      Question :

      Is it possible to estimate how much bandwidth will be generate between the hosts and the proxy?

          The amount of throughput is going to vary based on environment and largely driven by the netflow data.  Sadly, any netflow calculators aren’t much better than a “guestimate”.  The best way is to enable and monitor….thankfully vRNI can easily help with that.  One option would be to run a query to show you the total bytes of netflow traffic….i.e. sum(bytes) of flows where vm = ProxyServerName and port = 2055.

          Another important point, is if you are worried about traffic over the WAN, deploying a vRNI Proxy (i.e. Collector) at every site will reduce the amount of traffic sent back to the vRNI Platform appliance, as the Proxy performs some optimizations to reduce the data.
