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

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

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

OPTIONS
       -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 255.255.255.0	 would
		 convert  flows	 with source/destination IP addresses 10.1.1.1
		 and 10.2.2.2 to 10.1.1.0 and 10.2.2.0 respectively.

       -V pdu_version
		 Use pdu_version format	when transmitting.

	   1	NetFlow	version	1 (No sequence numbers,	AS, or mask)
	   5	NetFlow	version	5
	   6	NetFlow	version	6 (5+ Encapsulation size)
	   7	NetFlow	version	7 (Catalyst switches)
	   8.1	NetFlow	AS Aggregation
	   8.2	NetFlow	Proto Port Aggregation
	   8.3	NetFlow	Source Prefix Aggregation
	   8.4	NetFlow	Destination Prefix Aggregation
	   8.5	NetFlow	Prefix Aggregation
	   8.6	NetFlow	Destination (Catalyst switches)
	   8.7	NetFlow	Source Destination (Catalyst switches)
	   8.8	NetFlow	Full Flow (Catalyst switches)
	   8.9	NetFlow	ToS AS Aggregation
	   8.10	NetFlow	ToS Proto Port Aggregation
	   8.11	NetFlow	ToS Source Prefix Aggregation
	   8.12	NetFlow	ToS Destination	Prefix Aggregation
	   8.13	NetFlow	ToS Prefix Aggregation
	   8.14	NetFlow	ToS Prefix Port	Aggregation
	   1005	Flow-Tools tagged version 5

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

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

	 flow-cat /flows/krc4 |	flow-send 0/10.0.0.1/9500

       Generate	a test pattern of version 7 flows and send them	to a collector
       at 10.0.0.1 listening on	port 9500.

	 flow-gen -V7 |	flow-send 0/10.0.0.1/9500

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