About a year ago, I was horsing around with Netflow tools. I built a Docker image to make it easy to install FlowViewer. I also factored the FlowViewer source files to make it easier to install in a Docker instance. I have no opinion whether Docker would be a good solution for a high performance Netflow collector. However, this Dockerfile makes it easy (~15 minutes) to get started with testing.

Grab the files from my github repo's:


I also made a couple other Docker instances of Netflow tools. They're mentioned in my blog: http://richb-hanover.com/netflow-collectors-for-home-networks/
