    You show outbound flows by polling all the interfaces that feed data to ISP A and then filtering out data to your own AS (if one interface on router X sends traffic to another interface on router X that is not destined to ISP A).

    It's a pain, but NetFlow only gives one direction.

    i.e. I have a given router with 2 uplinks to our ISP and 4 interfaces/subnets. I poll data from all 4 subnets and add it up, then subtract data destined back to my AS. For inbound stats, I just poll the two uplinks.
