With the exception of vendor specific variations of NetFlow, there are 2 different implementations of NetFlow:
- Standard Netflow: The standard NetFlow implementation will collect all IP traffic information.
- Sampled Netflow: Only 1 out of x packets is processed. For internet backbones is standard NetFlow to resource intensive, that's why they only collect samples instead of all the traffic.
The Palo Alto Networks firewall supports the standard NetFlow implementation.
