Issue/Introduction

The new NFA Admin page in NetOps Performance Management r20.2.1 doesn't sort the Last Flow column by date.
 
It appears to do an alphabetical sort on the date month instead.
 
Only happens on the NFA Admin page while the NFA Console still sorts correctly.
 
Neither Ascending nor Descending sort orders work properly.

Cause

When the user sorts on the 'Last Flow' column in 'All Interfaces' page, the sorting happens on string format of the date rather than on epoch time.

Environment

NetOps Performance Management releases r20.2.1 or older

Resolution

To avoid sorting on String format of date, an invisible column is created holding the epoch time in long format which will be sorted when the user sorts on the last flow column.

This is resolved with new code, via defect DE470887, in the r20.2.3 and newer releases of DX NetOps Performance Management.
