Q. I am receiving flow records from multiple exporters on our network. Does Flows combine this data into one flow?
A. The answer is no, but not because of inability, but because of correctness:
If you have a big river, and it forks somewhere downstream into two smaller rivers. Now you measure the total volume of water flowing through a measurement upstream, and you measure the total volume of water flowing through one of the two smaller rivers downstream of the fork? How much water did you measure? Should you subtract, or even discard duplicate water? Does that make sense? If you did that the river would seem much higher than it ought to be based on the graph you are plotting!
That said, we are thinking hard about the correct representation of this problem. In our upcoming product we might refuse to de-dupe in the graphs, but when tracing an individual flow, we will do it.
