How to report on NetFlow.

NetFlow Data Storage
Statseeker is designed to store data for a limited time period. The default is 90 days and can be customized by the Statseeker Administrator.
To do this:
Note: The only limitation on data storage is the hard drive capacity of the Statseeker server.
To monitor the current storage being used by NetFlow:
Note: NetFlow data is pruned overnight.
