Re: Traffic Analizer
Junipers with Internet Processor IIs and JunOS >= 4.2 also support exporting netflow records (version 5 or 8). Unfortunately they do it by sampling each Nth packet (where N is configurable) and sending to the SCB (the juniper routing engine). The connection to the SCB is only 100Mb while the router supports much higher speed interfaces, so we have had to use low sampling rates to avoid saturating the SCP connection. In practice we optically split trunks and use passive monitors (up to OC12, working on OC48). http://www.juniper.net/techpubs/software/junos42/swconfig-interfaces42/html/sampling-config.html rob On Tue, Jan 09, 2001 at 11:15:14PM -0500, email@example.com wrote: > > On Tue, 9 Jan 2001, Chris Adams wrote: > > > > NetFlow and related tools.
