IP Flow Information Export

IP Flow Information Export

Internet Protocol Flow Information Export (IPFIX) is an IETF protocol, as well as the name of the working group defining the protocol. It was created based on the need for a common, universal standard of export for Internet Protocol flow information from routers, probes, and other devices that are used by mediation systems, accounting/billing systems, and network management systems to facilitate services such as measurement, accounting, and billing. The IPFIX standard defines how IP flow information is to be formatted and transferred from an exporter to a collector. Previously many data network operators were relying on the proprietary Cisco Systems NetFlow standard for traffic flow information export.

The IPFIX standards requirements were outlined in the original RFC 3917. Cisco NetFlow Version 9 was the basis for IPFIX. The basic specifications for IPFIX were published in 2008 as RFC 5101, RFC 5102 and RFC 5103.

Famous quotes containing the words export, information and/or flow:

    The rumor of a great city goes out beyond its borders, to all the latitudes of the known earth. The city becomes an emblem in remote minds; apart from the tangible export of goods and men, it exerts its cultural instrumentality in a thousand phases.
    In New York City, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    English literature is a kind of training in social ethics.... English trains you to handle a body of information in a way that is conducive to action.
    Marilyn Butler (b. 1937)

    Our sense of these things changes and they change,
    Not as in metaphor, but in our sense
    Of them. So sense exceeds all metaphor.
    It exceeds the heavy changes of the light.
    It is like a flow of meanings with no speech
    And of as many meanings as of men.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
