Can SevOne Ingest JSON records as flow records?

We are using the Cisco Nexus Dashboard Insights and have found a way to write the telemetry data out to a NFS mount point. It some out in a stream of multiple changing files.

Below is a example of the output of the file. It looks to give us much more data than the flow data from ACI. We are looking for the best method to ingest that into SevOne. One option I thought about was to put the mount point on the SevOne DNC and have it ingest it into the database. With ACI it is either flow or telemetry. You can see from the data below that telemetry has more data in it.

Thanks for your help on this.

    Hi Folks -

    At the moment we only support ingest of flow records via Netflow v5/9/IPFIX/sFlow/jFlow/cFlow (or similar flow technologies), however we are in the process of evaluating bringing in more flow types including from flat files.

    One thing I suggest checking - I can see these devices also support Netflow export - have you checked on the CLI to see if the flow template collect commands also include some of the extended fields in your record? The default flow record on the Nexus range is quite simple but you can add many more fields by creating your own flow template and adding more 'collect' items. Unfortunatly Cisco doesn't publish the full range of collect options in it's online documentation so you'll need to check this on the CLI.

    More information -

    Let me know how you get on.

    Kind Regards,
