Netflow on Catalyst 6500

Unanswered Question
Jul 14th, 2009

*Hi Guys,

I'm trying to capture netflow traffic on a 6509 switch using Supervisor 720. I already enabled netflow on the MSFC and I do now know if I enabled all required configuration for the PFC. Here's my configuration.

mls flow ip destination-source

mls flow ipv6 full

mls nde sender version 5

interface vlan 1

ip route-cache flow

interface vlan 150

ip route-cache flow

I followed the configuration found on this link,

I cannot configure mls flow ip full and I do not know why. It's giving me this error. "% Unable to configure flow mask for ip protocol: full. Reset to the default flow mask type: none". So I have to stick with destination-source. Also, the command **ip flow ingress layer2-switched vlan 10,20 is not available.

I am trying to capture traffic that traverses the MSFC then the firewall. Is there other way I can configure IP accounting and traffic measurement like NetFlow on an ASA firewall? The traffic on the firewall displays 3 to 4Mbps of traffic but the Netflow reading on my Netflow Analyzer is too low. Around 1Mbps only. Can anyone help me please? Thanks in advance.



I have this problem too.
