NetFlow is a network analysis tool that you can use to monitor network monitoring and virtual machine traffic. It is available on dvSwitches that are version 5.0 or later.

NetFlow is configured in the dvSwitches’ settings window. To configure NetFlow, go to the Networking view in the vSphere client, right click on the dvSwitch and click ‘Edit Settings’. Once the settings windows has opened, go to the NetFlow tab:
