Feature Information for Flexible NetFlow


Configuring Cisco IOS Flexible NetFlow with Predefined Records


First Published: June 19, 2006
Last Updated: July 20, 2011

This module contains information about and instructions for configuring Flexible NetFlow using predefined records. Many of the Flexible NetFlow predefined records use the same key and nonkey fields as the aggregation caches available in original NetFlow. However, the predefined Flexible NetFlow records do not perform aggregation.

NetFlow is a Cisco IOS technology that provides statistics on packets flowing through a router. NetFlow is the standard for acquiring IP operational data from IP networks. NetFlow provides data to support network and security monitoring, network planning, traffic analysis, and IP accounting.

Flexible NetFlow improves on original NetFlow by adding the capability to customize the traffic analysis parameters for your specific requirements. Flexible NetFlow facilitates the creation of more complex configurations for traffic analysis and data export through the use of reusable configuration components.

Feature Information for Flexible NetFlow

Prerequisites for Configuring Flexible NetFlow with Predefined Records

You are familiar with the information in the "Cisco IOS Flexible NetFlow Overview" module.

The networking device must be running a Cisco IOS release that supports Flexible NetFlow. See the "Cisco IOS Flexible NetFlow Features Roadmap" module for a list of Cisco IOS software releases that support Flexible NetFlow.

IPv4 Traffic

The networking device must be configured for IPv4 routing.

One of the following must be enabled on your router and on any interfaces on which you want to enable Flexible NetFlow: Cisco Express Forwarding or distributed Cisco Express Forwarding.

IPv6 Traffic

The networking device must be configured for IPv6 routing.

One of the following must be enabled on your router and on any interfaces on which you want to enable Flexible NetFlow: Cisco Express Forwarding IPv6 or distributed Cisco Express Forwarding IPv6.

Flexible NetFlow Predefined Records

Flexible NetFlow predefined records are based on the original NetFlow ingress and egress caches and the aggregation caches. The difference between the original NetFlow aggregation caches and the corresponding predefined Flexible NetFlow records is that the predefined records do not perform aggregation. Flexible NetFlow predefined records are associated with a Flexible NetFlow flow monitor the same way that you associate a user-defined (custom) record.

Benefits of Flexible NetFlow Predefined Records

If you have been using original NetFlow or original NetFlow with aggregation caches you can continue to capture the same traffic data for analysis when you migrate to Flexible NetFlow by using the predefined records available with Flexible NetFlow. Many users will find that the preexisting Flexible NetFlow records are suitable for the majority of their traffic analysis requirements.

Flexible NetFlow "NetFlow Original" and "NetFlow IPv4 Original Input" Predefined Records

The Flexible NetFlow "NetFlow original" and "NetFlow IPv4 original input" predefined records can be used interchangeably because they have the same key and nonkey fields.

The Flexible NetFlow "source prefix" predefined record creates flows based on source prefixes in the network traffic. The Flexible NetFlow "source prefix" predefined record uses the same key and nonkey fields as the original NetFlow "source prefix" aggregation cache.


Note This predefined record can be used to analyze IPv4 and IPv6 traffic.


Table 16 lists the key and nonkey fields used in the Flexible NetFlow "source prefix" predefined record.

How to Configure Flexible NetFlow Using a Predefined Record for the Flow Monitor

The tasks in this section explain how to configure Flexible NetFlow using a predefined record for the flow monitor.


Note Only the keywords and arguments required for the Flexible NetFlow commands used in these tasks are explained in these tasks. For information on the other keywords and arguments available for these Flexible NetFlow commands, refer to the Cisco IOS Flexible NetFlow Command Reference.


To configure and enable Flexible NetFlow using a predefined record, perform the following tasks:

Configuring a Flow Monitor for IPv4 Traffic Using a Predefined Record (required)

Configuring a Flow Monitor for IPv6 Traffic Using a Predefined Record (required)

Configuring a Flow Monitor for IPv4 Traffic Using a Predefined Record

To configure a flow monitor for IPv4 traffic using a predefined record for the flow monitor, perform the following required task.

Each flow monitor has a separate cache assigned to it. Each flow monitor requires a record to define the contents and layout of its cache entries. The record format can be one of the predefined record formats, or an advanced user may create his or her own record format using the collect and match commands in Flexible NetFlow flow record configuration mode.
