    OK... What we're interested in is what the $nexthopip and $output_if
    values are for your outbound flows.

    Try this, and look for outside world destination IP addresses in the
    3rd column:

       $ flowdumper -ne 'printf("%-15.15s %2d %-15.15s\n", $nexthopip, $output_if, $dstip)' flows.current

    What $nexthopip (1st column) and $output_if values are you seeing for
    these outbound flows?

    If the nexthops are as you say, your local routers, then you're
    probably exporting flows from the wrong router(s). See the cflowd
    configuration docs, specifically:
    The exporter should be at the "border" of your network.

    If your nexthops are the same as the $dstip, which I have seen in
    simple configurations with ip unnumbered interfaces using default to
    route all outbound traffic, then you must use OutputIfIndexes, as
    apparently you've tried:

    f the above things don't help, check the "flowscan" list archive:

    or join the "flowscan" mailing list. Instructions are here:

    and we can continue this thread there. (I cross posted this reply.)
