    NetFlow itself is a networking protocol that collects IP traffic information as records and sends them to a collector such as CA NetQoS for traffic flow analysis. VMware vSphere 5 supports NetFlow v5, which is the most common version supported by network devices. NetFlow capability in the vSphere 5 platform provides visibility into virtual infrastructure traffic that includes :

    • Intrahost virtual machine traffic (virtual machine–to–virtual machine traffic on the same host)

    • Interhost virtual machine traffic (virtual machine–to–virtual machine traffic on different hosts)

    • Virtual machine to physical infrastructure traffic

    Hope this helped

    Best regards
