asr1004 doesn't export netflow statistic from vrf interface. 122-33.XNF2


Hello, colleagues.

I have asr routers with flow export configured. Flow-collector with ip address 10.10.129.114 receives statistic from exporter 10.10.132.144. But in fact traffic from router to flow-collector goes not over interface in vrf but over global routing table.

So routers are sending statistic with vrf source, but not over vrf interface. Is it some known bag?

it looks like unsupported see

Re: asr1004 doesn't export netflow statistic from vrf interface.

Giuseppe provided a link to the other thread, but this is not supported on the ASR1000.

12.2(33)XNF brought support for Netflow Export to a destination in a VRF for the ASR1000, but it is not supported on the Gig0 interface.


If you try to configure the source as Gig0 there was a check put in which informs you this is not supported:


Router(config)#ip flow-export source gig0
%Interface GigabitEthernet0 cannot be used as an exporter source!


Netflow collection and export happens directly on the ESP and does not require the RP to function. The  ESP has no way to interact with the Gig0 interface directly since the management interface is part of the RP.

asr1004 doesn't export netflow statistic from vrf interface. 122

I just hit this problem on an ASR1002-X, google the error and hit your very useful explanation! Thanks George! Looks like I'll be configuring Gig0/0/5 as the management interface rather than Gig0 so we can netflow exports out of the router.

Thanks again!
