Which one of the following fields would NOT be found in a NetFlow record?

A. Payload
B. Source Address
C. Destination Address
D. Timestamp

Correct Answer: A

Think of NetFlow as similar to a telephone bill. You get a record of communications, but not the actual communications themselves. So, source address, destination address, and timestamp are included in those records and are not the correct answer to this question, where we’re looking for something that is NOT included in NetFlow logs.

NetFlow records only contain summary information about network connections. They do not contain the actual content, or payload, from the connection. So, payload is the correct answer here.
