Flow Monitoring with cflowd v5

    I need to configure cflowd version 5 monitoring on MX480 routers and send flow data to an external collector. The router has MPC7e line cards and two REs (model RE-S-2X00x6) but we don't have any service cards. I took a look at documentation but found lots of confusing info as there are inline/active/passive methods each with different limitations and requirements. so I didn't manage to decide on what method should I use on the device. 
    As far as I know the in passive mode the port/card cannot participate in routing, so this option can be ignored cause we need routing and monitoring at the same time. 
    I would appreciate any suggestion on this.
