       flow-send — Transmit flow data with the NetFlow protocol.


       flow-send   [-h]    [-d  debug_level]   [-m  privacy_mask]   [-s]   [-x  xmit_delay]   [-V
       pdu_version] localip/remoteip/port


       The flow-send utility is used to transmit flows in NetFlow format to a collector specified
       by localip/remoteip/port.


       -d debug_level
                 Enable debugging.

       -h        Display help.

       -s        Enable spoofing of source IP address.

       -m privacy_mask
                 Apply  privacy_mask  to  the  source  and  destination IP address of flows.  For
                 example   a   privacy_mask   of   would   convert   flows   with
                 source/destination  IP  addresses and to and

       -V pdu_version
                 Use pdu_version format when transmitting.

       -x xmit_delay
                 Configure a microsecond transmit delay between packets.  This may  be  necessary
                 in some configurations to prevent a transmit buffer overrun.


       Transmit  all flows in the directory /flows/krc4 to the collector at listening on
       port 9500.

         flow-cat /flows/krc4 | flow-send 0/

       Generate a test pattern of version 7 flows and  send  them  to  a  collector  at
       listening on port 9500.

         flow-gen -V7 | flow-send 0/


       It  is  not currently possible to convert between the aggregated formats (8.x) and the non
       aggregated formats (1,5,6,7).
