flow-receive [-h] [-b big|little] [-C comment] [-d debug_level] [-o output_file] [-S stat_interval] [-V pdu_version] [-z z_level] localip/remoteip/port
The flow-receive utility is used to receive flows in NetFlow
format. When the remoteip is configured only flows
from that exporter will be processed, this is the most secure and recommended
configuration. When the localip is configured
flow-receive will only process flows
sent to the localip IP address. If
remoteip is 0 (not configured) flows from any
source IP address are accepted. Multiple non aggregated PDU versions may
be accepted at once to support Cisco's Catalyst 6500 NetFlow
implementation which exports from both the supervisor and MSFC with the
same IP address and same port but different export versions. In this case
the exports will be stored in the format specified by the -V flag or
whichever export type is received first.
- -b big|little
- Byte order of output.
- -C Comment
- Add a comment.
- -d debug_level
- Enable debugging.
- Display help.
- -o file
- Write to file instead of the standard out.
- -S stat_interval
- When configured flow-receive will emit a timestamped message on stderr every stat_interval minutes indicating counters such as the number of flows received, packets processed, and lost flows.
- -V pdu_version
- Use pdu_version format output.

- -z z_level
- Configure compression level to z_level. 0 is disabled (no compression), 9 is highest compression.
Listen on port 9800 on any local interface for exports from IP address 10.0.0.1, store the exports in flows
flow-receive 0/10.0.0.1/9800 > flows
Listen on port 9800 on any local interface from any IP address, display the received flows with flow-print.

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