If you are looking for detailed network information , I would like to
recommend you to look at the Narus Semantic Traffic Analyzer (STA) approach.
Our network passive analysis device could provide you with deep information
which include not only NetFlow-like parameters, but also TCP specific QoS
(retransmission, latency, etc.) and layer 7 protocol attributes (HTTP URLs,
server response time, H.323 signaling, RTSP media characteristics and many
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need any more information.

Subject: Re: NDE Version 7 (Cat 6509)
Very bad news folks for NetFlow on the newer 6509.
the above URL details all of the fields in a Version 7 flow that are set to
zero. They include next_hop_ip, both source and destination AS, source and
port, source IP address, and protocol.
my $soapbox = 1;
Essentially, if you have a 6500 with a Sup 1a and MSFC1, you're golden. If
you have a Sup2 w/ MSFC2 then NetFlow is dead to you. Cisco did the same
thing when they added the 3 port Gig card to their GSR line. Cisco went to
Netflow Version 8 which is an "aggregation" - read labotomization - of any
useful flow data. It bums me out considerably that the only way Cisco makes
their stuff faster is to strip out all of the features hardcore users
require. What's next SNMP? How about ACLs?
Thank God for Juniper! Cisco deserves to get their lunch eaten. When it
happens, I'll dance a jig on the grave of the GSR.
