Problem Description

When PacketShaper emits flow detail records (FDRs), into which class does the traffic get classified?


Flow detail record packets are automatically classified into two pre-defined classes:

FlowRecords — includes Packeteer-1 and Packeteer-2 FDRs

NetFlowV5 — includes NetFlow v5 FDRs emitted by the PacketShaper

The appropriate class is automatically created as soon as a collector is enabled. For example, if a Packeteer-2 collector is defined and enabled, the FlowRecords class will be created and this class will track all FDR traffic emitted to the defined Packeteer-2 collector.

The service names correspond to the class names: FlowRecords and NetFlowV5.
