Description (partial)

In Nexus7000 with netflow configuration, one or more following symptoms are observed:

Applying configs (e.g., "copy bootdisk:backup running-config") takes longer time. 
E.g., 5 minutes (without netflow config) vs. 30 mins (with netflow configs)
As a result, control-plane protocols (like OSPF) takes longer time to converge.

Nexus7000 switch exporting netflow statistics even after configs are removed.
May report NFM-3-MONITOR_NOT_FOUND error messages.

ACL TCAMs in the hardware not updated even after netflow configs removed.
"show hardware access-list vlan X input statistics module Y" indicates netflow sampler/profile is still present in the hardware.

Saving the config with "copy run start" may report:
%NFM-4-NFM_DDB_WARNING: DDB warning: DDB Error: <hexadecimal>

Sampled netflow on F2 card does not collect or export any data.
Or, it exports with FlowSet ID not matching the Template ID.
The above-mentioned issues are seen in Sup1/Sup2E running 6.x releases.
