This sounds like the equivalent of the IOS packet sampling on the Cisco
ip route-cache flow sampled
ip flow-sampling-mode packet-interval <value>
In JUNOS, is it possible to configure it to sample every packet for
version 5 flow export? (I may be able to experiment with FlowScan with
flows from a Juniper M20 later this month...)
Recent experimentation that a colleague has been doing with a GSR with
OC48 POS interfaces, running 12.0(13.3)S, shows that the most frequent
sampling rate he can select for the OC48 POS interface is 1 packet in
I'm curious about all this because it will influence how we
post-process the flow data w/cflowd and other tools.
For instance, some of FlowScan's CampusIO report application detection
expects to be seeing every packet in the flow records, so I may need to
loosen up some of the rules in FlowScan if the flows are based on
packet sampling. Also, the resulting graphs need to be scaled
accordingly (and labeled as "estimates" based on sampling, so I
probably need to introduce another RRD that stores the sampling rate.
Anyone know if the current sampling rate (on the Cisco or Juniper) is
available via SNMP?
