    I have been seeing the same thread in which cflowdmux/cflowd/cfdcollect
    are all running but the flow files are empty. I am experienceing the
    same problem.

    Here is my enviornment:
    Solaris 2.6
    arts++-1-1-a6
    cflowd-2-1-b1 (patched)
    FlowScan-1.006

    I have a Catalyst 6509 configured for NDE:

    switch> sho mls nde
    Netflow Data Export version: 7
    Netflow Data Export enabled
    Netflow Data Export configured for port 2055 on host xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
    Total packets exported = 1660592
    switch>

    Here is what my unix system tells me: (runing Solaris 2.6)

    explain% ps -ef | grep cfl
    flowscan 1783 1 0 14:38:00 pts/5 0:00 cflowd

    cflowd/etc/cfdcollect.conf
    flowscan 1826 1819 0 14:50:41 pts/1 0:00 grep cfl

    explain%

    I did a tcpdump and I can see packets coming from my switch to my
    server, but nothing else happens. I don't see any messages in my
    syslog file. No errors, no confirmation that the processes have
    started, nothing.

    Any suggestions, direction where to continue looking/troubleshooting
    would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
