and the files size?

    Thanks in advance.

    Kind regards,

    Sergio B.

        Hello Luca,

        Sizes seem to be ok and permissions too.

        Are you filtering inside the Console with the correct dates that this information was provided?

        Is the Netflow server active and running?

        Kind regards,

        Sergio B.

    Hi Sergio,

    the filter from GUI is ok. I filter with the correct date.

    How can I verify that the netflow server is active and running?

    BR
