that you have added your Flow Collectors, you can configure the Flow Sources, a
Flow Source being a Host that is sending Flow data inbound into an Opsview
add a Flow Source, edit a collector and navigate to the ‘Sources’ tab:
the example screenshot above, we have added a Flow Collector but it has no Flow
Sources yet. To add a new Flow Source, click on the ‘Add new’ button which will
load a new section at the bottom of the screen:
the example above, we have added our Flow Source, ‘Cisco2611’, and its IP
address has been determined via lookup. If the IP address cannot be looked up,
then the field will display an error as shown below:
error is displayed as Opsview Monitor needs to know the IP address of the Host
in order to map the received Flow data (which contains a ‘From:’ field
containing an IP address) to the Host, i.e. ‘rutland.opsera.com ==
192.168.15.12’. To add the IP, click on ‘Override IP Address?’ and manually
enter the IP address.
the correct Host and IP address has been entered, ensure you have selected
‘Active’ – otherwise the Flow Source wont be displayed within the Network
‘update’ to save any changes you have made to the individual Flow Source, and
then finally click ‘Submit Changes’ to close the window and save the newly
added Flow Sources.
reload is then required to apply the changes to both the Flow Collector and the
newly-added Flow Sources.
