Open-source netflow collectors?

    Hi all,

     

    Until NFA can route it's data similar to CAPC (hint-hint), I need to get Netflow data into Kafka/ElasticSearch.  Wondering if anyone has found any good, reliable, open-source collectors for Netflow, that can route data to Kafka?

     

    Thanks!

    If you want to send to Elasticsearch, Logstash has a NetFlow coded plugin:

    Scott,

     

    Is that what you're looking for? Did the URL from Renato answer the question posed here?

     

    Thanks,

    Mike

    I’m just beginning to look at it, but yes, it does look like what I  want.

     

    Thanks.
